So it looks like Jeremy's hip caught a cold, but it left in time for him to be home for Thanksgiving. He had a fever of 103 Tuesday night, but was well enough to come home on Wednesday afternoon! Apparently the cold was causing fluid to build up in his hip and that is why he couldn't walk or apply pressure anywhere on his leg. The doctors took some of that fluid out to get a culture of it and after that, he felt fine. They kept him there though because of the fevers and because they still weren't sure if it was an infection that they would need to flush out with surgery or an inflammation that would eventually go away on its own. In the end (or at least the way I understood it) the doctors think it was a viral infection that ran it's course and is now gone. So he's home and just as crazy and cute as ever!
It was a real blessing that it happened when it did. If it had been a week earlier or later we'd have gone nuts. Nathan would be in school and I'd have had to stay at the hospital with him and have the other two kids. STRESS! With this timing it was during break so Nathan could stay there while I took care of the other two at home and visited Jeremy when I could. Plus, my parents were here for Thanksgiving and were a huge help to us with the whole thing.
Thank you mom and dad!
So now things are back to normal and life goes on. . . .
