Update on Marcel

March 24th, 2010

Since it has been a few days, I thought I’d update y’all on Marcel’s current shingle situation. The pain has been severe to the point that he can’t hardly stand it, and he’s been unable to do anything, including work. He called in sick yesterday and I’m not sure when he’ll return, I guess at the point when he starts being able to move without the excruciating pain he’s experiencing. I feel bad for him.

This morning the doc called in some morphine for him to see if that would help, since nothing else has been. So far it hasn’t done anything, and he’s convinced it isn’t helping either, even though he’s only taken one dose. I guess we’ll see how it goes over the next couple of days, but ultimately the only thing we can do at this point is wait and see what happens.

In the meantime, my already busy schedule has become even more busy. The little things that Marcel always took care of, such as walking the dog when he was home and I’m working, or doing the laundry, are all things that are falling on my shoulders. By the time the dinner dishes are done and I can sit and relax, I’m exhausted. But like everything else- this too is temporary and shall pass.

Spring is here, and that’s definitely something to smile about.
