This week has been especially bad for us as Lucas injured himself last Saturday and Max has been hit hard by a viral infection. Saturday morning Lucas had a black belt credit test (he's testing for 2nd Dan in February!!!) and this test was for recommended 2nd Dan. They had to break FOUR boards with a back kick. He tried to break with his left foot and the boards were uneven and they slipped and he ended up with a foot full of cuts and bruises. It was so sore we had to get a doctor's note for PE because the poor kid couldn't even put his shoes on. It is Friday, now, and he's better, so we're happy about that.
Poor Max has had such a time. He started feeling sick on Friday and it was apparent he was very sick on Saturday. I took him to the doctor on Monday and she said he had the stomach flu. He had a fever on and off for about five days. He didn't start eating regular food until Thursday and didn't handle it very well. Needless to say, he's been out of school all week!
I've been working from home all week so I could stay with Max. Luckily no one else is exhibiting any flu-like symptoms so I'm hoping the worst is behind us. Keep your fingers crossed for healthier days to come!
