The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Monday, January 12, 2009
Happiness lies in getting enough sleep. Which I didn't get last night. Which sucks.

There is good news, though - today the Smart Boy goes back to see his ophthalmologist for his one week check up on his hyphema. Provided the inflammation is decreasing as expected, he should be cleared to drive and return to school tomorrow. He'll still be on the pupil dilators, steroids and inclined sleep surface for another week, and banned from Ultimate Frisbee for another week after that. When he does start playing again, he'll be doing so with eye protection.

He's really quite tired of lying around the house, and is looking forward to returning to school. As he says, it's different if you choose to be a lazy ass rather than being forced to do so.

In other news, I'm entering week 2 or my DU Leadership class. There is one student (the Über Pad) who is making me reach for the cutlery, but overall, it isn't as bad as I'd feared. However, I don't think I'll be working particularly hard, either.

And it's snowing today.

At least if the Uber Pad somehow happens to fall on something pointy, that may have been in your hand at the time, he'll be able to absorb all that blood that spills.

Glad to hear the Smart Boy is doing better.

Ah, he's getting back out there a week early (I didn't think it'd been two weeks already o.O). Good to hear.

That's awesome news! I saw the news while I was in class so couldn't reply - how scary as a mom - and I'm so glad he seems to be recovering well.

Glad SmartBoy is getting better.

And...Sleep? what is this sleep you speak of?

Ha! That's today's quote of the day. Glad he's healing well.

Uber Pad, now with wings!

Glad Smart Boy is quickly mending.

One always wishes that lessons in safety could be learned without all the pain, suffering, and permament damage.
