    Bet you never knew the risks we teachers have to run. There is a colony of Leisler's bats in the school where I work and this morning there was one flying around the classroom. I have handled them before and thought their jaw muscles too weak to penetrate the skin with a bite. I was wrong. Tried to evict my little flying rodent and got bitten.

    The result? A week's worth of Ampicillin and a month of rabies shots. I howled on my husband's shoulder for ages earlier, convinced that I'd killed our baby...but I haven't, apparently the rabies vaccine is a dead vaccine and won't harm either me or baby...and in the circumstances it was safer for me to get the vaccine...


    It's been a long, long day. Hope the little guy inside is sleeping, because I will be soon.

    Night guys.

    Stay away from bats...

    Hey Bob...all here is well.

    I haven't had any adverse side effects from my first shot, and baby seems to be fine. Making me darn hungry, these days...just ate dinner and still starving.

    Apart from a strange urge, to sleep upside down, things seem ok....

    just kidding....
