Rarely Boring

This week Jackson has been high maintenance as he recovers from having his tonsils out. Thankfully I think the worst is finally behind him, but he has a long way to go to be 100%.  

And yesterday Matthew was being pretty high maintenance.  First I noticed that he was just generally fussy.  Then I realized he wouldn't stand, which was weird since that is all he has wanted to do as of late.  Then I realized he wasn't crawling around.  Finally it dawned on me that it was time to call the doctor.  Darren took Matthew to the after hours pediatrician last night, and she suspected that Matthew may have a broken bone in his leg, ankle or foot.  So, first thing this morning, Darren took him in to get x-rays.  Surprisingly, we were able to get Matthew's renal ultrasound done at the same time instead of later this afternoon.  And now we hear from the pediatrician about Matthew's leg and the nephrologist about Matthew's ultrasound and labs. 

It is rarely boring in the Hoy House! 

Mid-Day Update-- X-rays came back clean, so Matthew likely has a sprain or pulled muscle.  If he's still struggling early next week, we'll take him to the pediatric orthopedist.  Matthew's renal ultrasound was 'stable' meaning no change from the last time, but there was an abnormal reading in his blood work that they want to get rechecked (in hope that it was a lab error).
