Mack has been playing soccer this fall. he's not very aggressive. Sometimes, as a parent, it is frustrating. I guess I should be happy that he's not the kid on the team that slide tackles other kids. So we are practicing in our backyard. Franklin acts as the defense.
Mr. Franklin had a huge day this past week. And not in a good way. We had to have him neutered. We didn't want to, but we didn't have a choice. I don't want to get into details because that means I would have to use terminology I don't think people really like to hear too often (hint...it has to do with reproductive organs). ANd unfortunately, it was a more invasive surgery than normal because they had to do an incision in his stomach as well. SO, he has to wear a cone for 10 days. Yes, 10 days. It's rough for everyone in this house.
Macy is getting much better every day with saying words. Mostly names so far...but it's a start. She is getting better at understanding me too. I ask her to go get certain things like a diaper and wipes and she does it. I can ask her yes or no questions about what she wants to eat for a meal, or even if she is hungry, stinky, or sleepy. I'd say she is doing pretty well!
the other day we were driving down to Orem, and he said that he needed to go to the bathroom. UNFORTUNATELY, it was at that one stretch of freeway where there wasn't an exit for a few more miles. And when Mack says he needs to go...he means NOW. so, we pulled over to the side of the freeway where he did his thing. Brad needs to work on his discretion when it comes to public urination.
Another waiting room, another test. He had his blood drawn to test for arthritis to see if that was the source of all of his back pain. The tests came back all clear! However, the doctor wants me to take him to an orthopedic doctor now to have him checked out there and have more tests run so we can figure out why Mack has had back pain for the past 2 years. His appointment is not until November 10th, so we will wait til then!
