When Gibson went for his 5 year check up back in July he ended up having his blood tested for cholesterol and triglycerides. His cholesterol was fine, but his triglycerides were 3 times the amount they should be.
So, Dr. Parker suggested that we switch to 2% milk and cut back to french fries only once a week.
A few weeks ago when I was denying him french fries again I was trying to explain to him that the doctor said he couldn't have too many french fries because it would be bad for his heart.
The other day he used a funny phrase and it took me a while to figure out how he came up with it. He was asking me for french fries again. Of couse, I said no, but he asked me again and then told me, "Mom, it'll be ok.............. they won't hurt my feelings."
Because I had told him they would hurt his heart he thought I meant make him sad or "hurt his feelings."
