I was going to make the title shingles SUCK, but I decided to just put shingles because I didn't feel like it was politically correct. But truth be told, they really do SUCK and then some.  This is Kelley's friend Angie and I wanted to send along an update on our girl.  

She could use some extra love, prayers and maybe send her an uplifting or funny card.  This all started Sunday when she was trying to do a group painting experience at a local paint by number/paint by instruction store in Winghaven.  She came in and mentioned her forehead and the top of her head hurt.  It looked slightly bruised and she was sweating terrible.  We figured it was a chemo side-effect, so Lisa took her home.  Monday rolled around and several of us "diagnosed her with shingles.  The doctor officially diagnosed her that afternoon.  

It has affected her eye, which she is being properly treated for, but to say this is miserable is an understatement!!!  #KelleyStrong has been an incredible support and right now our favorite girl could use some uplifting!!!  Kelley doesn't feel the greatest, so Instead of phone calls, cards, emails or a comment on this journal entry would work best!!!!!

I talked to her a bit ago and she sounded better, definitely better than yesterday, but this has to run its course and that can take some time.  

My Best,  Angie
