Update from Lorraine (Ant’s wife)
The doctors assumed about the pneumonia. They reviewed his blood & urine and found out it is Shingles. In case everyone is wondering what is shingles?
Shingles (herpes zoster) is a viral infection of the nerve roots. It causes pain and a band of rash that spreads on one side of your body. Shingles is most common in older adults and people who have weakened immune systems because of stress, injury, certain medications, or other factors.
The herpes zoster that caused is the same thing that causes chicken pox.
Right now Anthony has this banging headache, sensitivity to light, and pain through his body.
But this is not as serious as pneumonia. So he is going to be just find they are going to give him antiviral medications and tylenol. Anthony just needs to relax so that everything can work. I tried relaxing him. But he is stubborn. He now has his cell phone. If anyone wants visit call me 908-922-0763. He is in Muelenburg room w-3. If you go you have to wear a face mask to prevent us from giving Anthony anything.
