My thoughts over the last two days have turned to my family. We found out last week that my son who had chronic leg pain has something called transient synovitis of the hip. It was a huge relief because it could have been a lot more serious. He had 2 MRI's all told and the 2nd one showed a reduction in fluid around the hip. Basically, his body when he was sick at some point starts making antibodies to protect itself and then in children fluid accumulates around the hip. This was causing his mysterious leg pain. Interesting, how the body does things for us that sometimes causes us pain. He is much better now and the leg pain is all gone.
I'm very Thankful that he is ok and it's nothing more serious.
I'm thankful for...
Then on Monday my husband had surgery to fix his Tachycardia. He had an ablasion to correct his heart from racing from time to time. His last episode really scared him and this procedure will protect him from having further damage to his heart in the future. This recovery rate is longer the older you get. I brought him home yesterday and I was really worried about him. He is doing well and is not having any problems. Again, I told you I had a lot to be thankful for.
