Do you want to know what one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen is?
A 15-month old baby with an unexplained limp.
Yes, that’s my boy. We noticed he was limping on Friday night. It was barely perceptible on Saturday, but got worse on Sunday. We ended up taking him to urgent care in a panic, thinking somehow he had fallen and broken his leg without us knowing. (Or without daycare knowing, because you better believe that was the first phone call I made when I saw the limp. But my daycare is awesome. I digress. )
The other saddest thing is two parents holding a 15-month old limping baby down on the x-ray table. I could cry just thinking about it.
But after two doctor visits and a trip to the hospital for x-rays, they didn’t find anything – no apparent infection, no broken bone, no nothing! Just a 15-month old baby with an unexplained limp.
He's getting better though, slowly but surely.
