Like a dumbass I didn’t get a flu shot. Earlier this week I felt it coming on. Came on fast. I got in the car to go to a home improvement store and by the time I was asking for vinyl mesh (so my dog doesn’t crawl out of our gate) I felt sick. Aches, thick head, chills, cough, etc. It’s been years since I had it, but I remember. It truly sucks. Fortunatly, I knew to call my GP and left a message asking her to call in a prescription for Tami Flu. If she had made me truck cross town to be examined by her, honestly, I don’t think I could have done it. She did not ( cancel plans to change doctor). Mark picked it up for me and by the next day I felt a wee bit better.
The other issue was Rex. He is getting his annual in a couple of weeks which will include the flu mist. I called his doctor and got an appointment for him first thing in the morning for the flu vaccine.
“I want to cuddle with you mommy.”
” Baby, I want to cuddle with you too, but until you get your vaccine you need to stay away from mommy. Here, you can play with my Ipad. Wash your hands a lot”
I’m still a bit sloggy, aching, stupid in the head. But, Tami Flu arrested the symptoms considerably. I don’t care that even with insurance it cost $70. It’s worth it. Thank you modern medicine.
Now, if you haven’t already get your flu shot!
