Doctor Appointment and Flu Jab

Just got home after getting off work, and going to the doctor's appointment.

I got to the doctor's office about 10 minutes late for my 1:20 pm appointment, and had to wait about 15 minutes longer for the check-up. He checked my lungs, did the lung thumping test (don't know what they call that one), and checked my throat and ears. He told me that my lungs are relatively clear, that my throat is somewhat irritated, and that my ears were clear. He said that I'm not over the infection in my chest and lungs, as the coughing can last for three months afterwards, but that I should keep an eye on things.

Then he surprised me by saying that I should have the flu shot right then and there. While all diabetics are recommended to have the flu shot for preventative and easing of symptoms purposes, the doctor told me that there's a particularly bad strain going around right now, and that I should have it immediately. He called the nurse in, and after sorting out the paperwork, I had the flu shot. She really had a great touch with the needle, and my shot of 0.5 ml of the vaccine was painless.

Long story short, I left the doctor's office, came home and am making lunch while I type this LJ post. My arm is somewhat irritated and hurting after the flu injection ("the jab" as it always got called at home when I was younger), but otherwise I'm all right.

Time for lunch.

    I'm digging the early fall temperatures. I know we've got a heatwave or two to go still but this is a nice start to the month.

    I just can't go to a big event yet. I'd be so stressed that I wouldn't have fun.

    People are determined to say that Covid is over or that we all just have to live with it and no one understands what…

    hehe It's the second book in the series about Zoey, but to be honest, I found the humour in this second book a bit too much for my taste. That said, absolutely crazy stuff happens in this one (not…

    Well, at GenCon they're checking peoples' vaccination status and actually administering vax doses (I guess Indiana Health or some such?) and people are wearing vax bracelets showing their condition…

    Of course you do! :) Heck, *I* want one! :)

    I really do want to run Vaesen - Nordic Horror Roleplaying. The Friday night group will play the game, but on Sundays, I don't know how to convince…
