Taz had an emergency room visit yesterday. First of all let me say he is fine.
I dropped he and Teddy off at the Y yesterday so I could get a couple of hours too myself. We had Christmas break. They went to school a day and a half and have been off for cold or snow ever since. It is much too cold for kids to play outside. We live in a small town and the roads were drifted over leading out of town. The roads should be fine now so I may run away later today.
Anyway, Taz was going to go swim. He was going out for the high school diving team. He really did not get the hang of the movements and was getting into a lot of trouble at practice. After he punched somebody we took him off the team. Teddy was going to go lift weights.
I ran some errands, stopped at Arby's and got a cup of coffee and just sat down with a magazine. As I'm opening the magazine the phone rings and I hear "Taz hit his head on the diving board and needs stitches. Come right away." My heart stopped as I am picturing the worst. I get there and he walks out and with "hi mom". It didn't look bad but I took him in and we spent the next 2 hours at the ER. He ended up with a couple of staples. He says 4. I haven't had the courage to look yet. I am as squimish as they come. But since I have to watch for signs of infection I'm going to have to look.
A couple of RAD related issues, none of them involving Taz other than his incessant nonstop chatter for 2 hours. But he was nervous so I'll give him that. Teddy was with us. He was in the waiting room. When I came back after about an hour and sat down for a few minutes he did not ask at all what the doctor said or how Taz was. He just showed me a rug burn on his elbow and said he needed to put medicine on that. When Taz came out and we got in the car Teddy didn't say one word to him, not one word. It is hard to comprehend the depth lack of attachment effects them. It really is. When things like that happen, it still surprises me.
Hopefully today will be ER free!
Have a healing weekend.
