Update: Yellow Fever Vaccine

KP1985 posted:
Just a little update for anyone who has been following my drama.

We went to get my husband's Yellow Fever and both of our Typhoid Fever vaccines today. I was nervous because we still weren't totally clear on whether or not I HAD To get the yellow fever vaccine (there are some risks to the baby).

We got in the room and the nurse giving our shots was totally ready for us with all kinds of information on traveling to Uganda. She was so great. As soon as we told her I was pregnant she said, "Oh, I'll just stamp your immunization record with a waiver. You don't have to get the yellow fever vaccine." (!!!!!!)

Praise the LORD! We're going to Uganda to learn more about being missionaries there and I GET TO GO WITH MY HUSBAND! This is just a great day. Can you tell I'm excited?

Also, we learned that our sponsored child (in Haiti) is alive and well, although his house was damaged in the earthquake. We are so encouraged by all this!

Thanks for reading. I just had to share.

KP: wife to one. Mom to 4 - m/c (2007), DS (2 yrs), DD (1yr), LO (EED: late September 2010)

We leave April 1st. (Ah!) I'm so excited, I really feel like it's going to happen now.

I wish we could stop off in Haiti on our way just to check on Dunel.

Thanks! I'll be sure and update. I'm sure there will be a lot to tell. I have one more OB appointment before I go, and I think they'll schedule me again for pretty soon after I get back. Just to err on the side of caution. I'm excited, but a little nervous.
