A couple of days ago, I got a COVID vaccine shot. It was the Johnson & Johnson one shot and you’re done version.
Today, I’m sick as a dog.
How long will this last?
Some people have said 12 hours (we are long past 12 hours).
Others have said 24 hours (we are long past 24 hours).
I passed the 48 hour rule wondering if I made a huge mistake by getting the vaccine shot in the first place.
My history with shots has not been all that good. In fact, I’ve not had a flu shot in close to 30 years because the last time I had a flu shot I ended up at the ER with pneumonia.
My sibling says I’m “fragile.” I say this is just how God made me.
So, today I’m going to try and stay awake until a nap is needed. Maybe I’m over the hump; maybe not. Time will tell.

Oh man. And I am due …
Be brave, Rusty, and be prepared to stay in bed for at least a day. I really didn’t want to take the shot, but my cardiologist (who saw far too many people die from COVID) encouraged me to take it knowing there could be side effects.
