Jabs!/ vacunas

Right, I absolutely hate needles…. A fear I have had ever since I can remember. I just turn into another person, shake, cry and have no control over myself. People have had to hold me down before to give me an injection!

Yo odio las agujas….es un miedo que he tenido siempre. Me convierto en otra persona cuando las veo, tiemblo, lloro y no mantengo el control. ¡En el pasado me han tenido que sujetar para pincharme!

So…. Taking him to have his first jabs was a scary moment for me. I didn’t sleep well the night before and knew that I would be asked to hold him tight whilst they gave him two jabs the next day. One in each thigh. I felt okay until we reached the surgery and then I felt faint and sick. Just the thought of it made me dizzy and we had to wait about half an hour as they were running late so it was even worse and gave me time to work myself up. 

Así que llevarle a vacunarle por primera vez me daba miedo. No dormí bien la noche anterior y sabía que iba a tener que sujetarle durante las vacunas del día siguiente. Una en cada muslo. Me encontré bien barda que llegamos al medico y entonces estaba mareada. Solo pensar en ello me daba nauseas y encima tuvimos que esperar una media hora porque iban con retraso y me pide más nerviosa aún. 


In we went and the nurse is lovely, unlike the pediatrician but that’s a story for another post. Anyway…she explained what to do and when the first needle went in he cried a little but was more in shock ask I was just concentrating on holding him still and not looking at the needle.

Entramos y la enfermera era muy simpática, no como el pediatra pero eso es otra historia para otro día. Bueno…me explico cómo sujetarlo y cuando le pido la primera vacuna lloró un poco pero estaba en shock y yo solo concentraba en mantenerlo quieto sin mirar la aguja. 

Well the second jab he was more ready for and this time he totally screamed the place down and went redder than tomato ketchup! Honest I’ve not seen anything like it. I quickly picked him up and hugged him until he calmed down.

Al ponerle la segunda él ya estaba más preparada y empezó a chillar y se pusó más rojo que ketchup. De verdad nunca he visto algo así. Le cojí rápidamente hasta que se calmó. 


It was the first ever time I actually wished the needle was going into me instead of him, and that’s saying something coming from me! 😂

Era la primera vez en mi vida que había deseado que me pusieron la aguja a mí en vez de a él, y eso es decir algo.😂
