Got my two flu shots today in the Sault. I got a nice nurse who explained that my arm would hurt after the shots - the H1N1 more so than the regular flu shot. I got the H1N1 in my left arm and the regular one in my right arm. I have two band aids on my arms. And I must say that right now, at 7:30pm, my left arm hurts more than my right arm. They both hurt. I guess I will have to sleep on my back. I usually sleep on my side, right or left, it doesn't matter - I usually end up equally on each side - but not tonite. I didn't even do my exercises tonite. Oh well, I should wait until they no longer are sore. I commented that when you see a segment on TV of the shots being given, sometimes they just jab the needle into the arm - usually of a poor little kid who is crying. My nurse was very gentle and explained what she was going to do before she did it. I am protected now - from what I don't know. How do you know if you even have the H1N1? They don't want to see you in any clinic if you are sick and they don't test you for it even if you exhibit all the symptoms. Up here it is rare that I get sick - I have to be exposed to germs and I don't think they can survive in this cold. But we will be heading down to Windsor shortly for the holidays so I am good to go.

See Ya By
