February 22, 2021 Monday--3:30pm
Not really much for pictures this week.
Dagan and Leah went down to his cardiologists in Minneapolis and back on Wednesday for Dagan's pacemaker adjustment and checkup. All was good. :) A lot of driving--at least 4 hours each way. The boys stayed at home for the day with Uncle Aaron. Glad that is over with. Thumbs up!
I was told to try going through ND Public Health for the vaccine to get it earlier. So I filled out the form online and was okayed the next day to pick an appointment time. Leah gave me a ride over to the now defunct Gordman's Department store on Friday afternoon, dropped me off and waited in the parking lot.
It was not too busy...but steady. They had a place to stand in line with Xs on the floor to stand apart but I got to zig zag through to the front because no one was in line at the time. They had a person near the door to check you off the list before you got in line and a person to direct you to which spot was open for a shot when you got to the end of the line. My lady was number 5.
After she checked you were on her list, the shot was quick and easy. Barely felt it. Just relaxed my arm.
Then you had to go find a chair to wait for fifteen minutes to make sure you didn't have an allergic reaction. The chairs were spread out over the now empty Gordman's...that still had old signs up high on the walls--LOL!
I felt absolutely fine until around 11pm-12am when the hard lump appeared (or I finally noticed it--lol!) in my shoulder that hurt if you touched it, but not much otherwise. Some redness appeared where I got the shot by Saturday morning and I've had a headache ever since...but it's not quite as bad today. My sinuses ran like a water faucet all weekend, but that seems to be leaving me, too. I ran a very low temp off and on all weekend (99 to 99.4) and was noticeably achier than usual...but that may leaving now, too. More tired than usual. Been sleeping and napping all weekend.
I have a compromised immune system so I was expecting my body might have to work extra hard to make antibodies, so I figure this really hasn't been that bad at all. I'd hate to think of what it would be like to get covid. I've basically been in my pajamas for three days--LOL! But I guess I am working hard on making those antibodies...so all is well. I go back in a month for the second Moderna shot. I feel very lucky to have gotten my first one and look forward to going back. These shots will help us all to eventually get back to normal...or our new normal, anyways. ;)
That's it from here. I'm about due for a little nap again. Actually happy to have this sore arm--LOL! Till next week...
