As I type, my poor little sweetheart, HRH, is sleeping on the couch. His gentle snores alternate with little mewling whimpers of misery because he has a tummy bug and we have been up, mostly, since 2 am. This is on top of his walking difficulty.
Last week I explained the problems he was having walking. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to comment on that post, I really appreciate the information.
We were sent to the childrens hospital to have his hips x-rayed. His hips were fine, as were his blood tests (pause for a moment to imagine the screaming and four adults holding him down to take a blood sample *shudders*). The Dr.s felt that his hip joints were inflamed and a mild anti-inflammatory for a week should do the trick. That was last Thursday.
It hasn't. By Monday he was unable to walk, at all! For Monday and Tuesday I had to carry him, he couldn't take any weight on his legs. He improved a little yesterday and this video clip is from late yesterday afternoon.
I am not happy with his progress and was going to bring him back to see our Dr. this morning but now he has this tummy bug so I will wait until tomorrow.The one advantage of him having this bug is that he will get a lot of rest today. I might be stretching the sliver lining there, forgive me, that is called sleep deprivation!
Must dash, I have an overflowing basket of vom-scented laundry to do *sigh*
