I had a routine appointment with my doctor this morning and figured we’d get the ball rolling with all these vaccinations and medications for the Honduras trip.
Okay, okay, technically, the one I got today (Tetanus) is one I’ve been needing for awhile, even living in the states, but since I HAVE to have it for Honduras, we’re counting it. It’s exciting!
Have you ever known someone to be so excited about a shot before?? And if the shot itself wasn’t exciting enough, check out the rockin’ band aid they gave me afterwards!
It’s really hard to tell because it’s so very sparkly…but that is one fantastically silver creation of a holographic band aid. All you parents will be quite happy to know that it didn’t hurt anywhere NEAR what I was thinking it would. I was imagining a bee sting or something…but it was way less than that. About on the level with an irritating tag in your shirt. The nurse said I’d be sore tomorrow, so I’ll let you know exactly how sore then. But it was seriously not bad at all.
She also wrote me a rx for the antimalaria drugs that I’ll need to start a few weeks before we go, and an rx for Cipro just in case I consume any of the water. I don’t know what scared me more…the thought of the bacteria making me sick…or having to take the Cipro (already being sick) which is quite strong and will probably also make me sick. We’re just going to be very careful and avoid both of those scenarios, k?
In other fabulous news….there are currently a few guys crawling around on our roof replacing shingles! Woot!! We’ve had the hardest time getting anyone to even come out and LOOK at the missing shingles, much less replace them. A neighbor had her doing her roof, so Chris talked to one of the guys and they are fixing them as we speak…for WAY less than I’d imagined it might be.
