Bah Humbug!

On Thursday I had to go to the doctor for a stupid physical. YAY nothing's wrong! they put a rush order on the lab work so I found out 15 minutes later. YAY! But then, the question of the tetanus shot came up..."uh...let's see...we were going to Albuquerque for a band trip...and I had to get it right after that trip because I was turning 15 and that's when I needed the shot...and now I'm...25...damn." so the tetanus shot it is. The shot itself didn't hurt. by that night I was in pain. I woke up at least 4 times because I'd hit my arm, rolled over on it, or just tried to move it. Friday day I couldn't lift my arm at more than a 15 degree angle without seeing stars...That's when I started taking the pain meds. ThenI got the reaction to the vaccine where it feels like you have the flu but not--so I was nauseous, chills (so I was wearing sweatpants, a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, and was still under a blanket...and this was AFTER I turned the heat up to 72), achy, low-grade fever and dead tired. I slept in the same outfit as described above and woke up once to take more pain meds...Saturday's been better...but then I've been on a constant Advil high all day, and, since Shawn's starting to get some sore throat type sickness, he hasn't complained about me turning the temp up inside the house.

In other stuff, we went to Shawn's work group's holiday party on Thursday night. There were conversations about Linux, the delicious soup, and a very in-depth conversation about Transformers...I don't know if I should be impressed, or very, very scared.

I hope you're feeling better. Still, had to be better than lockjaw; huh?
