Well thank you to all who have been praying for me during this bout with shingles. It has truly proved to be a test for my patience. And I am not sure I am passing the test
The pain from the actual 'rash' is subsiding so sitting is an option again...the only way I could sit for almost two weeks was on ice packs. The nerve and muscle pain is now the challenge. Just when I think I am doing better and try to do any sort of exercise the leg gets very painful. So I am trying little by little to get more active. We started walking again on Sunday..at a snails pace
Could only make it 2 miles and it took me 50 minutes!!!
On the positive side since sitting is doable now I am relieved because Sunday I drive 6 hours and sit for 2 for Karyn's play. I may need some ice when I get home though
I am looking forward to our trip to Cali the end of May. A celebration month for the Roe family. Karyn graduates college, Kevyn gets home from Afghanistan and turns 21, and Kalyn turns 19!!! Some serious beach time is in order
So with the trip in mind I am TRYING to be patient and let my body heal. This is not my strong suit...I am a get it done yesterday type of person. I appreciate more than you know the encouragement and prayers from my spark friends.
