Getting punctures . . .

We feel so virtuous this morning. We kept appointments to get flu shots - J and I both. We were waiting in the treatment room together when Evelyn brought in the syringes and laid them down on the sterile field. Then, she went across the hall and I mentioned to J that he could give himself his own shot. Evelyn heard me and asked if she needed to give me a time-out. I told her she could just give him both shots, in that case. Didn't work that way, though. Evelyn believes in ladies first.

We will go back in a month or so for the pneumonia shot. I have heard of folks taking them together and getting reactions to them. Of course there are reactions to just the flu shot by itself but we have been fortunate there.

BigEd got his last week. We are not flu-proof but closer than we were before . . .

LOL, a timeout. Life would not be fun if we could not joke around. One of the Dr.s at my work was offering free Flu shots to all employees in the hallway, and well, I declined. It was early in the morning and I was just to tired, OK chicken. I also mentioned that I have never had the Flu. He told me most patients get the Flu shot before they have the Flu. I just smiled. We were gathering bake goods for a fun raiser and it was just bad timing.

I got my flu shot.

Then. I. Got. My. Flu.

Still coughing a bit in the morning or when I talk too much. So, I guess they guessed wrong on the strain they used. All those little germs, floating around loose....

Oh no, we hope you are feeling better by now. I'm sorry you got the flu.

I'm sorry you got the flu, too. So far we are okay except for occasional mental lapses and I don't think I can blame those on the flu shot.
