The Daddy Files - Just Like You


The Guy-I-Dig needs to have a small out-patient surgery in mid-August. Nothing super serious, but keep us in your prayers because there is recovery time needed and he runs his own business.
Harrison often complains about aching in his right leg, one pediatrician said it was "growing pains - which mainly happen at night" but this is often during the day and even more often in the car. Another pediatrician said he doesn't believe in "growing pains" and thought it might be a type of "restless leg syndrome"; apparently Harrison will most likely grow out of this. [back to the growing pain theory...] The pediatrician even did blood tests that didn't show anything Abby Normal.


So as the GID was putting Harrison to bed the other night the subject came up again...
"Daddy, you need an oferation...
I need a oferation!
You go to your doctor for a oferation.
I go to my doctor... I have a BAD leg."

What is up with this leg thing?

Will be thinking of your hubby and family and hoping for a speedy recovery.

LOL - that's kinda funny - tell Mister Harrison I got the worst leg cramps growing up and would be awake all night sometimes. A hot water bottle or heating pad and lot's of lotion would sometimes help them away...

I believe in growing pains. I got them, when there was no other explaination. The good thing is, he WILL outgrow them!
N's been saying she needs to go to the dr for every scrape and cut lately.
Prayers and good thoughts for GID!

I believe in growing pains, too! Em sometimes complains that her legs hurt - it is always at night, when she has had a really busy day, (what day isn't a busy day in the life of a five-year old?) and 'lo and behold after a few weeks of the pains...her jeans are noticeable shorter! She grows an inch or two! It is all related, I'm convinced.

Happy, peaceful thoughts coming your way.

I was told once that it may be that he favors one leg over the other, in this case is it his right leg? That since his muscles are still growing that sometimes they just get tired in that one leg more. Seemed reasonable to me.
