Doing Shots

The first day of the rest of our lives was today with it being Yakira's first day at home.

Was a day interrupted with the rhythms of feeding and sleeping. She is a good girl and so far, B"H, hardly cries at all.

Took her on her first outing today with a trip to Tipat Halav. First assignment was to strap her and her seat into the taxi. The bemused taxi driver who didn't have a seat belt around himself was wondering what all the fuss was about.

The lady at Tipat Halav was lovely and talked us through everything. We then weighed her to see if she had put on weight since leaving hospital. Yakira must have felt comfortable because she marked her territory by peeing all over the floor. You go girl!

There is a series of vaccinations we have to give her and did the first one today. A Hepatitis B shot to the thigh. Mrs Co.Il was in tears and I couldn't bear to look as the needle descended into her thin flesh. To her credit she was a real trooper and only cried for about 20 seconds before returning to her permanent chilled state.

Being that relaxed about needles is one thing which definitely doesn't come from my side of the family.

Next shot.....give her medinol a half hour before......the first shot was at 1 month old...cookie screamed in pain (headache?) all day, it was awful. At two months, i gave the medinol before and a bit after.....she cried a bit, but was drowsy all day.
