Sydney *SIGH*

My poor hubby!

All weekend Mark was talking about a "rash" that he saw forming on his back. I kept telling him that if it got worse, he should go to the doctor - but he kept saying, "I'm just waiting to see if it'll go away..." :P Men...

On Monday night when he picked me up from the airport, he was complaining about being in pain... When we got home, he took off his shirt to change, and that's when I saw it -- dozens of red welts all over his back and side!! I insisted that I take him to the emergency room and after MUCH arguing he finally let me drive him there...

Much like his centipede bite years ago, he kept refusing to have it checked out until I literally had to drag him to the ER. And most of the way there, he kept complaining about going... What is it about men that doesn't allow them to admit that they need to see a doctor? (or ask for directions?) ;)

Well, turns out he has a bad case of shingles! :P Poor guy!! I wonder if I hadn't dragged him there, though would he have gone to the doctor on his own? Probably not ...Men! :P

Poor guy got antibiotics and other medication and will be home from work for at least a couple of weeks. Though I'm sorry he has shingles, I'd envisioned possibly worse so I'm thankful that he'll be alright - I just wish it didn't take an act of God to get him to see a doctor! :P

On a MUCH less important note, I got a total of 2 hours of sleep last night because of all the time I spent trying to convince Mark to have me take him to the ER and the actual waiting in the ER. And after getting off my 6 hour plane ride home from LA, going to my class tonight until about 9pm, and having to wake up at 4am to catch a plane to Maui for work tomorrow - I'm a bit incoherent and loopy right now. I can't, for the life of me, manage to catch up on my life...

I feel SOOOOO overwhelmed! :P
