On that note....

So that you know that just because you got vaccinated doesn't mean you can't catch something else, the hubby is sick as a dog right now. No fever, chills, or body aches so we're pretty sure he doesn't have the flu. The doctor agrees. Why did he see the doctor? Well he txt me around 11 am to let me know he thought he may have a sinus infection. 5 minutes later I was on the phone making an appointment at our doctor's office to be seen. At 4:45. I love offices that can get you an appointment same day, it really helps in times like these.

So the verdict is sinusitis and bronchitis. Lucky boy got a steroid shot prescriptions for Robutusson with codine, prednisone, and amoxicilin. Fabulous no? I'm thinking his system is just blown from the Hepatitis B vaccine (1st week in October), regular flu vaccine (2nd week), and H1N1 (4th week). So by the time this cold virus was introduced to his system he didn't have any white blood cells left and said fuck it, have at the system. Really, can you blame it?

So now the poor man is suffering valiantly through it, doing very well too might I add. Men are normally known for tolerating illnesses very badly but he's trudging right through it. I suspect the drugs and the next 2 days off (work told him to go home and stay there) will help him tons. I am getting him all of his favorite foods to eat when sick because I know when I have a cold I eat less. I don't think that helps me to get better and I need him better. He does all the dishes and the laundry and I don't want to be doing those things myself ya know? Yeah, priorities, I have them.

Every year while in Texas, from Christmas to Valentines, I would suffer from 'cedar fever' and HAD to get a shot or else! At least your man doesn't have the flu.

Cedar fever is just an allergy to the local trees. They aren't even cedar trees though, they are an ash juniper. Freakin Texans like to change names and pretend that they are right. Ignorant imbiciles...

I never get vaccines. Not that I don't believe in 'em or anything... just lazy, I guess. I'm hoping that I'll be able to slide through the rest of fall and winter without getting sick again. I feel bad for my husband when he gets sick because I have so little patience and I'm just not a very comforting type.
