Now Reading: A Bizarre Tuesday: Coughing and Limping… and Laughing?
November 21, 2012
Tues 8:44pm — The end of a bizarre day.
I took the day off from work to hang with the wife while Kyle was in school. That was kinda nice. 🙂
But in Kyle news… Kyle’s had a lingering bad cough for about a week now. No other symptoms, just a cough.
Then this morning, from out of nowhere. He started limping pretty badly with his right leg, heavily favoring his left leg.
He went thru a stretch a few years back when he went thru phases where he’d have an unexplained limp. It would last a few weeks/months. We’d run around getting X-rays and visiting Drs with no answers and then it would just go away on its own and return 6 months later. I mentioned the limp on the AD FB page last year and a bunch of people said it could be growing pains.
So today I was chalking it up to growing pains and hoping that’s all it was and we wouldn’t be spending Black Friday at the Drs office.
So about 7:30pm today it was just a bizarrely comical scene at the ol’ AD household.
The cough sounded PAINFUL. The limp looked PAINFUL and my son is coughing and laughing and jumping on his bed while favoring his left leg and laughing.
And the wife is like “oh yeah he’s in A LOT of pain, yeah right. He’s been to enough Drs lately. I’m not bringing him for this.”
It was pretty funny.
Oh and during his bath tonight I noticed that his right big toe might be a little swollen and his toe nail is a little grey so the limp might be from that…although he didn’t really flinch when I touched it. So who knows? If only he could tell us.
That’s all I got to report tonight. That’s all i really wanted to say. He just fell asleep in our bedroom on our bed after watching “Jack’s Big Music Show” and I’m writing this on my iPhone under the covers in the dark so I don’t disturb the King.
He’s got no school til Monday for the Thanksgiving break so it should be a LONG week.
There’s a lot of other things going on too, issues with his behavior at school, some complaints about the school and its class size this year, and some issues with his breath holding, but that’s way too much for one blog post. So I’ll save that for another day.
Today’s post was meant to be about limping, coughing, and laughing.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
