I'm home from the hospital. They removed a 1cm tumor from my parotid salivary gland. I was in the beautiful Mt. Sinai Hospital on 100th Street and Madison Avenue. They remodeled it and it's like a luxury hotel now. LOL. Anyway, preliminary pathology shows no cancer and the more extensive pathology report will take a few more days. I see my doc on Saturday. I was given Percocet in the hospital and boy, did they kill all the pain. They also made me light-headed and slurry so I don't think I'm going to fill my Vicodin prescription, since they are very similar. Tylenol should be fine.

J is over her friend G's house today. She may stay for dinner. I was reading The Unschooler's Handbook in the hospital and liked a suggestion of making some sort of portfolio or scrapbook covering all the things J does over a year. I thought it would be a fun thing to do together and it would be nice for her to have a memento of the year. It would also be good documentation for the Supt. I thought of categories like, Dance, Annie, Friends, Projects, Trips, Etc. Sounds like fun to me.

Glad to hear you are back home and that all things look good! Enjoy the painkillers, but not too much!

You should post all the girls' state ideas over at Teach Your Children Well. It would be a terrific lesson plan. It doesn't have to be formal in the least, just a list of all the fun ways they learned about states. We'd love to see it all.
