Mark is feeling much better. He went back to work yesterday. He expected to be tired, which he was. In the morning. By yesterday afternoon he was actually feeling better than he had in the morning. And today he felt better still!
This afternoon he went back to the eye doctor, who gave him a clean bill of health and told him to come back in a year for a checkup.
Whew! Mark and I are both grateful that he (mostly) dodged the shingles bullet. Talking to others who have suffered through "normal" shingles has filled us with gratitude that his case seems to have been fairly mild.
Our thanks to so many who lent their prayers and love...you made a difference.
