No school!

D has off school today so we're going to have some fun!

Publix - for milk, fruit, TP
Library - for Cam Jansen, D's fave books for read-aloud time
Bank - for some cash
Vet - for some flea meds for Fizz
The Cupcake Spot - for cupcakes!

This afternoon we're going to make potato-print Valentine's Cards.

Best of all, no rushing about in the morning, no waking A from his nap to rush to car line, no homework, no packing lunch or snacks. I think I like days off school as much as D does.

Family Medical Update:

Dad: Week #2 of chemo going well, he's mainly tired and still trying to keep his weight up.

Mom: She has been having shortness of breath, dizzy spells, pain in her back/abdomen. They diagnosed gallstones AND kidney stones!! So she'll have to have gallbladder surgery and then they'll deal with the kidney stones.

Us: In an effort to keep our end up in the family medical drama, A developed a rather severe limp in his right foot. Wednesday night he started walking on his tiptoes, with his foot pigeon-toed! By yesterday morning he wouldn't walk at all and I couldn't even put on his shoes. So I took him to the doc, who made a preliminary diagnosis of Transient Synovitis - basically a viral infection of the synovial fluid in his hip/leg - and said keep him quiet and give Motrin every 6 hours. But I also got a script for x-rays and blood work, so if he's not doing better by Monday I need to take him to All Childrens for that.

Praying. Praying. Praying for healing.
