So I have been calling my cat friend every day, checking on her, being a contact with the outside world for her and generally trying to keep her spirits up while she endured the itching and pain of her shingles.
Right before I left I asked him to look at a spot on my back, and he casually said, what do you think it is? I said, shingles. He agreed!
So I went to see my family guy this afternoon who also agreed. Both assured me it is not contagious and I could not have gotten it from either friend. But I want you to know that the three of us, even though we have not been "rubbing elbows" in the last several months, ALL have shingles. ( I wonder why they call it shingles?)
