Although I feel a bit improved over what I have been feeling, I am weaker than before, again. My walking exercises are back to two stretches instead of four and both with my walker. When I get out of bed, I again have to use this darned walker because I am just too unstable. I cannot even lift my legs to do the exercises I was starting before these darned shingles attacked.
So I am trying to spend some time out of bed, at least, and at the computer reading and doing some research until I’m overcome with the need to lie down again—that does not take very long. I don’t think I remembered just how lousy shingles made me feel in the past. I am only now getting reacquainted with that reality. Back to bed and to drinking more water with my last pill of Valacyclovir.
Giggle for the afternoon: just saw the baby panda at the San Diego Zoo, Xiao Liwu, fall off the platform followed by Mom Bai Yun climbing down to check on him. Watching pandas is such a delight.
