An Ounce of Prevention
This morning with some trepidation, I had my sons vaccinated against H1N1. I’ve heard that some Mommy MD Guides aren’t having their kids vaccinated, while others are. (Stay tuned to this site for more info on that soon.) But my kids have reactive airways. Their colds quickly turn to wheezing, and so I decided H1N1 presented more of a danger to them than a vaccine reaction, so I had them vaccinated.
True to their personalities, Tyler (four) tried to negotiate with the nurse before she gave him his shot, “Hey, wait let’s talk about this first…” Then he cried like she took off a finger when he got the shot.
Austin (two) said he wasn’t going to cry, and he didn’t. He just said ‘Yelp” when the shot went in! And only one tiny tear escaped from his eyes.
