Pandemonium Larry!

I am in a panic. Full on panic. This Swine Flu business is making me sick with anxiety. What the heck is a mom to do? Normally, I don't give a rats ass about the regular flu, but this???? Has me freaking the f^&* out. I don't care if I get it, I will kick it's flu-ass, but I am worried about my girl getting it. Plus, we are Flying.On.An.Airplane in a mere two weeks to So Cal. We will have to be in the dirty airports, in a stuffy plane with recycled air spewing in our faces. Sonya will want to mouth everything in her site. There is not enough Purell in the world to keep up with that one. I am totally not one of those people against vaccines. But I am a bit uneasy about this vaccine they have (which they don't have yet for her age in our city). Today on Good Morning America they were discussing how they would be looking for side effects on the first users of the vaccine. Um... no thanks. She hasn't had her flu shot yet either because our office ran out. WTF???? Are you moms out there freaking like me or am I just getting my knickers in a knot?

Jiff- You know health care- are you giving Bayley the shots????

have you gys called all the walgreens and cvs's they all have flu shots. My Dr was out but Walgreens had a ton they said so Igot my flu shot there, honestly I am the most shot phobic person, i do a delayed shot schedule and only do one shot at a time.. If they hadn't already approved the seasonal flu production, the swine strain would of just been put in that one... they are made the same way.. when i realized this, i am opting to get it for our whole family

Hey girl. Sorry, I've been down with pneumonia. :(

The swine flu is milder than the regular flu, so that is a good thing. When the shots become available, YES, I will vaccinate. Of course, I'll ask around here at work before doing so but we plan on shots all the way. Right now everyone is out of shots and they're on backorder. :(
