Monday +168 (Evening)

Just a quick update to let everyone know that Jackie seems to be doing well with her pneumonia. Unfortunately she has had a Herpes viral flair. There are several types of Herpes Simplex. If you've ever had Chicken Pox then you've had Herpes. People with compromised immune systems are subject to Herpes outbreaks. These usually present as Shingles. In her case it was present in her mouth and sinus cavity. It has caused a lot of pain. They have prescribed some heavy-duty anti viral drugs that should knock the flair up down quickly.

We will be heading back to the Mayo Clinic on Wednesday. We will return on Saturday. They will be following up on her pneumonia and Herpes.

Until later...
