H1N1 is stupid. You can quote me on that.


Don't worry - Halloween pics of EZ are incredibly cute, but I'm having technically difficulties in trying to upload them. They'll be up soon and I can assure you that they are worth the wait!

Back to the blog post topic. The H1N1 hysteria has freaked me out a bit. I've been debating about whether to get it for myself, and moreover, whether to get EZ vaccinated. When the healthy 13 yr old died in our community last week I got even more freaked out. Then a couple of loved ones in my family got it (why is there such a stigma attached to having swine flu?), and that REALLY freaked me out. Further, the media has been reporting 8-9 hr wait times at flu shot clinics, which really wouldn't be oodles of fun with a 9 1/2 month old.

So yesterday evening I happened to drive by the clinic in our area. It was practically empty. On a whim, I rallied the troops (or called Adair with my new Bluetooth) and we met up at the clinic. We were immediately told that it was open only for people at high risk. I'm told this when I'm carrying my 9 1/2 month old. Good grief. I smirked and said something a bit sarcastic under my breath and waited in line. When we were registering with the clinic (which was less than 3 mins after we arrived), I was able to talk her into giving both me and Adair the shot too! Win.

EZ was amazing. He cried for less than a minute, then moved onto more fun things like playing with my necklace and chewing my Blackberry (which I'm hoping to replace with a iPhone VERY soon!!!).

After the shots, we came home and I immediately went to dance class and rehearsal. I didn't think about the shot until 2am when I woke up to EZ crying hysterically. Then I realized that my arm was incredibly sore and I had the chills. Stupid H1N1. Adair was doing better than me, so he got up and was able to comfort and calm EZ. He also got me 2 extra-strength tylenol so I could sleep.

I felt ok today at work until about 11am. Then I felt like I was hit by a truck. I've been feeling cruddy (fever, aches, chills) ever since. Why did I do this to myself?!?!?! Obviously because I'm typing this post, I'm feeling a hint more alive. I'm planning on feeling amazing tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.
