We all went to the Travel Clinic for our innoculations on Monday, which was an adventure, to say the least. After a lenghty and somewhat dizzying consultation with the doctor, where we were presented with enough information to make us want to stay indoors with the shades drawn on Bowen Island, much less India, we took our turns rolling up the sleeves and taking one (3 actually) for the team. Laurel took Isaac in first, and it looked like it was all going smooth until.... HUUUUGE SCREAM.... crying..... HUUUUGE SCREAM.... crying...... HUUUUGE SCREAM.... The entire waiting room counted three needles. Miles of course, was very brave and did not even whimper. He even went so far as to say that he enjoyed it, because it felt kind of "nervy". Let's hope that this is not a harbinger of things to come... Laurel and I both got tetanus shots, and have had difficulty with our left arms for a couple of days, although it seems to be diminishing. All I know is this: I haven't spent so much money to feel so crummy since the 80s!
