So far so good. It\’s been 7 hours. I did take a nap today – was feeling sleepy even after a really good night\’s rest. The husband is fine, too. He did say he woke up last night sweating but that was it. He\’s back today doing heavy-duty gardening; cutting down branches and pulling weeds.
For me, the anticipation is worse than the actual shot. Well, I might be speaking too soon. I still have tonight to get through.
I always like to think I can manage it by just refusing to have any reaction – a game I used to play from when I was a kid. I thought I could just will myself NOT to get sick. Like Pops always said,
\”I\’m too mean and ornery to get sick.\”
That worked for 94 years.
I don\’t like being sick – I\’d rather give birth to 10 lb twins while having a knee replacement than have nausea and flu-like symptoms. I am a big baby when I get that, I admit it.
I might \”milk\” this for today and do some take-out.
Stay tuned for t o m o r r o w.
