Lots of waiting… Day 1122 13DEC11
We got an early start today with a good breakfast of pancakes thanks to Renee. As soon as we were done it was time to drive up to north Tampa for a doctors appointment for Renee, the boys and I sat in the waiting room together passing the time. When she was done we all headed back to the house for lunch. Renee and the boys got the outside Christmas lights up before we all set off again. Renee went out to finish up the Christmas shopping and the boys and I did the grocery run and then a trip to the bank on the way to Jarrod's late afternoon appointment with his podiatrist to get his ingrown toenail fixed. Joshua and I sat in the room with Jarrod while he got his toe numbed up and then the nail trimmed back. He did great but I am sure it will start hurting when the anesthesia wears off later on. We stopped off at the library to donate some books on the way back home. When we got there Jarrod propped his foot up and Joshua and I decided to get a quick skate in before the light disappeared. Renee got home from shopping while we were out in the street and we headed in to get some dinner going.
Sure enough Jarrod's toe started throbbing pretty bad as the numbness wore off, he was being a trooper and gritting his teeth a bit when he headed off to bed. I hope that in the morning he feels a lot better, the first 24 hours is the worst the Doctor said.
Tomorrow is a stay at home and get some school work done kind of day for both the boys.
