Pain City


I am definitely in that town right now. I have been in bed now for 2 whole day. I hate this!! Thursday afternoon when I got my flu and pneumonia injections the nurse put both of them in the same arm. Well, Friday my arm swelled all up and the pain went under my arm!! I was in pain all day taking ibuprofen and keeping the area in cold packs. I had a very bad night and then hoping that I would wake up and all would be well this morning...ha!!

I woke up to more pain...now into my shoulder blades. I had hubby take me over to our two nurses at 7 this morning!! I can hardly get my shirt off of my shoulder it is so swollen, red and very feverish!!

My daughter gave me an injection of some anti-inflammatory. It is starting to help some but I am just not great at all today!

Just thought I would let you know so that you can put me on your prayer list...Thanks!!

Do you know that God brought YOU especially to my mind this morning during my prayer time. He is sO good! You usually are in my prayers just on habit - but I hadn't gotten to you yet when God said "pray for her" - and so I did! I hope you are feeling very better VERY soon! You've never had a bad reaction to flu shots before have you?

My knee was BAD yesterday too... musta been something in the air! I'm gonna take it a bit easy today too...

That happened to me too one year, and the second year I had the shots, now I refuse them, no more shots for me,I am sicker than a dog when I get them,I would rather get the flu outright, and guess what I never have once and its been years
I am so sorry your not feeling well, your in my prayers

I got sick from the flu shots last year, but because of Grandpa's health at the time, I was required to have one.
That arm sounds so sore. Hope you feel better soon.

Sandra said...

the arm I got my pneumonia shot in was swollen and red for a few days... now Im thankful the nurse put them in different arms... I hope you told them what happened so they don't do that to anyone else
Hope you are feeling lots better now

You've obviously had a local reaction...I'd have thought she'd have put one shot in each arm. You poor thing, I hope it settles down soon. Not nice at all.

Denise said...

Girl Friend......... I will pray! I was swimming this morning and one of the ladies that is there every day had a hugh bruise and knot on her arm....... She told me it was from the flu shot! I hate to even think about getting mine!

I pray that you are better this afternoon and will wake very refreshed and out of pain!

I have missed all of you gals and I need not stay gone so long this time!

The last time I got a flu shot I had the worst case of flu that year I had had in years. That was a few years ago. I haven't had one since and haven't had the flu since. Probably just a coincidence, but I'm "off" of flu shots.
I like you little cartoons.
Glad you're better now. Pain is no fun.
