I got a flu shot today. Just the regular one, since no one in Arkansas has the H1N1 vaccine yet. This was the first time EVER for me to get the flu shot. Mason gets the mist every year.
Braden has been sick twice already this school year with a flu/stomach bug type thing. That is not normal for him. Usually he gets some sort of fever around February... but nothing this early.
At the doctors office with T the other day I got him the shot. When he gets sick it seems to affect him more than the rest of us... and today at Target I sat down to get the poke.
I don't know why I did it. I just felt like I should. I never have before because it makes me nervous that we are just setting ourselves up for a super virus. I have no idea how long flu shots have been given out, why they are given out, how safe they are or what the side effects are....and in spite of all that and going against my track record... we all got poked... and I can't answer why... and I am scared to death that I made the wrong choice....
