'Tis the season

It's the season for sickness. Gabriel and I have had our flu shots. Gabe does not qualify for his shot to be covered through our insurance, so he is getting his when his work does them.
I am worried about H1N1. We have had several of our kids out with it already. Our kids come to school no matter what because they get meals and sometimes it is just plain safer than their environment at home. My ob wants me to get the vaccine for H1N1 as soon as they get in their office.
We just found out that Gabriel qualifies and our insurance will cover the synagis shot for another year. This is against a shot against Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV. It is a nasty sickness from what I hear. I would rather be safe than sorry where Gabriel is concerned. I am so excited that he qualifies for the shot! This does mean that his heart is of enough concern to allow Gabriel to get the shot. I am not going to get too worked up. He has an appointment with his cardiologist at the end of the month. We will see how he is doing at that point in time.

I am looking forward to the Buddy Walk this weekend!!!
