Don't miss it.

I just uploaded a post called "Who knew?" that appears after "I have a question..."  If you have not yet read it, please read it before you read this post (and close your eyes as you pass this picture).  Then they will be in a more appropriate order for you.

On Monday afternoon, Brenden was outside playing with his "friends" (the three boys down the street who evidently have no parents).  When they were headed home, Newman was following them and Brenden tried to retrieve him with no luck.  I told Brenden we would hop on our bikes and go get him.  I headed in the house for some shoes and realized that Brenden had hopped on his bike with no helmet or pads.  We made it almost all of the way around our loop safely, but down the street from us there is a evil, man-eating puppy who thinks Brenden is particularly tasty.  Well, he attacked Brenden, who flew off of his bike and his implant flew another 5 feet from him.  We figure he had a concussion because his pupils were huge and all he wanted to do was sleep.  He cried in a fetal position for 3 hours whining that the dog was getting him and he was mostly incoherent.  He seems fine now, but I was pretty worried for a while.

Oooh, poor kid. That looks painful. I would have been very worried too.
