Day 327 – 02/05/2021

Yesterday turned interesting before it was all over – we’d put our names on the list at our pharmacy for vaccinations, and at 4:30 they called to say a few people didn’t show up and would we like to come get our shots, as they had to be used. Oh, YES WE WOULD, so we put on shoes and went out there, and SHAZAM, the thing we’ve wondered about, waited for, thought might be a figment of our imaginations, is underway. Yay! I mean, I’m a homebody, but DAMN, there was a place or two I liked to go!

The FIRST thing is to wait out my reaction to the shot – chills, sweats, body aches, and nausea. I feel just like I did every day I was not sick with COVID according to the swab test. Pretty sure that means the vaccine is working so my body’s fighting it, and I may also have gained some antibodies, which despise COVID. They’ll duke it out for a couple of days and we’ll all go on, I’m just glad to be halfway through the process already. Went back to bed at 8:30 this morning, covered up my head, and slept for three more hours. No improvement yet, but at least I know what’s going on.

Tried to eat Lipton Noodle Soup for lunch, but ended up back in bed for another four hours of sleep – out cold. And now I actually do feel better – nuked those noodles and put ’em in my belly! That’s ONE way to get to the end of a day.

Annnnd feeling awful again, but it will likely all be a memory by tomorrow and we’ll stand by for the next thing…

    So glad to know that you and Kim got your first of the two covid vaccines. I also had the first of two and we’ll get my second on February 24th. I had no side effects and look forward to the next one. After that 2 weeks from now I will be getting my second shingles vaccine. I was able to donate blood before my first covid vaccine so glad to be a little bit of service anyway. So sorry that you were so sick and I hope and pray you’re feeling much much better. I bought a new car a while back, a 20/20 Chevy Impala. A new car with nowhere to go LOL. I look forward to the day I can see my friends in Lawrence. Super bowl game was disappointing, but life can be like that. Striving to see the glass as half full instead of half empty. You and Kim take good care of yourself and each other. All the best Karen

    I am so glad you guys got your first shot!! And I hope feel all better soon, but you’re right, a reaction such as you’re experiencing is a good sign.

      A percentage of people are feeling this way after their SECOND shot, because they’ve had time to develop antibodies from the first one that try to fight off the second one. So the anti’s I’ve accumulated from having had COVID once and possibly twice are fighting this shot with all they’ve got. Good luck to ’em!
