It's Not a Tumor!

5:00 AM, Zzzzzzzzzz

That would be the sound of me sleeping through when I should have awakened, due to my failure to turn on my alarm. I only woke up half an hour late, but that was too late to get in the early-morning workout. Drat.

On the "Cue the Hallelujah Chorus" side of things, however, I am pleased to announce that the Gum Zombie's foot is not, I repeat not broken! The orthopedist says he's just got a bad sprain, so the boy is in an air cast for three weeks with no jumping, running, leaping, or otherwise sproinging about, but outside of that we're fine. Hooray!

And because it took so long to get everything done for the child this morning, I'm out of work for the remainder of the day so it looks like I have a little extra time to park my happy self on that recumbent bike anyway.

Sometimes it all just works out. Whew.

Yeah on no fracture!!! You'll probably have to tie him to a chair, though, to prevent said jumping, running, leaping and sproinging.

"...the boy ... no jumping, running, leaping, or otherwise sproinging about..."

I'm just sure that having both those phrases in the same sentence creates some sort of logical negation and causes the whole thing to collapse on itself. Boys, not sproinging? It's unnatural, I tell you!

Glad it's no worse, though.

At least he's not flailing about with those crutches any longer. I was waiting for him to knee-cap someone with the danged things!

That is wonderful news. He will likely have a hard time keeping himself still though. . . . Take care!

Yeah, I know it's going to be challenging with the sproinging child... especially since this is the kid who does an inverse incline plank with his hands on the couch back and feet three feet higher on the wall.

Oy vey.
