So back in the day of Timpview Basketball there was an article done on me and they referred to me as having "a myriad of health problems." I had to google the word myriad and it can be defined as countless or endless. Little did I know my "myriad of health problems" would continue. At the time my countless injuries consisted of a shattered ankle, some concussions, and a blown out knee. Now the endless part of the definition kicks in. I not only have some cancer issues but just found out I have shingles! Its a never ending continuation of health problems for me and my damaged immune system. On Monday I discovered a weird rash. Its gotten worse since Monday as in like, twice as worse. And little open sores have formed. So I thought I should go to the dermatologist (I am a freak about my skin) and he told me I have shingles. Here's a little brief on shingles...
- Shingles is a painful skin rash. It is caused by the varicella zoster virus. Shingles usually appears in a band, a strip, or a small area on one side of the face or body. You can't catch shingles from someone else who has shingles. But there is a small chance that a person with a shingles rash can spread the virus to another person who hasn't had chickenpox and who hasn't gotten the chickenpox vaccine.
Well I definitely have a strip of rash across my back and chest that's for sure. Anyways this should clear up eventually. Gotta monitor it very closely for now though. Some meds and IV will help this process move along faster though.
So... Besides the little shingles incident not a whole lot as happened. Corbin has left to serve his LDS Mission in Seoul Korea. Man I miss that kid. The house is so quiet and I find myself bored and confused as to what to do with my time. I have no one to entertain me, to run around in a speedo, to dance impulsively when I least expect it, to cause trouble with me, to make Michelle angry, and no one to go on 1 am In-N-Out runs or 4 am Betos runs. Really miss that kid but he's doing whats right and I can't wait for him to come home in 721 days :) He's doing great in the MTC though. He can now write in Korean as well as pray and say simple phrases. Its amazing how just 1 week has gone by and he can already do so much! I received a letter from him the other day where half of it was written in Korean. He's so funny. I love his letters and emails! I really miss him though. On the bright side, Bronson comes home in 60 days!!! Its crazy to me to think he will be home after being gone for so long. Send one best friend off and get another one back. I made a list of everything I have to take him to do and shared it with him. His response was, "Lex, I wanna be a missionary forever!" Yup, he's definitely been gone for way too long!!
Well besides cancer, shingles, and being without my 2 boys Brons and Corb, I'm so excited for this summer. Some of my summer events include...
