Special K turns 5 today

Special K turns five today.  I wish I had in me today to compose something eloquent about what a smart and sweet kid she is.   But my colon is still too angry with me and I don't want to do a half-assed job (literally and figurately).   I went to her preschool today, aching and sore and managed not to sit on those little chairs.  I admired her reading to the class and her artwork.  I'll write more later.

Little T is also fussy today and has a very slight fever prolly due to delayed reaction from his HIB shot.  So slight that I'm going against my doctor's orders to take him to the doctor because he's taking aspirin.  BTW you should never give a child aspirin except under doctor's orders due to the risk of Reye's syndrome.  I try not to think about how this reaction to a shot given to infants doesn't bode well since the next shots are hardier and after the next one are all multiple vaccines.  Instead I hope that his body just isn't used to vaccines and he'll adjust as he has to grass and sand and many other fine things.

Happy B-day to Special K!

I hope your colon cooperates soon. (hugs)

WRT the vaccines--with a reaction like that, I'd highly recommend splitting the multiple vaccines up. It's a pain (literally), but in your son's case I suspect it would be well worth the extra effort. It might take some extra pushing on your part to get the doctor to special order the individual vaccines, but they ARE available, and I'm certain you're up to the task (or will be, after your colon cooperates!).
