I never give the flu shot! I just laugh when they ask either myself or the children to get one. BUT, this swine flu thing has got me a little crazy. My pediatrician, who I love, and is always on my side, threw me for a loop the other day when she suggested we all get the swine flu vaccine. I walked out of the office without it. I can't make a decision just like that, but boy was that a rough day. I thought about it, called a couple girlfriends and passed on my paranoia and then prayed about it. Oh yeah, and let's not forget, pestering my husband while he was trying to eat dinner and trying to force him to make a decision he feels is my decision to make. By morning time, I decided to do what we always do, unless something makes me absolutely certain to change my mind.
And as a family, we will:
-wash hands longer (we sing the abc song twice) and more frequently.
-remember our vitamins every night.
-get to bed on time.
-not get crazy with an overpacked schedule.
-and of course, eat more veggies!
For anyone else, faced with the same decision- I feel for you!
