She'll Have A Story To Tell

Mila has a scar on her left shoulder where she received a vaccination at birth. I read after we left the hospital that bump I had been seeing on my daughter’s shoulder would forever be there as the bump/scar is an indication of an effective vaccination. I was floored to say the least; I’d never heard of anyone else scaring due to a vaccination. Her father and I recently found out that we’d never known of such a thing because that particular vaccination is not given in the US. The vaccination she received is the BCG/Tuberculosis vaccine. A nurse explained that they give the vaccination here, and not in the US, because this country is still developing and is a hodgepodge of several nationalities and cultures. Her father and I are now able to laugh regarding the scar believing that it, along with several other experiences, will just make her stories even the more interesting.
