I knew Marty would not feel good today. As much as I wanted to force him to go to school he just wasn’t up to it. I let him stay home mostly because of the state achievement tests tomorrow and Wednesday. I knew if he pushed through today it might set him back a few more days. So I called Dr F for an appointment and let work know I would be taking *another* day off.
When we saw the doctor I found out why the lawn mowing set him back so much. He is allergic to several grasses and trees. When we went to the pharmacy we got some masks for him to wear when he mows.
Dr F took some blood to find out why Marty keeps getting better then worse. I’ll ask him about the results when I go in on Wednesday for a check up. I just pray Marty gets through the tests without any problems. He really needs to pass them.
Update May 4: Marty is anemic. Dr F isn’t sure if it’s ok to take iron with his other medicines but he thought a little extra folic acid would be all right. One more thing to ask the rheumatologist when we go back in a couple weeks.
