    Finally saw my doc yesterday after 4PM. I showed her the spots on my tummy and breasts. She said, they aren't shingles.

    Come to find out, I have developed a drug allergy to all penicillin derived antibiotics! Thank you God! I am SO thankful I didn't have shingles.

    We got our new computer yesterday, so we've been busy hooking up, plugging in, installing software & hardware, and going nuts!

    Since my DH helped me with the puter, and I felt better today than in a while, I helped him with his "Big" truck.

    He just got another truck to haul his loads and the guy he got it from smoked like a chimney, so I helped him clean all the nicotine off the seats, walls, ceiling, and all.

    That was an awful job! (Glad I quit smoking)
    I'll probably pay for it tomorrow!

    Love and hugs,
    CockatooMom

    Yes, I heard that it is VERY painful.

    But you know what? I'm STILL itching like crazy, so now I'm wondering if I am allergic to the trazadone instread!
    I started taking that the same time I did my antibiotics.

    Oh...What a weekend!

    Hope it's sunny in NJ, it sure is in PA...but HOT!

    Talk to ya soon!

    Love and hugs,
