Doctors Suck...

Or at least their inexperienced lab technicians. Maggie had her 6 month check-up. She was due for 3 shots. Mom was tempted to delay them because she (mom) had a cold but Maggie was fine. Rather than put Maggie through the torture of having to come back for more shots she decided to get them over with today. You could tell the lab tech was a newbie - she lacked confidence. The first two shots went in fine. Maggie screamed so loud people on other floors could hear her. Then, on the third shot the needle broke off in her leg! The vaccine spilled everywhere. Then, the tech said they were all out of vaccine in the office so she would have to go the pharmacy 4 floors down to get more. Mom already agonizes over vaccines in the first place and then to have this happen...it ain't easy being a parent. Hopefully Maggie won't have this as a repressed memory. At least once Maggie got home she was able to smile again:smiles

oh my god -- this reminds me of many encounters we've had with pediatric residents at our doctor's office (it's a teaching practice, which is lovely and all...). one time a very young, very nervous resident attempted to clean the wax out of boo's ears and managed to get both boo and me SOAKING wet.
