Smooth lately

Things are going pretty good for Tanner right now.  He's actually out at the river with friends today. As always, he's not much letting the brace and crutches slow him down.

He's been losing weight and this past week he told the doctor at Cook's that it wasn't even so much that he's nauseated anymore (he's been taking his stomach acid medicine first thing every morning for the last couple of weeks), he just doesn't have much of an appetite right now.

He also hasn't been sleeping much, but I don't know how much of that is possible side effects of the drugs, and how much is just being 18 years old.

I don't know if I've mentioned it or not, but a month or so ago our back door was kicked in and the X-box 360 was stolen.  They didn't take anything else, just the X-Box system.  Since then, Tanner hasn't spent a lot of time at home.  He seems to be on the go all the time.

He went to TCC this past week and talked to a counselor and she gave him some information about grants and things and next week he's going to go back and take his placement test. She told him he could start online courses at any time but he would rather have the experience of going to the campus so he's going to wait and see if Dr. Nicholas says he has to have surgery on the broken leg or not when we got back at the end of September.

I'm picking up my granddaughter this afternoon and will have both grandkids tomorrow so I'd better close this out and run to the grocery store.

MawMaw needs to pick up some food for the babies!
