Hey, lotsadotsa, I too am a big Dean Koontz fan. I read Relentless already and was rather disappointed by it but to each his own. I am reading Twilight Eyes now. I'm sure I read it many, many years ago but I don't really remember much of it.
I have an appointment tomorrow with my PM doctor. The shingle sores, on chest, back, armpit and arm are getting better but yesterday I started having a numb, tingly feeling on my head and inside my ear is sore on that side now. Hope the nerve pain is not spreading more. I am going to ask for an increase for pain meds at night. I can't sleep more than 4 hrs. then the pain in my shoulder area gets really bad. I'll keep everyone updated.
