I have had a week, let me tell you.
Not the 2nd vaccine shot, despite rumors to the opposite.
Sunday night I got called in at 0400 and worked until 0700.
My 2nd vaccine shot was at 0945.
Yeah, I could take a bit of a nap before I had to drive in rush hour traffic, or at least what amounted to rush hour traffic during a pandemic.
I overslept. I was going to wake up at 0830, shower and head to the main hospital.
I woke up at 0911. With a twenty minute drive.
I got up, brushed my teeth and drove down to the appointment, getting there in the nick of time.
I received my second Pfizer shot and I am very grateful that I did.
I was home by 1115.
I was back in bed by 1130 and up at 1345.
I caffeined it up and went to my normal shift.
Temperature normal, no pain, no nausea, no dizziness.
I worked my normal shift and went home.
After killing undead for twenty minutes I though it best that I go to bed so I did.
I was in bed by 0010.
My injection site had begun to ache a bit.
My pager went off at 0150.
Incarcerated ventral hernia, new doc.
Here we go.
I was at the OR until 0708.
Temperature still normal, some pain at injection site, slight dizziness that could be put to sleep deprivation.
I drove home and was in bed by 0745.
I woke up at 1130.
It confuses the cats when I am in bed after 1000.
No fever, minimal pain at injection site, no dizziness. I am tired but nothing else.
Some people at work who have been getting their second shots and suffering I am sorry.
For those still to get their second shots I have two pieces of advice.
- power of positive thinking. If you put it out to the universe that it is going to be hell you have just invited in the bad juju.
- peasant bloodline for the win!
