Glad to hear you're on the mend. Work that PT and you'll be 100% before you now it.

I'm glad to hear that your recovery and rehab are moving along smoothly. I bet, in spite of your dear DH's kitchen successes, you'll be happy to be back on your feet and playing in your kitchen soon.

Thanks, sweetie Just between us , he's great at breakfast, but his dinner skills are more limited. He likes grilling and I've been helping a little by chopping some things, but he doesn't really like inside cooking. We'll both be happier when I'm back in the kitchen.

Glad to hear that you are feeling better.

Makes me think twice about getting the shots.

I'm much better today. I've been asking around on another forum and it seems like almost everyone has had a reaction to that vaccine, either to the first or second shot or both. I don't know why my reaction was so weird. If it hadn't been for the fingers, I don't think I'd have been nearly so miserable. That lasted for almost 10 hours.

I ended up taking a Benadryl about halfway through the day. That put me to sleep and helped me some. Then I took a second Benadryl at about 10pm and I slept through the night. Woke up this morning feeling great.

I got the shot at the Safeway pharmacy. I'll let the pharmacist know about this the next time I pick up my prescription (which might be tomorrow). I definitely would have had to go into to the ER and I would have done that if I got any sicker. We don't have any Urgent Cares open on weekends. At least, I don't think so.

But I have to say, I'd far rather get the shingles vaccine than have shingles again. I had shingles for two weeks about 11 years ago and I still have nerve damage on my face from them. If this shot prevents or even just mitigates shingles, I'm all for it!

I'm sure glad you're feeling better RT! I had the first shot, and two weeks later I got the Shingles. I don't know if it was just coincidence, but now I just can't bring myself to get the second shot. I was miserable. Souschef on the other hand, has had both the shots and other than a slightly sore arm he had no reaction.


GG, I'm really impressed with your progress. You rock girl!

So, the eye drop saga continues. I got a new 'script for eye drops and it made my eyes red and all the skin around my eyes was irritated, puffy, and red. So, I phoned the ophthalmologist and got new 'scripts. I started the second one two days ago. Today I woke up with itchy eyes and the red, irritated skin around one eye. I am getting so tired of this. I tried gooping up all the skin around my eyes with Vaseline, because I figured it was the drops oozing out from between my eyelids that might be causing the problem, but my eyes are still itchy and the skin is still red and irritated. I think this problem might have to do with my small, Asian eyes. I might need smaller drops, but I'm not even sure that is possible.
