“Between the age of 12 and 13 months another set of vaccinations are due”

20140228-053022 pm.jpgBetween the age of 12 and 13 months another set of vaccinations are due. P2 turns 13 months next week, therefore she had her vaccination appointment yesterday.

P2 was happy and cheeky in the waiting room. Toddling around pulling magazines off the table and making the oldies laugh and smile. Little did P2 know that she was about to be pricked three times in her legs.

This vaccination was done in three jabs; two on her left leg and one on the right. The Hib/Men C booster, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and then Pneumococcal (PCV) vaccine. P2s beautiful little smile turned very quickly into a silent scream followed by that awful scream followed by whimpers. She gave the doctor real evil eyes.

She was due a nap so fell asleep quickly in the car and slept for about an hour. By evening the poor mite had a temperature and refused to play or be put down. At 7pm P2 was fast asleep in my arms. I wanted to keep an eye on her so she went up to lay in bed with hubby until 9pm.

We gave her some calpol, changed her into pjs and put her to bed. She then slept until 6am which scared the hell out of me when I woke with a start at 5:30 wondering why I hadn’t been woken twice like normal.

Today has been quite bad, well we’ve had a day on the sofa which has been relaxing but it’s so odd to have P2 refusing to crawl or walk around. She’s had a high temperature and been asleep most of the day! Apparently it’s all normal but to reassure myself I did speak to a doctor.

As horrible as it is to see P2 this miserable and poorly, I’m very thankful that she’s been vaccinated against some deadly diseases.20140228-053040 pm.jpg
