Not for the faint of heart.....

I know this image is a bit 'gross' but it is ~ what it is.

Emma Sage has singles.....poor little thing.

She never complains, but it was starting to look funky [and I knew poison ivy does not act that way]so we went to the emergency care on Saturday and then to her primary doctor today [because the anti-viral medicine they gave her, it turns outm that she is allergic to it]

So, if anyone needs to get the 'Chicken Pox' naturally, give us a call and come visit. Those of you who have had the Chicken Pox naturally, don't need to worry, you can't catch Singles and you can't get the Chicken Pox again.

Remember I warned you......as this picture is a bit gross.
Shingles

I had first thought that the original patch was poison ivy, so we put a guaze over the ivy cream [and that is why you see tape marks on her skin]....because it is so painful and tender, we have not been able to scrub the tabe residue off....so that looks pretty gross too.

It takes 4 to 5 weeks for her to heal and recover.....and I'm praying this is her only battle with singles in her lifetime.

Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry- I've heard that shingles is one of the most painful things to have! Hope she gets better soon.

Thank you Kim and akakarma.....

she is a wee love!

She is such a trooper, she has not complained one bit, execpt to pull away if anything gets near that side, so you can tell it hurts.

Oh poor baby! That looks painful. My dad had it a few years ago. It looked so painful and just awful. I hope she heals fast with no scarring.
