Breakfast of Champions

So we found that while at the hospital TJ had trouble taking pain medicine in pill form.

They were kind enough to give us a pill crusher (though I’m sure that will show up on the non-itemized bill as a secret expense) and we then mixed it into some pudding for him.

His pain was well controlled the whole time. Amazingly he didn’t even need any of the harder stuff.


Blistery Boy

Their school offers learning to skate. We’re sure to sign them up for it and pay for the skate rental every year.

TJ especially likes it… so much so that he ignores his body until he can’t walk on the foot due to the blister.

I think it might also be because the only other person in the entire school with his size feet is actually in high school (while TJ is in 8th grade).

After draining it and putting a “mole skin” on it he was back up and limping after the weekend.

The skating opportunity is awesome though. I’m glad they get it, and so is he, even if there are blisters involved.


A little less wise…

RedFlare had her wisdom teeth removed today.  While the kids behaved themselves quite well in the dental office for the two hours we were there (one waiting because they were behind, another during her procedure) my poor lovely wife came out exhausted.

Seems they had to drug her not once, not twice, but three times to keep her out during the procedure.  So almost a dose of knockout whatever it was for every tooth.  Then she was quite… loopy.  I won’t go into the details as I know she wouldn’t want me to, but it was pretty rough for her.
