So after hearing that my friend's cousin died earlier this week in Calgary from the swine flu( she was a healthy 35 yr old mom of 2 small kids), I reconsidered my position on getting the shot and took the family down to the clinic to get immunized yesterday.
DH and I took turns standing in line outside for 4 hrs (in -15 wind chill) while the kids sat in the car. It's a shame that these clinic haven't been very organized across the contry. The one thing that I loved seeing were the police and restaurant owners stopping by to drop off free coffee's and hot chocolates for everyone standing in line. This is what I love about living in Edmonton /Canada b/c people do these random acts of kindness here all of the time:-)
