Still in shock

I wrote a very good post to update everyone but apparently it did not get saved and my computer farted. I do not have the energy to redo it. Sorry. Here is the short version .

My DD is fine. She is still upset and has asked us to leave her alone & quit talking about it. I will back off but I will not stop worrying. I'm her mom. I will worry with my last breath. So Sue me!

I've been told the funeral for Rachel is today in Jax. It looks like my DD is going but I haven't heard for certain. There is a bus taking a group of the kids so at least she won't be driving. Some of you have asked for the family name so you can add them to your prayer list. Since they have released the information to the media it w/n be speaking out of turn to tell. Her name was Rachel Futterman. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

I took my DS to get the meningitis shot today. They recommend 11-12 year olds get it. I figured with his chance of contact to college kids through his sister it would be a good idea to get it. My DD will get it as well since the meds she received Saturday were just for the immediate danger/exposure. The doctor said it is amazing how many people have called since the news broke. He said last year at this time he couldn't give them away. I know it wouldn't have helped in this situation but I have to do everything in my power to keep my kids safe. I'ts my job. They can complain all they want.

Til later...................

My thoughts & prayers are with the family. I hope that Jessica continues to do well. It really has had me thinking; "When is the last time I had any sort of immunizations?"

Big hugs!

Big Hugs Cheryl. I am glad to hear Jess is doing well and hope it continues to be that way. My thoughts are with Rachel's family and friends today in Jax. Nicole will also be getting the BM shot next month when she goes to her 11 year visit. Her dr was telling me that they have a whole list of ones they want that age group to get that even 6 months ago weren't recommended. Let me know how DS does with the shot so I know what to expect (fever, tenderness, etc). Thinking of you always... Sending our love

Don't blame you one bit. I'd had them there getting the shots too.
