Every year our boys get their flu shots. I know some people don’t agree with that but it’s our choice. Typically, the boys received the nasomist instead of the actual shot. It was less traumatic for them.
However, this year has brought with it new health complications that have changed our approach to flu shots.
In light of Elliott and Gavin’s recent asthma diagnosis, they can no longer receive the nasomist. They now have to get the actual shot.
Because Emmett is allergic to eggs he has to receive the vaccine at the immunologist. To make matters worse, he can only receive a small amount at a time. So he will need at least 2 injections that day. He’ll get the first one and then wait about 30 minutes and get the remaining dose.
That’s not going to be fun at all.
Elliott and Gavin are scheduled for this Thursday and I’m not sure about Emmett. However, Elliott is home sick today. His may have to be put off now.
I promised them ChicFilet after their shots so they are sort of looking forward to it now. However, come time for the appointment, they will both be singing a different tune..???
