I'm Ba-a-a-ack! (DSL is Up and Running)

Actually, it was up at the end of last week.

But it was Fall Break at UNM.
That meant that instead of doing my blog, we:
1) winterized the dog run
2) escorted a field trip--a walking tour of parts of Albuquerque for the New Mexico history course at EMHS--cool pictures will be featured on the Nearly Wordless Wednesday for the next few weeks!
3) spent time in the Sukkah
4) slept!

Last night I had planned to do some blogging. At 2:15 MDT, I got a call from the nurse at EMHS.
The Boychick had been tackled on the soccer field. His knee was alarmingly swollen. (Tackled? Soccer? It was an accident. Freshman boys are such baby bears!)
So I spent the remaining part of the day this way:
1)driving from UNM to EMHS
2) using the nurse's phone to make an Urgent Care appointment at UNM Peds Clinic
3) driving to UNM Peds with a stop for a teriaki bowl on the way because we knew it would be a long night
4) dropping the Boychick off at the entrance
5) parking and meeting said Boychick
6) limping to Peds
7) waiting to be triaged
8)waiting to have the knee X-rayed
9) waiting to see the Dr.
10) going to the pharmacy for pain meds and a brace

No time for blogging!

The Boychick has no fractures. His kneecap is badly bruised and may be sprained. Time will tell. In the meantime, he has been prescribed RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).

So for now, I am at home. Cleaning out my clogged in-box and my equally messy desk.

Technology. It's great when it works.

Welcome back. Glad to hear there are no fractures. Definitely no dancing with the Torah for him tonight. We will say a mishebarach for a speedy recovery
