The time came around this year for the flu shot and I thought long and hard about getting it for Luke, but decided not to. He was getting so many vaccines, that I really didn’t want to get him 2 more shots. I even discussed my concerns with the doctor and we agreed that he is such a healthy baby that he should be fine without it.
We were WRONG!
We’ve typically never gotten flu shots in our family, but we will from now own! And by the way- what happened to my very healthy baby?
Valentine’s night Luke started running a fever and it got up to 105! He really scared us. We worked through the weekend to get his fever down and then I started feeling awful. By Sunday, Luke had pinkeye and was still feeling icky, so we called the Doctor and he said to come in on Monday. So, last Monday Luke was diagnosed with the flu and pinkeye (yes, on top of his strep throat). Then Tuesday I was diagnosed with the flu. For the record- if you’ve never had the flu- it’s horrible!! The full blown flu put me in bed for about 7-8 days. Luke is feeling better, but not quite well, so to the doctor we went again! He has an ear infection and had to have an antibiotic shot today. The doctor said this is a secondary infection and is not contagious, so hopefully we can head to school tomorrow.
I won’t post any sick pictures, since Luke looks so pitiful. I will, however show you Daniel’s new favorite products:
He has been so funny! Anytime he would accidently touch me or Luke he would run and wash his hands. If he wanted to sit in a seat where I had sat, he would run and get the Lysol. And Dan bought a pack of Clorox wipes and Daniel has wiped down the house with them! He has become quite the little germaphobe, and so far it has worked in his favor!
Is it spring yet?!?!?!?!?
