Surgery Updates

My son had his 4 wisdom teeth extracted on Monday - only one is causing him any problems and we think that is because of the stitch - but he says that it still hurts when he chews.  He and I just got back from a trip to Target and Bed, Bath & Beyond shopping for college . . . $500 later and I am wondering how the hell is he going to fit this all in his dorm room.  YIKES!!!  He moves in next weekend.

My husband is home and recuperating.  He has been going for short walks and says that things are feeling good.  He has to be careful not to bend or twist for awhile - and is bored - but will hopefully continue to get better.

No running this morning - I slept until 9:00 - which is unheard of - sleeping late for me is 7:30 - my dog, Sophie got up and wanted to go out at 5:30 - I got up and then went back to bed.  Heard my oldest son leave for work around 7:30 and just kept sleeping.  At first I was a little upset to have slept that long - but once I was up and realized that my body needed it - I was OK.

ARGGGGGG - the temperatures are heating back up - I was so hoping that things would stay cool for the Mini this weekend.  The weather report calls for showers and thunderstorms ending early Saturday morning - my guess is that temp's will be in the low to mid 70's for the race - but the humidity will be high.  Well at least we have all been running in these conditions all summer long.
