No word yet from the doctor about the lab results which, frankly, is probably a good thing. About a week from now we’ll go back for an office visit and get the official word. If they haven’t called yet for additional testing they probably won’t. It’s still possible I might get a call but most likely there are no bleeding issues and the appointment will be straight forward. It’s definitely a relief not to have heard back with bad news even if there’s a small chance the call might still come.
The wound is healing. The kaleidoscope of colors has faded for the most part. Now he has a golf ball sized lump. While it looks bad, it’s almost reduced to the point you might expect it to happen from a random bump on the head. I’m looking forward to it going away entirely. With every bump and scrape, you get a funny look now and again from strangers. This particular injury has resulted in way too many uncomfortable encounters for my tastes.
I owe you all another update next week after we see the doctor next Monday. I expect the news will be good considering the circumstances. I’m looking forward to moving past this injury. I could really do without one more person looking at me like I injured the kid with my bare hands.
p.s. I apologize profusely for all the typos in the previous entry. Apparently, Grammarly went on vacation without me and didn’t say anything.
