What English word has three consecutive double letters?
Imagine you are in a dark room. How do you get out?
We didn't do riddles today. Didn't do a whole lot except hang out in the hospital room. I made Marlon go on a few walks before he lost some mobility. Accessed again. Oh, how he dislikes being accessed. I don't think there is anyone that likes it though. Attached to a pole that stays close at all times.
At least he wasn't accessed until after 8 pm. He didn't really need to be at the hospital until then except for the morning appointment, but it just isn't worth back and forth twice in one day.
We did drawing wars today. I am not good at drawing. It was good for a laugh. The first was dinosaurs which he chose because they aren't his specialty. Marlon's is on the left, mine on the right.
We agreed my bottom one looked like a cross between a gerbil and a rat with his mouth stitched closed.
I keep saying how lucky Marlon is. Especially compared to so many other kids here. But he doesn't like it when I say that and he is absolutely right. Yes, he may be doing well compared to others, but it is not a comparison game. He still has to endure the treatment and his feelings and discomfort. We all have our path and there are always bumps on the road. There are always others that have it worse but that doesn't take away our bumps. I can be sensitive and also so very insensitive. I am learning.
