**The Doctor Visit**
It was a very good thing we had prepared Isaac for his flu shot because it did help some when the time came for that. It was still a battle, but nothing like usual. The downside was we found out that he did need a vaccination so there was to be a second one. I couldn't hold him on my own and thankfully Doctor Tom heard the commotion and came in to help us out. He had Isaac sit on his lap and then he just held him down and I tried to calm him. Finally got it and the tears were just flowing (from Isaac, me and the doctor). Just prior to that the doctor had said such kind words to me regarding how God placed this child in the right home and that we have saved him with homeschooling. He said that the changes in his social skills were amazing within one year without any therapies. So at this point he understood that this shot "mess" was totally the autism and when he saw me with Isaac right after the last shot was done he started tearing up. I had picked up this 66 pound, 4 1/2 ft tall boy in my arms easily to hug him tight and tell him he had done his best. Isaac did thank Doctor Tom for helping too which amazed everyone. I must remember to draw on those kind words when I'm at the place where I'm just feeling so defeated. We did stop at McDonalds so he could have those hashbrowns for doing his best with the shots.
**The Sick Daughter**
Thankfully today Maegann was feeling so much better. Still thinking it must have been a growth thing as the largest complaint had been aches in her legs and lower back. The upset stomach appears to have been an acid thing as baking soda took care of it easily last night. Now to figure out what is causing that for her.
**The Hit & Run Accusation**
The officer called again this evening (took him long enough) and he did not have anything new to offer me at this point. He still needs to call the accusing party and tell them what he's learned from me and then take care of it all. Praying this is a kind person and they will stick to what the officer had originally stated which was just wanting the insurance information. Regardless, I'm at peace with it all, but I would like them not to place "hit and run" on my record since I did not hit anyone. Pray with me if you would that this person would just be content with the insurance paying for the repairs.
I tried the Kale tonight that came in our Bountiful Basket this week. I put it in with the spinach for our Asian Beef, but ended up pulling most out as it just did not wilt like spinach and was too firm to taste right in this stir fry. So first experiment with Kale was a "No." Here's the link as some of you have asked for more info on the baskets. Appears they are mostly in the western and southern states. www.bountifulbaskets.org
Tomorrow I'll start the day at the gym listening to Joyce Meyer as I am on the treadmill. I do plan to get some resistance and ab work in as I've not done much for about a week. The rest of the day is fairly empty. Schoolwork with the kids, piano lesson for Maegann and Bible study for me in the evening. I'm betting I can get a nap in there somewhere!
