Doctors Orders.

We knew what to do and how to do it.  We’re pros at getting our Covid vaccines.  Two regular shots and one booster shot have taught us well and caused no problems along the way.   So, as we went to our appointment for the second booster, we thought nothing of it.  Been there, done that. 

After injecting us for this last booster, the nurse announced we could not take Advil for any aches or pains for several days.  Now, Advil is not just any ole’ drug in our house.  It’s a critical part of our lives, especially given the sore arms we knew we’d have the next day.

We were also instructed to drink 64 ounces of water every day for the next few. That’s about 8 times my normal intake.  A daunting, if not impossible task, to be sure.

But then came the kicker. Now I was informed that I couldn’t have a mammogram for 4 weeks!!  Four whole weeks!

That was music to my ears and to those other body parts which don’t take kindly to that particular event. I didn’t question what in the world a mammogram had to do with a Covid vaccine. I didn’t care. At long last, there was an order from the doctor I was more than happy to follow.
