The OFM is a prime candidate for shingles illness due to his childhood chicken pox sickness. About two months ago he learned about a shingles vaccination to moderate if not stop a case of shingles from occurring. After careful reading, he decided to get vaccinated against shingles.
Here is the part this blog entry is about. Supposedly the vaccination is two shots two months apart. The first one put the OFM down for almost two full days. He could get up and take care of an emergency and fix his meals but it was not fun.
Today we had shot number two about 0930 and asked about the second shot reactions. Answer was maybe a little or none at all. WELL LET ME TELL YOU, by 1000 the OFM was reacting and to bed he went. The reaction was about 80% as bad as the first time. He got up to go to get lunch and back to bed. But about 1700 he suddenly got a whole lot better and as this is being entered at 1930 he is recovered. So the second go around was fairly intense but only lasted a few hours. That was wonderful.
Now we can concentrate on trying to have tooooo much fun tomorrow.
