Another leg problem BUT

This time it's not me..It's Parker.

Throughout the night Parker woke up, crying, saying his leg hurt. I thought maybe his leg was just falling asleep so I would rub it for him and he'd drift off again. Then he would wake up an hour or 2 later with the same complaint. This cycle went on a 3-4 times. This morning when he tried to get out of bed, he cried out and couldn't put any weight down. He was in a lot of pain.

Cory came home and we decided to take Parker to the doctor. At first, the doctor was worried about SCFE, but after the xrays came back normal, he wasn't really sure. The doctor said that because the pain came on so suddenly and because Parker can't put any weight down (he fell in the waiting room trying to stand and take a step), that is concerning to him. He said it still could be SCFE, could be just a bad muscle strain, or could be some kind of necrotic bone problem going on. He really wanted Parker to see an Orthopedic doctor today or tomorrow.

So, our appointment is tomorrow and we will see what is going on. Until then, Parker is resting in bed since he can't walk anyway, and taking Ibuprofen to help with the pain. He's watching a lot of TV and playing computer games.


Please keep the little guy in your prayers that everything will be okay.

I hope he feels better soon! I used to get really bad "growing pains" in my legs as a child and I would cry and not bear weight. It was horrible for my parents!

Training too hard for the 50 yard dash huh? :-) Saying a little prayer for Parker tonight. Keep me updated cause I'll be thinking of him all day. Let me know if you need anything too. Give Parker a hug for his Auntie!
