Those two shots (flu and pneumonia) yesterday had me swearing this morning that I’d never take another flu or pneumonia shot. I felt so bad. Vince felt bad too and he had only the flu shot so I can’t say which one made me feel worse but about noon, I told myself “I am never getting another flu or pneumonia shot!” I went to bed and slept about three hours. I woke up with a fever and my right arm (pneumonia) was killing me. I read all the data that came with the shot and didn’t see anywhere that it said I could or could not take an aspirin so I called the pharmacist and he said it was fine.
I took two aspirins and within about 20 minutes, I felt totally fine. Bayer aspirin really does solve just about every problem I ever have.
Now that I’m feeling better (even my right arm isn’t hurting!) I will get the shots again because I remember how sick I was the one time I did have the flu and being a part of Addie’s life and having lunch with her at school, I feel like the pneumonia shot was a good thing too.
But . . I am a wimp.
Here’s something funny – I was video chatting with Addie last night and I told her . . you’re not going to believe what happened to me today . . and I told her I got two shots. She wanted to know what kind of band-aids I got. I told her “I didn’t get band-aids! I asked for them and he said . . you don’t need them!” She said “You can’t get a shot without getting a band-aid!” and she was not believing I had gotten a shot so I had to turn my arm so she could see the injection site.
I’m betting she has thought about that several times today. How is it possible to get a shot and not get a cute band-aid! Being an adult is so unfair sometimes! 🙂
