The Joys of Swine Flu

26 Oct

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s aero porcine! I mean, when pigs fly! I mean: SWINE FLU!!

Of course it has hit my youngest: my 9 year old immuno-challenged cardiac child. It had to be her. And it hit the very day she got a regular flu shot. (BTW, does anyone else find it odd that the h1n1 vaccine is only available at government free clinics, and not private practices?) I had an appt 2 weeks ago to get my little one vaccinated for h1n1, but it was canceled by my pediatrician when the vaccines didn’t arrive.

Meanwhile, the little one has had fevers as high as 105. She also has been wheezing and basically keeping me up all night. Ah, the joys of motherhood!
