A bit of a Scare
So I had another post I was going to finish today, but it was a bit of a crazy day. Liam woke up at 4:30am last night crying saying his legs hurt and he couldn't walk. Liam can be a bit dramatic, so we didn't think too much of it. I figured maybe he was just sick and achy, so I gave him some Tylenol and put him back to bed. Then all day he was limping around crying that he couldn't walk. He kept pointing at his thigh and saying that's where it hurt. Jack's uncle looked at him who is a doctor and told us it seemed like his hip and we should get him looked at. That got me super worried, so we took him to the ER and he got some blood work and x-rays. It ended up just being transient synovitis, which is an inflammation of the hip usually caused by a virus. I never heard of it before, but it was a much better diagnosis then the other things going through my head. He was just told to rest for a couple days and take Motrin every six hours. I am hoping if he rests tomorrow he will feel better for Halloween. Hopefully if things slow down tomorrow I will finish my review and giveaway of Stinky Kids and the Runaway Scissors book, so stay tuned.
