Holy crap. He does not handle these things well (same w/ the dentist), he was hyperventilating and moving too much. It made the draw take much longer than it should have. The tests all came back within or close to "normal range."
I was so relieved. I really started worrying there might be something wrong w/ his appendix or something. Anyway, the Dr. left it as thinking it's a stomach virus. The Dr. knew of my initial concerns that it was over anxiety, but he felt
confident that it was an actual virus. Anyway, I take Ryne back in tomorrow morning for a follow up with the Dr. Ryne still isn't feeling good, but I think he's better than he was yesterday. (But he'll never admit that :) So, once again: I'm Mother of the Year....
After the stress of the appointment and not sleeping, we came back home. I had a couple of hours before needing to pick Cal up and take him to swim. I ate something and planned on making a veggie pita sandwich after, but I
fell asleep. Holy cow...thank God I woke up just in time to p/u Cal. I was so tired, I forgot his swim bag, so we had to run home. Again, being MOTY I asked him if he just wanted to skip practice today (3 practices are mandatory per week, but 4 is encouraged). Cal asked, why would I do that? Good question... I should've just told him because I'm lazy. The kid keeps my honest.
It was 100 degrees out today, so given how the day worked out, I decided against an outside walk. Both for my sake and for my dog. I was really serious about getting my steps in, so I literally paced a lot of the time in that tiny Dr.'s office. I only got 7100 steps in today, falling short of my 10k goal. So, tonight
I did a "performance" ride on the recumbent bike. I got in 6 miles, but it wouldn't pick any of it up on my fitbit. Anyway, I'm proud of myself for making myself get the exercise in.
Oh, I must tell you the favorite words, that I often hear from my friends, "Dude, I just pissed my pants." OMG. It makes me laugh my ass off every single time. Tonight one of my friends text me her story about soiling her thong. I laugh, because I can so identify. Well, I can't identify with the
thong. My fat ass had to leave those behind many pounds ago. I still have them in my underwear drawer, but I'm not sure when they'll see the light of day again. For one, they aren't the greatest for "accidents." Ah, being a mother in her 40's. My girlfriends and I all seem to have that one thing in common :)
I hope you all have an awesome Friday!
