Yesterday we finally got Elise her flu shot. There's been some sort of nasty bug going around (people have told me it is actually the flu), so I've been nervous to take Elise to big gatherings, or places with lots of kids. Yeah, I know... I can't protect her from everything, but I've been hearing some horror stories of kiddos with D getting sick and ending up in the ER lately. Plus, I have Mattias to think about too.
I thought she'd do well with the shot, but she totally freaked. Then her BG spiked up to the 300s right afterwards (I'm thinking adrenaline... anyone else experience this?), only to come crashing down a few hours later. All I can say is thank goodness for Eileen!
I'm always hesitant to get the flu vaccine every year, but think it's better to err on the side of caution. Just as long as they don't make me get one!
