Immunizations

About a week ago, I got shots at my annual doctor’s appointment. First, it went all normally; checking ears, eyes, mouth, pulse and temperature  Then my doctor, Dr. Kawase, offered a list of possible list of immunizations that kids my age would normally take. I was thinking really hard: Immunizations- what? Immunizations… immunize….. Shots!

“Shots?” I exclaimed, both surprised and anxious. I automatically tensed up, raising my shoulders. When Dr. Kawase left to have the shots ready, I asked Park Ranger what I was getting. She told me that I was getting the tetanus and meningitis shot. Ow.

30 minutes

The nurse came in with the shots prepared. She first explained to Park Ranger how she would to one shot on each arm so that if there were reactions, they could know which shot caused it. The tetanus shot started as a sharp prick in my right arm, and an even more painful poke as it was pulled out of my arm. The meningitis shot was even worse. When the needle protruded my skin, it felt excruciatingly painful, and it was like a fire touched to my arm when it was pulled out. As a result, I couldn’t move my arms because their was a bullet hole planted in each of my arms.

Gee, nurse, thanks. Now I can’t lift my arms. Yay.

As a reward for my painful endurance, I got a lollipop! I was like, Yes! but then I thought, How am I supposed to lift it to my mouth? Great.

Holiday Movies – Rise of the Guardians

 Today we went to the movies as a holiday surprise. We watched the Rise of the Guardians. It’s a great movie but personally I think it’s nothing like the previews – still a good movie though.

Basically the Guardians (Santa, Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Sand Man) have a job to protect the children and give them dreams. The villain, Boogie Man, hates being forgotten and longs to be known again. He comes back to the world and changes the children’s dreams to nightmares. The moon chooses another Guardian – Jack Frost – to help protect the children. At first, Jack Frost doesn’t want to be a Guardian but after figuring out who he is, together the Guardians stop the Boogie Man and Jack Frost accepts being a Guardian.

It sounds a bit childish but the movie is really good! My sister liked the Tooth Fairy and my favorite is the Sand Man. I hope you enjoy the movie if you see it. Merry Christmas!
