4yo Vaccines

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

She just got her 4yo vaccines today, MMR and Dtap, plus the usual flu, since her birthday is in the fall. She got the nasal spray flu vaccine this time. She seemed to have some side effects from the vaccines. After we walked out of the doctor's office, she became lethargic and very tired and sleepy. She did eat lunch ok, but after that became tired again and wanted to lie down. It has been about 7 hours since her shots and she is still so tired and sleepy after having an afternoon nap. I am hoping she is okay. I tried calling the pediatric's office but they are closed.

I tried playing with playdough with her, but she was too tired and weak to even sit at a chair and do that. She is now lying down in front of the TV in the living room watching Daniel Tiger. I hope she shakes this by morning.

Dinner time rolled along the evening of her shots. And I finally broke down and gave her Children's Motrin because she had a fever and was feeling so bad. She downed that with some strawberries, and within 20 minutes she came down off the couch and started playing with her brother. Then she ate normally the rest of the evening (dinner and snack). And her fever was gone.

This morning she woke up feeling normal, eating and acting normal. So I guess she's recovered from the vaccines.
