Christopher called close to midnight last night. He was watching a movie with close friends before one of them leaves (today) for a summer internship. I was quite surprised when the phone rang as I'd told him I would be going to bed when a favorite British comedy was over (PBS).
He couldn't wait to share the news. His grades were posted and he had received all "A's" except the one "I" (Incomplete) in math. What a great relief. He was still quite sick when he took his Saturday final (8:00 in the morning!) and he didn't do very well. This was in his major, too. Thankfully, he had done well enough the rest of the year that he still made an "A". All those late nights of studying has paid off.
He had thought of taking the Calculus class over this summer, anyway, since he felt he didn't understand it completely (this was the same course that his dad had to take twice in college!). Being on his back in the clinic on the same day of the final made that decision easy.
I took advice from the comments and applied a hot compress (just a clean wash rag with really hot tap water) a couple of times on the infected scratch. I had tea tree oil so it was rubbed over the scratch while warm. I'm also using the antibiotic ointment. When the doctor asked if I had antibiotic ointment, I told him I have a son who is quite active... such ointment has been a priority since he was a child. :)
Anyway, it looked a lot better today. Of course, I still have to take all the antibiotics... that whole diabetes thing and infections.
I'll be back later with the pantry post. My friend, Kimberly, left an excellent comment in yesterday's post. Her comment made me realize I should actually plan Pantry Hints & Pic(k)s, including simple do's and don'ts of what I have learned through the years. See... you knew I'd include some kind of prose. :)
Believe it or not, I'm not all that talkative in real life. My husband is the chatty one of the family. I have chatty fingers on the computer.
