I'm taking a leave of absence for a while. I'm not sure how long. Yesterday (Sunday) Jeremy suddenly couldn't walk on his right foot, claiming that his knee hurt. We figured he smashed his knee during snack time or jumped off something. We discovered that it hurt worse than just a smash or a bruise. Last night he woke screaming and crying in pain repeatedly. We brought him into our bed so we could comfort him as much as we could. Then this morning Nathan took Jeremy to the doctor's office who then immediately redirected him to the E.R. The doctor thought Jeremy fractured his leg, which would have been nice because then he would have been back home the same day. Instead, when he got to the E.R. they did two sets of X-rays, an ultrasound, and also took fluid from his hip. They think the problem is with his hip, that there is fluid there and is either an infection or an inflammation. If it is the infection then he will have surgery Tuesday morning. If it is the inflammation, then they think it could be a thing where it could come and go. I don't really see one of those being better than the other.
So I will be spending time with Jeremy this week. Also, my parents are in town for Thanksgiving, so they came at just the right time to help. I hope everyone has a great holiday!
