Triplet fawns

This is as painful as it looks. Now on Gabapentin for the neuropathic pain Must be working as he is finally asleep, though it is the middle of the day
Scare Bros?

Aside with encountering the great horned owl, the other day I came across triplet fawns on my run. They only look a few weeks old. Hopefully for their sake, winter will start late. Not sure how rare they are. I see twins quite often.

Last week I finally weighed less than my husband but with guests, that might not be true now. Plus this weekend, my workouts were limited as we had Maya the entire time and Steve was too sick to take care of her. She is gone now so I can be gone for longer periods of time. Just Steve's brother is here now and he does not get up until almost noon. I can't plug my music into the speakers but he couldn't hear my phone so I can workout with music downstairs and not bother him. We had a good visit with his wife who is now back in NYC teaching. Maya especially liked her.

I got yet another resale bike for her which she spent hours on this weekend. As long as she is moving, she is happy. Bonus, her health insurance has been reinstated, much faster than I would have guessed.

We had the whole family over Saturday to visit the New Yorkers, a full house. People wonder why we upsized versus downsized. Precisely for occasions like this. We couldn't fit everyone in our old house.

I am getting faster running finally. Yay! Easier when it is only 45 degrees.

That looks painful and bad. Hopefully the medicine will get him better quickly.

A work colleague got a bad case of shingles with even affected her eyes. Hospitalised for over six weeks. I hope Steve recovers quickly.

EC, a good friend had shingles in the face and had double vision. Fortunately Steve's shingles are away from his face. He seems to be sleeping more so hopefully that means less pain and that the gabapentin is helping.

Years ago when I had shingles the pharmacist suggested a capsacian creme. He said it would help deaden the nerves attacked by the shingles. So, I put a dab on one test area, put a cold compress on the area until the nerve frenzy died down. It worked, no real pain or itching after that. So the other areas got the same treatment(a small area at a time). Everyone has a different situation with shingles but the pharmacist's suggestion worked for me. Kris
