Hypochondriac, maybe???


I get a call today from the clinic nurse that Nicholas is in there. It's about 1:55pm and he only has another hour and 20 minutes left of the school day. Apparently during PE he slipped on some concrete by the sidewalk and smacked his knee into the ground. There was no blood, not even broken skin. But after having a cold cloth on it for some time he decided he needed a trip to the school clinic. There they iced his knee and had him sit with his leg elevated for a while. He continued to complain of pain so they called me. Apparently Nick has self-diagnosed himself with a bone infection which must be why it was feeling so much worse instead of better. I am on a first name basis with the clinic assistant after Nick's many stomach bugs last year. She called and explained his situation and what he thought the issue actually was. After a small giggle between us (quietly of course), I told her to send him back to class and tell him to take it easy and hang in there for the last hour.

He returned to class. I picked him up from school at normal time. He *ran* into the house from the car to get a drink.

The infection must have healed itself.
