Hospitalization

Hopefully, I have done this correctly.  Shelly has been in the hospital for a week with shingles and they have moved into her eyes.  We are not sure how long we will be here, but she is currently unable  to see out of her left eye and is in a lot of pain.  She also is now having issues with her blood pressure dropping, so please say a prayer.  Thank you!
