You Guys---I am crackin' UP!!!


Okay----I wish I had a dime for every person who asked me about that dang DPT shot in my previous post---it is histarical---I am beginning to think we folk here in Minnesota are the only people that do the Diptheria (never heard of anyone ever getting that) Pertussis (what? Somethin about wooping cough or the croop) and Tetanus (lock jaw from blood infection---if ya asked Joe---he probably wouldn't mind if I got LOCK JAW) that is THE shot---here in this lovely state---we are required to get a Tetanus shot every 10 years----I am just crackin up that there were so many people who asked me 'what in the HELL are you talkin about girl?'----Many said DPT???? That is for the youngins----nope----I am in full reciept of it and still have the extremely sore and tired arm to boot----I am moving to a new state before my next 10 years----of this I know!

OMG----I sure hope mine isn't due anytime soon....enough is enough..I can remember the only thing I saw a doctor for was to have a baby, but now live in the dang doctors office...When I worked for the State of Minnesota we got all kinds of shots....My arms were sore all the time....Just think Renee, the next 10 years will go by so fast....

LMAO..Okay, I wondered if that was it. Yes, I get those, but unfortunately, I am usually in an accident of somesort and in the emergency room when I get it. So, I never have had it in a routine exam. I have been lucky enough not to have had an accident since 1999...so mine should be up soon! Bumber

Susie----I hear ya girlie---I remember the days when I worked in the hospital---there was always a new shot to get---almost trendy!!! LOL

Yep Jen---I am glad to hear that I am NOT going crazy!!! You better start knockin on wood there Missy!!! with any luck you WILL be able to have that lovely shot without a calamity surrounding it!!! Perhaps some day --heeheehee

Renee, the doctors would like for the kids to get one every 10 years, and I'm like Jenny... I only get one when I HAVE to get one. You know, anyone who works with rusty items like we do should really get a tetanus shot every ten years :)

That's what I'm talkin about---but heck---I like to live on the edge of DANGER wherever I am at! Rusty stuff--- ahhhh pishawwwwww!

Well I went in today for my preop exam and the doctor said for me to wait on the LPN before I left to get my blood work and xrays done...What a sneak she is...That LPN came in with a armful of needles and started sticking me...Well I must be up to date on all my shots for the rest of my life...
Love
Susie

OMGOSH Susie----Seeeeee---that's what I'm talkin about! DANG!!!

Cookie said...

ok... in these parts, they only gave the Diptheria shots to kids - as adults, we get tetanus but it is a smaller shot that doesnt hurt so bad hahaha

They didnt try to give it to you in your butt, did they?

BirchBerry Farms said...

NOPE Cookie------however---I think they had that 'give it to her in the butt' look in their eye----I probably could of outrun them---but I was in my skivees---so ya---no! Good thing too---as I am sure that would have been a write up in the paper for SURE!!!

Amber said...

I know, I know..you were just WAITING for me to weigh in on this whole shot business...and well, alls I gots to say is you need to stop being such a baby!

BirchBerry Farms said...

Oh Amb---my dear sweet niece---you know me---I have yet to let that whole shot ordeal go---I may need to tell you that I am now having to seek out therapy because of it---GREAT---just GREAT! Who has that sort of time??? HMMMM?

Amber said...

ya know..therapy might not be such a bad idea...alls I'm saying is I'm just saying haha! although I'm a fine one to talk because I'm pretty much the queen of nothing letting things go...remember that one time, at the parade when you...hahaha

BirchBerry Farms said...

You bet I do Amb---and even though you could probably 'take' me now---I am not afraid to do it again---oh---that ain't gonna work---I gave that up---hmmmm---dang!
