Stacey, at the ripe old age of 22 has MUMPS! Not only does she look like a chipmonk, but she is in agony. Dr confirmed and also told her that apart from rest and painkillers, there is nothing he can prescribe. Being a virus, antibiotics won't help. She starts her exams on Thursday, but they have agreed to let her write in isolation with a face mask! It's hectic! Luckily she didn't get this while she was with her Dad. He starts chemo on Friday and CANNOT be exposed to this horrible virus!
Pharmacist recomended she wear a mask all the time as this will help lessen the chances of contamination!
