Yesterday it was a gorgeous day out. I picked up Riley from school at 1:00 and we headed home to play.
Riley immediately got his helmet on and grabbed his electric scooter he got for his birthday and took off down the road. I sat on the back of Roberts truck and watched him zoom up and down the street. He was so cute. I walked to the mailbox to get the mail and while my back was to Riley, he comes whizzing around me. Out of my side vision I say him fly through the air and hit the pavement. It all went in slow motion from that point on. I threw the mail and ran to him. He couldn't get his breath, then he screamed and cried holding his stomach.
I grabbed him up and just held him while he screamed. I just knew we would be going to the ER. It scared the living hell out of me.
He decided to go one handed on the scooter. He hit a rock and the whole scooter came to a screeching halt and he flew off hitting the pavement.
If he had not had his helmet on, we definitely would have been in the hospital.
It ends up that it just knocked the air out of him and bruised his leg pretty bad.
It's a miracle anyone gets their kids raised.

Robert is doing ok. Did I ever follow up on that? I'd look back at my journal if I knew how to.
He went to his specialist doc for his thyroid and they will do a scan in April. His main problem right now is he can't sleep well. I'm sure all that is connected.
He just keeps saying that once you hit 40 everything goes "straight down" and he does this hand motion like a roller coaster going down. He's such a nut. He had to buy preparation H today at Walgreens. (You know what that's for don't you?)
It's not funny...really it's not, but when he came home from Walgreens with his cream, he made that hand motion.
