Shingles and (no) Surgery

Mitchell had some strange bumps in his armpit that were getting worse.
Paul went online and decided it was chickenpox. I didn't think so,
so I called the pediatrician.

Mitchell has shingles. More specifically, he has zoster. There's not
much to be done except keep it covered to prevent any skin-to-skin
contact.

As a result, Noah's surgery has had to be postponed.

Luckily, the doctor said that children with shingles don't experience
the pain and itching like adults.

Thank goodness for that!

Oh no! Poor Mitchell! I hope he's over it fast. What surgery was Noah going in for? I must have missed that.
