Good Morning, Loungettes!Happy Monday Monkey Day! Happy Martin Luther King Day!I forgot to turn the alarm off, so here I am up at the usual time for work rather than sleeping in. Oh well, I can always take a nap later if I want to, right? Sadie was ready for breakfast judging from her nudges that started as soon as the alarm went off. Day 3 after vaccination, shot site is pink, the swelling has gone away, and the area is tender if I poke at it. I did have a couple hours of feeling generally yucky yesterday, no fever or chills, not truly achy, but kind of "coming down with something"ish. Treated myself to a cup of white peony tea and a nap, and it all went away.
The Maine CDC Director has reallocated another several hundred doses of vaccines from Walgreens and a private pharmacy to hospitals for immediate distribution. I can't believe these drug stores have signed up with the feds to administer these doses to nursing home residents and staff are getting thousands of doses, but don't have any plans in place to do the immunizations! This is the second time MaineCDC has moved doses cuz they pharmacies could not say when the shots would be delivered to the nursing homes. The nursing homes the pharmacies are set up with are starting to ask questions and push for dates/times or are finding other ways to get the vaccine done.
Goldie--I like researching medical stuff, especially when it directly affects me! Yes, I did order those drinks for delivery. No stores near me. I hope the water leak isn't going to be too big a thing to fix come warmer weather.
Librarian--Holy Schmoly, what a cluster f indeed, getting that appointment set up! It's funny what some people can and can't do, technology-wise.
Karen--I think you may be right about docs not wanting to put things in writing without proof. I'm pretty sure you are right about the masking and distancing going on for some time even after vaccination. No vaccine is 100% effective, we don't know how long the vaccine protection lasts yet, the virus mutation rate and other variables will have an effect. The extreme dependency on computer registration in some places worries me, our older folks are much less likely to have home computer access or the skills to register that way. Not fun waking up at 4 ayem and not being able to get back to sleep!
Minus--Yup, I don't get any shots or blood pressures or Ivs in my arms. I wore a pair of shorts under my pants that day cuz I knew there wouldn't be much privacy. If you are getting your shot in a hospital it shouldn't be too much trouble to get it done in your thigh, nurses do that all the time. The magic words are "Post mastectomy lymphedema precautions."The only person who even batted an eye about it was the person transcribing the info from the paper form into the computer. She wasn't a nurse, and asked what "LAT" meant (Left anterior thigh).
Welcome, SuQu31!Thanks for sharing that recipe, I can see where it's so popular! Pull up a bar stool and tell us about yourself.
Morning, Illi, Celia!
Chi--Hoo Boy, it sounds like Chicago is having a bit of a struggle getting set up to vaccinate! Love the "call first" with no number given. And goodness, what a struggle with the wine bottle! And all over a biege table cloth? Yikes! I hope the product and a good washing will finish the job and save the table cloth. I think a "You're Doing it All Wrong," YouTube channel would be a riot, and very useful!
