After FOUR blissful nights of sleep Dalton woke up FIVE TIMES last night crying with his leg. He was tired and cranky today, naturally. I got him to take a nap only for him to wake up within half an hour crying. When it was time to do his stretches he seemed to be a lot tighter and he cried and wanted me to stop. At this point we were pushing almost 4pm so I put in a call to Dr. Standard's office and left a message on the patient line. A resident doctor called me back within less than an hour and said that she had talked w/Dr. Standard and he feels that maybe we've just overdone it w/PT and stretching for us to be non weight bearing for 48 hours...no stretching, no PT...only wheelchair, couch, or bed. He said to give him motrin for 24 hours, even though he had said for us not to give it to him when we were up there earlier this month..he said for short amounts of time (ie: running a high fever, bad pain) it was ok. They told me they would be on call all weekend so if we needed them just to call.
I just don't understand what went wrong because I was really feeling like we were on the right track and we didn't really do anything any different yesterday than we have been doing. We did add in some water exercises (8, to be exact) but I just don't think that's the problem.
Hopefully the next 48 hours won't be too difficult trying to keep him down.. Yeah, right...who am I kidding? lol
