Hi Lori—I had my 2nd Pfizer dose on Thursday, after ear surgery for. Cholesteatoma on Tuesday. This one kinda kicked my tail. Fever has been hovering around 101.5 and feel generally unwell. Hope you are able to avoid that! Cute story btw

Hi Pam, oh I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling nasty after the second shot. Can you take an Advil or Tylenol? It will help you feel better getting rid of the fever.

I was actually surprised I didn’t have a reaction this time. Apparently it’s pretty common with round 2.
In regard to my story about the shot yesterday, I’m on a FB group where we discuss stem cell transplants. So I posted my little chuckle on there too about my having a male immune system. One of my fellow transplant friends asked me how I was feeling today. She also got cells from a young man and had an easy time with the vaccine. So she was curious as to my reaction. Couldn’t resist telling her, “I took it like a man!” 😅
Hope you feel better soon! Beats getting the virus!! Lori.
