::sick::

So, a few days after I asked if I really should keep Olivia away from crowds for the next 2 months, she got a little cold :( We didn't even take her out and a little bug still managed to come into our house and infect our baby.

It was sad to see her so stuffy, but we were very grateful
that it was nothing to be alarmed about. She was over it in about 3 days. I'm just so glad it wasn't swine flu, or regular flu, or rsv, and that she is already better!

Speaking of illness, I got my H1N1 vaccine. I was a little nervous about it since no one really knows what the side effects are, but after Olivia got that little cold I decided I was more worried about her getting sick, so I decided it would be best to get it. Especially since I am around all kinds of patients and people all day.

Our Clinic supervisor came into clinic on tuesday and announced that one of the senior students had swine flu, and gave us the option to leave and get the shot. I had been waiting to hear when the shot was available and hadn't heard a darn thing, so I was glad to get the inside info and be able to leave school to get it. Lucky I did too, supply ran out about an hour after I received it.

We all thought it was kind of funny how serious the school was about this, like it was a medical emergency or something, so we took pics to document. Also, I was elected to be the class historian so I have to take pics of everything!
