He has what????

We just got back from the doctor's office and found out that Brian has Osgood-Schlatter disease. He has a painful knot under his knee that is related to going through a growth spurt.   It should go away when he is done growing, until then he will have to live with it.  Our doctor's visit would have been pretty benign except that they realized that Brian was behind on his immunization shots.  He ended up getting three shots before we left.  I guess that is one way of making sure the kids don't ask to see a doctor.  They may end up getting more than they bargained for.


  1. Aww, sorry Brian's been hurting lately. Glad it'll get better on its own, though!

  2. I hate taking the kids to the doctor, especially when it turns out to be nothing, but I had no idea what this large lump was. I am afraid I did get a little panicky. Thankful it is nothing, technically, although it does hurt.
