Trick-or-treating last night went well. My son seemed to have fun and he got a lot of candy. After we got home was when when some not so pleasant things happened.
First up is my dog. We are watching him very closely because he decided to attack my son’s Apple Man while we were trick-or-treating. Apple Man was an adorable little creation my son made in school. He had an apple for his body and marshmallows for his head, arms and legs. He was sitting on the counter, but my dog found him too tempting, I guess (my dog never grabbed things from the counter before).
It wouldn’t have been much of a problem except that Apple Man was assembled by using toothpicks. We can’t be certain, but my dog may have eaten one of the toothpicks. Since they are wood, they won’t show up on x-rays so there isn’t anything we can do but wait. So far, my dog seems fine.
Next up is my son. This morning he woke up and crawled into our bedroom. His ankle was hurting. The first look-over by Dr. Mom revealed some swelling so I think he just may have sprained it. He really didn’t want to walk so we kept him home from school. Tomorrow he will be going to the doctors. Something on both of his feet seems odd (both of his feet have a bump and my husband and I both don’t have a bump like that) so we’ll get it checked out. I worry about my son first and foremost and I will pay up the yazoo if needed to keep him healthy. But the thought dealing with more doctor bills makes me cringe.
I’ll know more about both my son and my dog tomorrow. I try my best not to worry about things but it is tough. I tried writing a normal post about finance, but my mind is pretty pre-occupied as you can probably tell. I hope my son and my dog will be perfectly fine.
