He had the damn flu shot.

J is sick. He has a fever and has been coughing, sneezing, and vomiting (not often) for a couple of days now.

Probably shouldn't read this next part if you're eating or have a weak stomach. You've been warned.

This afternoon, he was in the bathroom, throwing up. He was using a great deal of effort for very little result, mostly heaving, and it looked painful. He was using so much effort in fact, that his nose started to bleed. When he saw the blood dripping into the toilet, he panicked. I don't think he's ever had a bloody nose before so he didn't know what was happening. I got him calmed down and got the bleeding more or less stopped. He looked up at me then with this sad, tear-streaked face and said,

“I don't want to die yet.”

Broke my heart. Poor thing. :(
