It's been a bit of a medical day today.
Amy had her MenC jab at school and her arm is aching but apart from that she's fine.
After dropping Thomas off at school it was straight to the vets so Sparky could have his boosters. I don't really think pets need vaccinating every year and ours have only ever had the initial ones and always lived to a ripe old age. However, it's a condition of them going into kennels so it's got to be done. I bought flea drops and worming tablets while I was there as well. Total cost £67.20.
At 9.45am I was back at school collecting Thomas for an appointment at the Doctors. While there I bought a school jumper for the music festival he's taking part in tomorrow. Another £12.95 handed over.
He's been complaining of pains in his legs on and off for a few weeks and says his knee keeps giving way. He's never walked right since he broke his leg 7 years ago, he has a slight gait and can sometimes limp until his leg has 'warmed up'. I've had him back to the surgery several times about it over the years but they always said nothing was wrong. Anyway I thought I'd better take him to the Docs again and it turns out, as I suspected all along, he has LLD, (leg length discrepancy), or to you and me, one leg longer than the other. It stems from his fracture when apparently his bone over-compensated while healing and grew quicker than in his other leg. Anyway, he's been referred to a specialist and we're now waiting for an appointment to see what they can/need to do.
Phase 2 of 'Project 3D Solar System' is now in place. Painting the planets. The sooner we get this done the better. Thomas doesn't really have any interest in these projects but we do them because the idea of him not taking one in sends him into a complete panic. Never mind that half the class don't bother, we at Number 38 have no choice if we want to avoid a meltdown. This is his "I really want to be doing something else rather than painting balls of icing" face.
I've just done a trade with him. Get on with the painting and you can have my laptop. An added bonus is he sits in the lounge with it so me and Amy get the games room and will be able to watch Suffragette.
And finally, we found out the colour of the baby today. It's a pink one, so we have a grand-daughter on the way. Can't wait.
