My Symptoms After Vaccination

MY SINOVAC JAB gave me these side effects after a couple of hours....

Hot flushes was felt, not the kind of fever I used to have.... my body just turned warmer than usual and it went off as soon as it came, nothing to be alarmed... 

The next day, I felt aches on my neck, collar bone and shoulders.... my chest was kind of congested, air flow was a bit difficult.  I was quite alarmed over the breathing which was not as normal as usual, I tried to take deep slow breaths as I thought it was due to anxiety attack again.  

After a week, I went back to my cardiologist, just a follow up visit since my hospital discharge.  He assured me that there is nothing wrong with my heart though my palpitations was a bit higher than normal in his clinic.  Who doesn't feel a bit anxious visiting the doctor?  Anyway.... he prescribed some medication for me.... 

It has been 13 days since my jab, I am still feeling not-so-normal as before yet though I can breathe normally now and my bone aches have subsided.... And to monitor myself at home, I bought a cheap-plug oximeter.... LOL...
My new toy I hold every now and then.... 
The first reading is oxygen level.... 
It should be around 90-100....
The second reading is the pulse rate.... 
Mine is always above 80 during the daytime...
And 70 plus when I really sit down and relax.... 
Before this vaccination, I never heard of this gadget...
Nowadays it is so commonly used....

  4. Yes, the doctors have been recommending to have one of these oximeters. I have been hearing that the worse your side effects are, that means the vaccine is really working. I hope you feel back to normal soon!

  5. Gosh. Stay healthy. Rest well. Only us know our own body well.

    2nd dose is even stronger. I did mine on Monday, so far okay. Get coconut juice and drink it after 2nd jab. It helps me. I dont feel anything other than sore arm and heatiness. Now it is 4th day, I am fine.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
