I know I promised the last MiniKit for the “Mums the Word” collection BUT, at my son’s instigation, I had the H1N1 flu vaccination on Tuesday evening. Now mind you, because a school teacher lives in a hotbed of germs and viruses, I’ve been having a seasonal flu shot for years with no side effects. HOWEVER, in my case, this cannot be said for the H1N1 vaccine.
I think I had every side effect known. The pain and the fever were bad and made even worse because they prevented me from sleeping. Anyway by 11 pm last evening my temperature returned to normal and the pain began to subside. A good night’s sleep has made me feel like a new woman so “All’s well that ends well.” I was a bit hesitant about having the H1N1 shot because the virus seems to be attacking mostly the young of our society and I felt they, along with the health-care workers should be targeted first leaving we “old-gaffers” (who, according to some reports, may have a bit of immunity through the exposure of our ancestors to the 1918 flu pandemic virus) until last. Anyway, the deed is done!
I probably won’t get anything up today because I’m in countdown mode now that I’m better for my usual Halloween “snack” on the 31st and a family Sunday dinner the next day. Every year after my grandchildren have finished their rounds of “trick-or-treating” they appear at Grammy and Grampy’s house for cheese dreams and Halloween cookies.
I’ve also had a couple of comments that I REALLY want to reply to but that will have to wait for a bit. If I’m not back before Halloween – HAVE A GREAT ONE!
