    Hi to everyone. I am sorry I have been gone. I have been VERY ill. :sick: cold symptoms, fever, headache, and this strange itching and swelling on my right leg. It is twice the size of my left leg and had several large scabs. I am doing everything I can not to scratch.

    I will be seeing a doctor tomorrow. Over the phone they told me it was most side effects of the flu shot??? :sick: ANd to go ahead and use bactroban on the leg scabs. But it is not getting better.

    Any good thoughts or prayers are muchly appreciated!

    Gosh, I've never heard of side effects like that before. You poor thing.

    I never get the shot. I'd rather take my chances. I usually make it through until Feb., which is fine, because the flu shots only include protection for viruses that are recent, and by the time the end of winter rolls around, they have all mutated and the shots aren't good any more.

    If you get a shot, it most likely won't work for the late winter, early spring flues.

    Anyway, I hope you feel much better and that you have success at the dr's office.

    Like Terry, I'd rather take my chances with the flu. bleh Besides, the darn shot only protects you from the strain they believe is going to be more popular. It does not protect you from all the viruses out there. So why bother?

    Saying prayers that whatever it is, it passes quickly.
