  • Let's begin with a Robby update. He woke up in more pain today, but it did lesson some-back to yesterday's pain level. He did have to do a chest xray and blood work today, but of course we haven't heard anything about it yet.
  • He did get the results of his ultrasound today-he does not have gallstones or an inflamed gallbladder so the next confirmed plan is a gallbladder dye test later next week. He did receive some pain meds so they have helped some this evening.
  • Camp Geyer ended today-the kids had all worked hard this week, and Whitman told me all about his play that his group put on for the puppet people, and then they watched the puppet people's show. He is already trying to figure out what he wants to do next year-he did say that he would help me in cooking-and really, he has helped me for an hour every morning before it was time for him to go to his class. He counted cups, filled the cups with ingredients, placed the cups on the tables, ran errands, and checked my lists for me. He was a great help to me this week.
  • After things were over today, we all went down to the pit for hot dogs and water inflatables. I never thought about a swimsuit or quick drying clothes for Whitman, but he was fine in his clothes and enjoyed playing on the water slides. Reagan, Graham, and Whitman left first and then my car left with everyone esle.
  • We had a few errands to do-Walmart and Academy. At Academy, Anderson bought two pairs of shorts and then we just bought one pair for Campbell. Her shorts were pretty expensive so we opted to buy one even though she could have used two. However, when we checked out, her shorts costs what Anderson's did so I told her to go and get herself another pair, so we all left super happy from that errand.
  • Reagan and I worked for the rest of the afternoon getting ready for her friends to come over. They are sewing fabric letters on white tshirts for camp. We cut out all of the letters and now the kitchen is full of teenage girls learning how to sew-apparently sewing is a life skill that none of these girls were taught. There is only one who knows what she is doing, and Reagan is at least acting like she knows what she is doing.
  • Robby and I picked up pizza for all of the extra people, and now I am trying to determine just what all I need to accomplish tomorrow.
