I had a flu shot yesterday at the pharmacy and decided to get the pneumonia vaccine as well. They were offering it and since I'm very prone to pneumonia and was told I should get one, I went ahead. Big mistake.
I knew the side effects could be pretty bad, but this is ridiculous. I've had a fever of over 100 for about 24 hours (it does go down with Tylenol fortunately) and just a general unwell feeling, like I'm getting a bad cold. And my arm... oh, it's a mess! The spot where I had the injection has a nice red, hot bump. It's really sore, but I can finally lift it today.
I'm just really surprised because I've never had a problem with vaccines before. I'm hoping by tomorrow I'm feeling a whole lot better.
In other news, I decided not to ween Love Bug. I go see the dentist next week or the week after and I'll talk to him about options then. I don't want to ween her and I don't think either of us are ready, so I see no reason to do so. Hopefully, if I need surgery, it will be easy.
