So is that a ray of sunshine I see??? Well it could be! Almost 2 months after I took joey to the rheumatologist, he finally called me to say there may be an answer to Joeys joint pain. Glad I wasn't holding my breath! There were some dark spots that showed up on the x-rays around his knees, and hips. He is sending us in for more x-rays. Hopefully we can get that done, and hear back from him before summer.(sorry that must have been a little sarcasm slipping in) But all in all I am allowing myself to get slightly excited that there may be an answer. He said that if it is what the thinks it is ( being very vague) that it is not a huge deal, and it is something Joey will outgrow. It will be a painful process, and he won't even start outgrowing it till he is like 15 or 16, but he will outgrow it and be normal, whatever normal is. I am still a little hesitant, just because it doesn't answer all the other questions, but if there are spots on the x-rays that are making the dr.s question.... then at least we are on the right track right???? One baby step at a time. In the mean time, I have to say, he did great at his swim meet!!!! I will find out his official times on Friday and post them for you all! I am one proud mamma!!
