i got my male spawn a jab. i called every pharmacy and clinic in a 50 mile radius, asking if i could sign him up for an appointment. they were all booked up or wouldn't even talk to me, except for one, across the river in gretna. i got the pharmacist on the phone and explained to him that my son is overweight, but also that he's been on various meds for 20 years and i consider him vulnerable. then i just kinda let it all out and told him i've lost one kid, i really don't wanna lose another, so if there's a cancellation, can he fit the lad in?
i got a call saturday morning. he fit the lad in. off we went.
so my son got his first jab. he felt sick and threw up yesterday. i bought him a pizza today and he seems much better.
that means me, chi chi, sam and gavin all have our second shots lined up april 9th, 10th, 11th.
my point: it doesn't hurt to try to call around. you may get a really cool person on the phone. the kind of person who just wants to give out shots.
who knows how life goes, but here i am, remaining hopeful.
p.s. i got lost on the way there, mwhaha. i had google-mapped it on my phone, but the directions were wrong. i haven't been across the river in over 30 years, when i had to show up at the gretna courthouse (none of yer business.) a very kind biker-lookin dude standing outside a tire shop gave me picture-perfect directions. a toast, to him and to the pharmacist.
