Wednesday, I think?
Huck has an infected finger. I’ll spare you the gory details. Suffice it to say they’re gory, and I’ve added a new and entirely unwanted skill (pus drainage) to my maternal repertoire. We spent much of yesterday at the doctor, he’s now on antibiotics, and, proving there’s lemonade to be made even from a festering lemon, the two of us got to sit cuddled up until midnight watching Minecraft videos together. If I’m a little punchy today, you’ll understand.
Did manage to squeeze in some fun yesterday before the unfortunate appendage went from alarming to horrific: a bit of geocaching with the younger three at a lovely park we don’t visit often. At least, the first cache was at the park; the second one was at the dead end of a neighborhood street a couple of blocks away, a somewhat grimier location than expected. To Huck’s disgruntlement I wouldn’t let him touch anything, which means Rilla got the fun of the cache grab. WB doesn’t care who makes the find as long as he gets his turn at holding the phone/compass.
Today was piano and repaired hearing-aid fetching (happy is its owner, who can hear again) and finger-soaking and general collapsing, and nary a book did we read. But if you need to know how to lure zombies into an iron golem trap, Huck and I are your man.

Poor Huck. I hope his finger is better soon.

Poor fella. Hope he mends very quickly.

I’m reminded of Across the Puddingstone Dam. Anyway. I hope he’s on the mend soon!

Poor little guy! I hope this last night was better for sleeping for you both? And that it heals quickly! I, personally, am proclaiming All Hail the Mighty Antibiotic this day because i am not sure we would have survived this current plague(s) without.
And hooray for having hearing aids back! I know how hard it is for my mother when hers are in for repairs, so glad WB has his back.

So sorry about the goriness! I hope Huck recovers soon. Aidan has an infected toe at the moment, so I relate to your description of how it tilts your life a bit. I am not used to *recommending* that he play Legend of Zelda a little longer so that he will stay off his feet.
