Major meltdown at the clinic

Anxiously waiting for her turn. She could sense something's up.
 Little Moon got her MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) immunization today. Oh how she hated it! She was already tense before the doctor arrived. When we were called into the clinic, she clung to me and wailed. She was crying so loudly, I almost couldn't hear what the doctor was saying. She was hysterical when we made her sit on the examination table. I've never heard her cry like that before! It took three of us - the daddy, the doctor's secretary, and me - to hold her down. The actual injection took all of 3 seconds. Right after the injection, when she was back in her daddy's arms, she stopped crying.

Here she is a few minutes after, playing in the garden at the hospital. Like nothing happened.
