Adios, Synagis!

During the flu/RSV season this year and last Bryce has been receiving monthly synagis shots. They're essentially a very, very expensive ($1,800/shot) immunization. We had to go through a lot of back and forth to get them covered this year by insurance since Bryce had been home a full year. But in the end the did it and he didn't get sick.

Today Bryce had his last Synagis shot - likely forever!

We saw a special pediatrician monthly for half the year for these shots so we had grown accustomed to the staff at ARC Far West's pediatric clinic. As Dr. Lingle left the room today (after bragging about how great Bryce looks) I overheard her tell the nurse that it was bittersweet.

I think, no - I know, that if Bryce understood he would disagree. He would be ecstatic not to have those awful pokes every month. I know I'll miss the sweet ladies of Dr. Lingle's office but I sure won't miss holding him down for that huge needle!


  1. Yeah for Bryce! Monthly shots are no fun but much better than the alternative.

  2. It is a good-bye indeed!! I think you're right that he won't miss them a bit. One more big step for the Bryce-anator!


  3. Check another specialist off the list. I love firing them. Congrats Bryce!!


Don't be shy, let us know you stopped in!
