Just a brief note to say…

J hit his head at school today.  His teacher was out for the morning and The Aide was working with him.  She was told to send a note explaining, and all I got was “he hit himself two or three times, and then was fine.”   Quite obviously he isn’t.  That abrasion is hardly the result of “two or three” smacks to the head followed by calm.

The tangle was unraveled.  He hit himself over ten times.  It shows.

After this, of course, J is walking around wearing a bandage, and I, of course, am watching him like a hawk.  This evening he had a scratchy throat and looked a little sad so, like the crazy, hyperbolic nerds that we are, we dashed to Urgent Care with him.  He IS coming down with something, and if he has a temperature we need to take him back.  He is well enough, however, to mention -casually- that he wants Five Guys for dinner.  I said yes.  It was already nearly 8 when we got seen, and even though we had chicken, rice and lentils waiting at home, I didn’t think we’d be in the mood to deal with a full plate of food after all this…

Anyway…I digress…

This is the noteworthy part of the visit to the doctor: since November 18, J has lost twenty pounds.  Yes.  He has.  Yes.  It shows.  Yes.  We’re over the moon with joy.  No, we’re not letting up…the Five Guys was a last minute solution to a major disruption (we were about to have dinner when J started complaining.)  So tomorrow, for lunch, J will have chicken, rice and lentils…

There you have it…

I hope that was brief enough…

And I hope you’re all even a fraction of how happy we feel right now…
