So I've been away from the clinic/doctor for over a week now and I'm still doing very well. Mom and I are at home in VA for the time being since Michael is in California for a conference then he will go back to Indiana for about a week for another conference and to get some things done at Purdue. (Don't feel too sorry for him, the conference center in CA is on the coast about 10 minutes from Pebble Beach.) Grandma is sick (congested) and dad is in Myrtle Beach on a golf trip so it is just mom and I.
I'm having to stay at home pretty much all the time now since it is flu season and there is the additional threat of H1N1. Because of my weakened immune system I cannot have vaccines yet. I also cannot be around anyone who has had a live vaccine for 1-2 weeks (the H1N1 nasal myst is a live vaccine). Don't take this to mean the nasal vaccine isn't safe - we actually use a lot of live vaccines such Polio, the measles portion of the MMR, and the chicken pox vaccine. The doctors at Duke encourage anyone who has access to it to get it.
Also today is grandma's birthday (although she says it is just any other day) so I wish her Happy Birthday!
