Luke's tantrums got pretty bad last week. He would scream for hours. After an emergency phone call to Dr. Jerry we put him on Motrin three times a day and a laxative to clean him out. The Motrin seemed to be working because he seemed like a different boy on Wednesday (the day after the call). It's been an easier week but then he started his tantrums up again last night. He started screaming, out of the blue, with seemingly no precursor. When he screams it's almost as if someone is scraping the inside of your skull with a fingernail file. It is jarring and loud and it is almost impossible to concentrate on anything at all when the tantrums come. One more week until school starts. After Luke took his newly messed underpants off and spread the contents the length of the living room this morning, I am wondering if we'll make it...

His grace is sufficient.
Besides, I get to spend all Tuessday at Mike Colon's workshop so what am I complaining about?
