This is a pic of little man after having a NICE ice cream treat about a week ago....notice the chocolate all around the mouth?! So...Sunday night Coby started complaining about his knee hurting. He would NOT stand OR walk on it at all! At first I took it as a game, there was no cuts, no blood, no bruising, no bug bites...NOTHING that I could SEE!
Well, it continued through the night and into Monday morning. I took him to his pediatrician Monday morning, because I knew something must be really wrong if he wouldn't even WALK!
The pediatrcian took x-rays and did blood work. Of course we won't get the results back until today! However, at this point she is GUESSING it possibly could be arthritis! Yes...arthritis in a 4 year old!!! It broke my heart! (Almost my back too- it is NOT easy carrying around a 42 pound 4 year old.)
So today - pawpaw volunteered to come over and hang out with Coby. Pawpaw called a few minutes ago - and guess what?! Coby was up walking around! YEA!!! I was SO happy to hear it - just worry he may "over do it!"
And still waiting waiting waiting on the dr office to call back and let us know what the blood work says. I can't help but wonder if this is something that will happen again and again, or if this was just a one time thing!?
One more thing for mommy to worry about.....these kids have NO clue how many gray hairs they have given me!!!
