At the house, we got a bunch of stuff done including picking up Madison from her slumber party. That crazy girl stayed up till 5am and she was sooooo tired and I knew a nap was in her future; it was just a matter of time till she conked out! We ran a few errands and came back home to Madsion sound asleep in the den so we tried very hard not to wake her up; we didn't want any bears coming out of hibernation too early! The kids spent the rest of the day hanging around the house with Craig watching movies and playing while I went and enjoyed a little "retail therapy." While I was figuring out what we were having for dinner, the kids were playing around and I heard some crying.
It was Ingram...he had bonked his head on the door from the kitchen to the laundry room and there was a small red spot. Then the red spot started swelling a little and in less than a minute later it was a full blown "squishy" knot. We've been in this situation before when Ingram hit his head on the garage; he got a knot just like this about a while back two days before he was due for labs and a platelet transfusion. That time we had to head in and wound up getting labs and our transfusion early and guess what...the exact same thing happened this time too except we only had about 14 hours left of trying to keep him from any injuries. Oh well, we just like to keep the doctors and nurses at St. Jude on their toes!
I left with Ingram at 7pm and called the Medicine Room as we were driving out of the neighborhood and we pulled back in the driveway at 2am! Craig was in charge of the girls and they ended up still having their movie night watching Madagascar 2 and eating Royal Panda and Sonic for dinner. These are the kind of things that are our new normal, but they just get in the way of our plans sometimes. Last night, we were planning on having another movie night, but this time Madison was going to be there! The funny thing about our trip to SJ tonight was that we went ahead and had the transfusion so we didn't have to go back Sunday morning. Everyone also got a kick out of the picture of Ingram with darts on his head and laughed even more as they realized the darts are what caused the bruising in the circle shape on his head, which is another sign of a needed transfusion. Nothing like a platelet transfusion to kick start a full week of Fall Break!!

They Have Fun And Both Act Like Little Men!
