On Monday I took the Davey for his 18 month checkup. Both Caitlin and Davey were scheduled for their flu shots too. I wasn't sure if they would give the kids the flu shots since they both had colds. The doctor said they were fine as long as they didn't have a fever, which they didn't. I thought that was weird since I was refused my flu shot on Friday due to my cold but I trust the doctor.
Well in the future I will reschedule the appointment for the shots. Davey has never had a reaction to any shots other than being tired and sleeping more. That is not a big deal, I enjoy extra nap time. Anyway Davey was unbelievably grouchy all day Monday and Tuesday. He was way worse off than before the visit. He got his tetanus shot as well as his flu so I'm not totally sure if it was the flu shot, the tetanus shot, or the combination. I spent all day Monday and Tuesday holding Davey or listening to him whine/cry. Caitlin also seemed more cranky but it is harder to judge since she is the more moody of the two. She also was not as sick with the cold.
I just wanted to share so maybe I can spare some of you the rotten days Davey had post vaccines.
