31 for 21 Challenge: Day 7
Well I would really like to hear others opinions on what they are planning to do in regards to the H1N1 vaccination? Especially those who have medically fragile little ones or have heart issues. I feel like I am between a rock and a hard place on this one. Generally I don't believe in getting the flu shot. I have never had it before and either has my daughter. However with Wysdom he brings a whole different perspective into the mix. I have already seen him in the hospital on three different occasions for a total of 3 months which in comparison to some is not the long. He had RSV when he was 2 months and he was on an iv for a week and a half.
I am totally in a state of fear either way. On one side I don't like all of the chemicals in the vaccine. I have read about the damages that it can cause. However on the other hand I don't want him to get sick and be in the hospital fighting for his life either. What is a mom to do? I would really love to hear your perspectives on all of this. I know that I am his advocate and mother and I have to ultimately choose for him, but I think only peers can truly relate to my my situation.
