Ouchie

Poor little boy got his two month shots yesterday. :( Boy did his face get all red when he screamed bloody murder. I've never seen him so red before. It was almost cute. lol

The appointment was interesting. Our doctor was very specific in explaining all the vaccinations he was going to receive. I remember getting my vaccines as a young girl (and teen) and there was no discussion. She seemed to think we were going to argue with her about having Marshal vaccinated.

I've thought about it, but I think it's more important for him to be protected against horrible things like Polio and Whooping Cough than risk those diseases on the astronomical chance of a bad reaction. I've never had any bad reactions to vaccines and neither has hubby. And so far he seems okay, other than a little fussier than normal.

It's people who don't vaccinate their children who are helping all these horrible diseases make a come back. Jenny McCarthy needs to shut her trap about things she doesn't understand. She's an actress, not a doctor or scientist.

Then again, I'm not all that fond of all vaccines - like the flu vaccine. I did NOT want to get it, but I did because we have an infant. Plus, kids are more vulnerable this season. It didn't hurt me a bit (so far).

I wouldn't want to force people to get vaccines...I just wish the standard vaccines weren't bashed by stupid celebrities. If it weren't for vaccines we would still have Polio!

My tinfoil-hat brother-in-law goes off on the anti-vaccines rant at least once every family gathering. To hell with the evidence that it helps protect the child. His reasoning, however, is less than scientific- he believes no one who has been "medically interfered with" will get into heaven.
We tend to find things in other rooms to do when he gets rolling.

Wow, Leann...that is pretty ... um ... unscientific. That's the nicest way to put it. :) And I'm a pretty religious person. Jeesh.
