I Should Be Grading

I know that I should be grading papers, but this is more fun.

Last night was the last dose of IG until the fall. The Wiz and I are both really happy. However, just like two weeks ago, he woke up in the middle of the night throwing up, and continued until about 6:30 this morning. I don't remember being told that this was a possible side effect. So, of course he's home again because of that. I'm hoping that his skin will heal a bit (it's really tough right now) and it will be easier to stick in the needle. I'd also like to see him gain some weight, too.

Speaking of The Wiz, he had an allergist appointment last week. His allergies are not under good control. He's taking 5 different medications, and still has lots of itching, sneezing, runny nose, etc. He's going to have more testing, and might need some immunology testing, too. Lovely! We could use another specialist. I was hoping to wait until he's 8 when he has to see an endocrinologist, but why not another? We haven't added a new specialist for him for two years! They weighed him at the allergist, and fully dressed, but no shoes, he weighed a whopping 39 pounds. Do you think if we feed him doughnuts and ice cream he'll add another pound by the new school year?

This is how much of the yarn from Game Boy's sweater is left:
I have no clue what I'm going to do with it.
