    You can get apps that support Flash on an iPad, we use one called Photon and it replaces Safari as the browser when you want Flash support. It interacts with their website for everything, so it is a little slower, but may be fast enough for whatever game he likes.

    Photon worked! Now I just have to figure out how to get him to be able to play it independently on the iPad. I'm home again, but only for 2 days and then I'm gone for 6 days... ugh (on both our behalf!)

    Sore still around..... sigh. But at least I'm back home from my 2 week stint away. It's smaller, hopefully just another week to go....

    This damn sore. It keeps coming back!!! It's really small, about the size of a pencil eraser, but it now is deeper, about 3 mm deep. ARGH. I lay him on his side to get pressure off of it and now he's developing red marks from being on his side, so I can't have him on his side anymore. ARGH ARGH ARGH! He's been in bed for 2 weeks now, not counting all the time before this, and it will be at least 2 more weeks.

    Ever notice that being grounded never happens in the depths of winter but only during the summer? Twice in my life I've had to spend July & August grounded.

    Hang in there you two

    Ain't that the truth?

    What kind of mattress? Maybe a low air loss (or I use an alternating pressure one) is mandated?
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Tempurpedic with a sheepskin over it. But I just drug out his alternating channel overlay today to see if that will help.
