tracy Posted November 5, 2005 Report Share Posted November 5, 2005 Well aliitle while ago I wrote about my sons legs giving him problems. Well Wednesday we went to see a specialist. He checked out his legs(touching, watching him walk....)said to the eye things looked good. He did an x-ray, it showed two "shadows" on his right knee, and 1 large "shadow" on his left knee.The doctor said that they were sists(?), but they looked benign. He took another x-ray of the sides of his knees, and it showed them larger then from the front. He said the pain could be a combo of growing pains, plus these sists. He wants an MRI in Akron Childrens hospital, so in case he needs to be sedated, and or if they do find anything. He said most likely nothing will come of them, unless they are to large, that they need to be taken out, and or the are not benign. Plus, on top of this, my husband was laid off again. My systoms of course are acting up do to all this wonderful(NOT) stress. We did pick up another paper route, for which he is doing, atleast I don't need to be out doing that now, get to sleep in a little longer, or atleast till the kids get up.On top of all this, my van needed breaks, so when we took it to the mechanic, we of course, had to drive my husbands van, just got on the freeway home, when the engine blew! Had to sit and wait for a tow, now mech. wants 1500.00 for putting a new one in. I told him we had to wait, due to hubby not working, and we really don't need the second van. So atleast saving a little by not having to carry full coverage on the broken down van.Just can't wait to go see about my son. Atleast the doctor seemed nice, but had no idea about POTS, so we will see. Plus, I am to go see Dr. Fouad on the 28th, can't wait for that, I hope she will put me on flourif everyday, or something. I feel the best when I am on it the week before my period. That used to be my worst time, but with it, I seem to be better.Thanks for listening. Sorry for ranting.TracyHope everyone is doing well.
