swine flu vaccination

Lilah got her H1N1 flu shot today, part 1 of 2. She did great, not even a wimper. Honestly, I've debated this over and over, but I'm not willing to risk anything happening to our little Lilah. And this Christmas we are travelling overseas. In fact Lilah and I are staying in Ireland for 6 weeks - very exciting! But the thought of being on a plane and through a few airports makes me a little wary, which led to the decision.



  1. Kerry got shots today, too, DPT and Polio as part of her catch up schedule. I work in a pediatric office and we ran out of our H1N1 vaccines 2 days after we got them, so she didn't get that today. How exciting that you get to spend Christmas with family in Ireland! I'm envious...we really hope to go back someday soon. I can't wait to see pictures!.

  2. Lilah had her second shot yesterday. She cries before we even get in there, but she seems to sense anything doctor or nurse related and is fearful. It must stem from her past and many appointments. She cries when I go to the doctor or for shots too! Oh well, she is caught up with needles for awhile! And the stickers and princess bandaids don't hurt.
