Oh yes @Day-by-Day , I probably will remember that hug for a long time. It was nice, calmed me down, and probably calmed down the whole room actually, as everyone was watching.
I guess that when my daughter returned the second time that day, the receptionist immediately contacted her medical assistant so my daughter could get her shot. The first time the answer was “Oh, you don’t have an appointment, and you need to sign this form.” Perhaps that set off the anger, I don’t know. But the second time (well third counting Thursday), she got seen by the medical team. I still have no right to talk to them (well, for them to respond to me) but the medical assistant will accept calls from me and take information now.
I now can guess why my daughter was arrested downtown last month: a scene such as went on in the waiting room was probably unfolding for some time in front of that business. I am thankful for the way everything unfolded up to and after her arrest, as without it, she wouldn’t be medicated and doing OK today.
But that hug in the waiting room still makes me smile.
