Here we go again, Patrick has a new ailment, he has a sprained neck. It started Sunday night after no apparent injury. He stayed home on Monday so that I could take him to see the doctor. He was back at school and hockey on Tuesday, but that only aggravated things. Yesterday, the school called and asked me to pick him up because he couldn't concentrate through the pain. So I told them to send home tomorrow's homework while they are at it. I am considering taking him back to the doctor's today. Friday is a day off, so hopefully he can use this time to totally recover.
Matt's parents were planning to come up Friday and visit us, but his dad thinks he might be coming down with something. I have a back up plan now, DO NOTHING. Nothing at all. It is sad though, due to our weekend hockey schedule and his mom's cancer treatment schedule in January, we haven't seen them since Christmas. We were going to go out to dinner to celebrate Kira and Damon's birthdays!
Oh and I have to correct myself. I was shocked and dismayed to find that Patrick's team has to take part in a consolation round. Even the players aren't really excited about the sound of that. We still don't have the schedule for that. But in the meantime we carry on with practices 3 nights a week (down from our 6 day a week schedule), and the other 2 boys each plays an hour of hockey on Saturday AND Sunday. Until Super Saturday, March 29th. *sigh*
