Oh wise ones - please give me some advice. I am due to spend my usual Wednesday with my almost 98 year old mother tomorrow but I’ve just phoned her to confirm arrangements only to be told she has developed shingles, poor thing.
Now, I’ve just been reading up about it and it seems to me that you can’t catch shingles from someone else. I had chickenpox as a child so I have the virus lurking in me, but I did have the shingles vaccination just three weeks ago. I am now down to 1/2 mg pred a day and feeling as well as I have done for about 3 years, but I guess my immunity is still compromised - or is it? Should I go and see her? She will be even more miserable if I don’t. Help!
And I need to take a chicken to the vet first......
Any words of advice would be much appreciated.
