So excited to be going to the pediatrician for the second day in a row!

16 yo sick yesterday; took him in to be sure it wasn't flu. It wasn't. He's better today and back at school.
Other 16 yo rolled his ankle at lacrosse practice last night; can't put weight on it today, so back to the dr. for x-ray and crutches. 
Good thing the pedi is really close to our house and easy to get to.

    It's seems to be the time of year, Gretchen. There is so much going around, colds, flu, etc. Glad it wasn't the flu for your son, it is a nasty strain. A rolled ankle sounds painful.

    Density: medium
    Porosity: high
    Thickness: fine

    My cold is back in full force & my roommate is still battling the flu.  Sorry about your sons and for you.

    Ankle not broken! So relieved about that. Other twin back to school, so knock on wood, we're on our way to full mendation. 
    Third boy and I get on a plane this afternoon to fly to Oregon to check out U of O. He's been accepted, but haven't checked out the campus yet.

    Hope it goes well Gretchen, very exciting times. My son goes to uni about 10 mins drive away, didn't fancy moving away from home!

    He liked it a lot!  Still waiting to hear from one more college, and then of course waiting for financial aid letters, but we're getting closer to making a decision.
