Today didn't go quite as I expected. After having many good days in a row, I woke up on the wrong side of the recliner this morning. At my check-up yesterday I got the pneumonia vaccine, because going forward as an open-heart patient I will now be in the vulnerable category. Aside from turning into bed at an early hour last night, I was feeling pretty good. I woke up to an extremely sore arm from the shot site, so sore that I can't lift it above my head and it was accompanied by flu like symptoms.
So I didn't do much today. Maggie came to spend the day with me. I managed to get a shower in but it left me so exhausted that I decided to not go to my first day of cardiac rehab.Hopefully the chills and aches will pass by tomorrow so I can muster up some energy for rehab on Friday.
The good thing is that I don't need the vaccine again until I'm 65.
