Riding the roller coaster

Thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post.
Things are much better with Bug this week.
We got the test results back and they were all negative for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Thursday was hell, Friday was a bit better and Saturday he was like a normal kid.
He was stiff Saturday night but by Sunday morning he was fine.
Sunday night after doing school work at the kitchen table he complained about his legs.
He has been stiff all day today and not wanting to walk around.
The doctor is pretty sure it is a virus at this point but said he would confer with a Rheumatoligist just to be safe.
Bug has a pretty big cough going on now along with a lot of snot.
I'm cautiously optimistic that he is on the mend.
I swear this parenting thing is not for wussies.

I'm so glad that Bug is on the up side of this. I would have been worried sick.

Hell No - parenting ain't for wimps!

Hugs - Lindy

Thank you for the update Autumn - we've been saying prayers every night hoping its nothing serious, glad to hear he's probably on the mend.
You're right about that - actually having the kid is the easy part!

Oh, gosh, I know that you were terrified. After reading the last post, I was terrified for you. So glad it's not RA. Hang in there, and keep us updated!

A virus does that?? Wow... I never heard of that before. Strange. Gosh, I sure hope he keeps getting better and better each day... that's just too darn scary!
Poor little guy...
Big hugs for both of you guys!

I'll pray it's something he gets over quickly. Hope he's much better soon. And you're right - parenting is not for wussies!!
