Vaccinations

Tomorrow is Patrick's 8 week check up. It is also when he is supposed to get his first set of shots. I am so nervous about the vaccinations. I am considering waiting a few months before we get started on them. It is a hard place to be. I don't want anything bad to happen to him. So what do I do? Start them and risk him having a reaction, or don't start them yet and risk him getting whatever he would have been vaccinated against? I know there are people on both sides of the fence. People who absolutely will not vaccinate, and people who vaccinate against everything as quickly as possible. After much research and debating we are doing a slower, less aggressive vaccination schedule, and we are happy with this...well as happy as we can be...there is still that small risk of a negative reaction. I don't like it.

It is not easy making these decisions.

Here's hoping all goes well tomorrow. I'm so nervous. I want to cry a little
