Kelly, what a beautiful picture and sentiment! And how true!

I am feeling MUCH better! The medicine really seems to be doing the trick. I was able to work the last 2 days and we are leaving for Arkansas for my family reunion tomorrow. I am so glad because we really need a few days away!

Thanks everyone for the support!

Yes, it's true, you can get it at any age; I'm only 43.

I think that 60's is an average age.
I've seen patients in their 20's have it.
Depends on what meds you're one or if you're immuno compromised.
Certainly not a very pleasant thing to deal with at any age.

But be sure to rest, too.
