I am so sorry for your loss but the ME results has to be a huge relief for you.
So sorry for your loss. Losing long time friends / any friends is upsetting. I had 8 die in 6 months last yr, one, my best and long time friend from covid. Have sent you a healing.
Eight?!? ---- that is terrible. So sorry to read that. You, too, must do a lot of healing.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Too many heartaches recently.
I was fast-tracked for the vaccine as soon as it became available to the public due to still being considered a cancer patient.
Brian and I are fully vaccinated, with the second shot being 5 weeks ago; only a week after my hip surgery.
We had the Pfizer vaccine. Both of us experienced some soreness at the injection site. I had joint pain for a couple days after the second injection. For me, it wasn't unexpected as I have a lot of chemo damage to my joints. It only lasted for a couple days so it wasn't bad at all.
I'm still recovering very slowly from surgery. It's been 6 1/2 weeks...seems like much longer. At my follow-up they did an ultrasound of the area and all seems to be healing well, if a bit slow. Our conversation went like this...
Surgeon: "Boy, when you do it, you really do it to the extreme. I've never seen this type of damage after a dislocation. Are you sure you didn't fall? We removed several bone fragments along with repairing muscle damage and the tendon. You're pushing PT. You need to back off a bit."
Me: "Nope, didn't fall. I was just getting dressed. And, yeah, that's me...I can't do anything half-way. If I'm gonna mess up, it's always going to be record-book worthy."
Surgeon: "You've got a good sense of humor about all this." Then after looking at her computer screen... "You were standing? I've been sitting down to put on my pants..." she frowned..."since my teens."
Me: "I can honestly say that I have always stood, and raised each leg to put my pants on... Until now."
Surgeon: "Well, you've got a lot of flexibility. But sit down while getting dressed from now on."
Me: "Not so flexible anymore..and lesson learned.

I got my second Covid vaccine shot (Moderna) earlier today. So far, okay. From what I've heard if you feel bad it's not until about 24 hours later and then it only last for about 24 hours.
Janet, so fun to find another "stand on one leg & raise the other to put on pants" girl, only I have to hold on to something with one hand. Guess that counts as doing it half-way. Can't even imagine going through what you've been through. You're one tough cookie!!
Take care of yourself - stay safe and stay well.
How are you feeling today? At least you’re fully vaccinated now! Yay!
So far the only thing bothering me is my arm. It's much sorer than last time. When I touched the site of the injection it's swollen a little and very warm. I think that's to be expected.
Thanks for asking.
