Overdose!

I found a clinic that had the H1N1 vaccine in stock so I made appointments for William and I and took him over there this morning. I got mine and then they poked him. I was busy comforting my poor little baby and I asked when he needed to come again for the second one. The assistant said she would go check, I then heard her out in the hall talking to the nurse. The nurse asked her if she gave him 0.25ml or 0.5 ml, to which she answered 0.5ml. I immediately knew she had overdosed my kid! Yikes! I was very upset. When I got to the car I called Will's pediatrician and she said it would be ok, and that he won't need an extra shot in a month. She also said to watch him for the next 2 days because he may have a fever. Poor guy!

Good Grief! So who's going to tell the next mom that their kid can't get the shot because they ran out?

Well, he would have needed 2 anyway so he just got them in one shot....

That is crazy! I was talking to my mom today and she said she thinks Eric and I had the H1N1 flu when we were sick a couple of weeks ago. We both had horrible body aches, fever and stuffy noses which are supposed to be some of the symptoms. Glad to know that we survived it :)
