Update: It’s not hives…

it’s shingles. Four nights of very poor sleep apparently compromised my system enough to give my long dormant chicken pox virus a wake-up call. Although I can’t pass shingles on, and do not pose a risk to anyone who has had chicken pox, any direct contact between Finn and the affected part of my face may expose him to the virus. I find it sadly ironic: despite all of my efforts to keep Finn safe, I’ve become his most obvious threat.
