this morning, early, I went across to the drugstore in Cityplace and finally got my flu shot…

I’ve been trying to get over ever since it was available… besides hopefully protecting me, it might save someone else who I come into contact with who might have a compromised immune system…

I always think of my dad when he was in hospital toward the end of his life… family and friends didn’t want to visit him if they had the sniffles… eventually we decided that if someone was going to make him sicker, it might as well be one of us, rather than a hospital staff person… it was more important to spend what little time we had with him…

only waited a short time for the shot and then had to wait the obligatory few minutes afterwards to be sure I wasn’t having any reaction…

so far I haven’t experienced any side effects…

guess we’ll see how it is in the morning;-)…
