MUCH Better

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 made a difference.

So glad he's feeling better! I've heard (don't know if it's true) that relapses can be stress related, so just don't let him overdo it. (And I mailed off the pics today.)

Hooray, Hooray! Thanks for sharing the good news....continue to get better, Mark, because we all need to be riding bikes together sometime soon! (When the sun comes out)

Hooray, Mark. Please tell him I'm thrilled that he's on the mend. And thrilled for you too, as I know it's never easy to be the well spouse when your husband is sick.
