We made arrangements for our home health nurse to give Lynn the flu shot today. I expect he will feel pretty rough tomorrow and maybe Sunday too because anytime he gets a vaccine or a change in medications or has to adjust to just about anything different, it knocks the wind out of him.
So, I hope everyone can take a flu shot this year; if not for yourself then for those you walk by who could end up in the hospital if they caught your illness. And healthcare workers….please, please, please take the shot and don’t come to work if you’re sick. I know how important staffing is but having been on the other side of the bed as the family member worried about their loved one, I had rather do with a little less attention than to have you come into his room and sneeze from a cold or other illness.
Thanks to everyone who takes prevention seriously. Those who love someone with a serious health condition appreciate you.
