Well, praise the Lord, Reagan is going to live. She has something called toxic synovitis, a viral infection that usually settles in the hip joint. You can google it for more information. Believe me, I did when I got home. The doctor said it is just like a cold or a stomach bug and has to run its course. The onset is pretty quick, causing the child to limp, and becomes more severe, which almost prohibits walking altogether. It lasts about 4 to 5 days and taking an inflammatory medication like Motrin should lessen the pain.
The doctor did do blood work and Reagan did awesome. All of her counts were completely normal. What a relief!
I certainly gave God praise today and I have hugged Reagan a little more than I normally do.
Reagan wanted a fruit smoothie from Sonic as a treat for having to go to the doctor today and I was happy to oblige. I just enjoyed the time with her and wasn't quite so annoyed that she talked and talked and talked and talked and talked....If you know Reagan well, you know what I mean.
Tonight she is already walking so much better. She has a slight limp but she says that it is not really hurting anymore. I imagine the Motrin is helping though.
Thank you for praying for her today and for all the sweet comments sent through Facebook or emails.
