kt was home sick today - turns out that she was having a reaction to the booster shots she rec'd Monday afternoon. Of course, things get worse after pediatricians office closes for the day so I call urgent care because of the swelling on her arm plus the rash that broke out on her chest & back. Urgent care refused to see kt because of her psychiatric hx. (That's being reported as this was a medical concern.) Ended up in ER. Not only is kt having an allergic reaction to the vaccine, she also has cellulitis at the shot site. Fine - we're treated & discharged. Head over to the pharmacy. kt opens the van door & the darned thing won't shut. husband & security guard plus a police officer are working on the thing while I get kt's prescriptions filled. It's decided after a concerted effort to drive the van home with the door open...husband climbs into the back seat. Police officer offers to escort us home by back roads. husband leans over & tries the door one more time - yup, you guessed it..the door closed. Will only close from the inside. Who knew? Not the 4 competent adults standing about in the snow determined to shut that door. We thanked all who helped & headed home to find out my garage door opener wouldn't work. I give - parked on the street damning my van & hoping some fool steals it tonight. kt is sleeping - looks like a little angel. I'm about to head off to bed. This day is done - I'm fried.
