Update on Dalton

First off, our appointment has been changed from 7/6 to 6/29. Dr. Standard is on vacation and they didn't want our appointment to be pushed out so we are in a week earlier.

As for Dalton he's still doing about the same. We have two or 3 good nights a week and then we have a night, like last night, that he tosses and turns a good bit of the night...crying out and reaching for his leg, dozing back off, repeating all this again. Then we'll have a night like last Thursday that he cried basically non-stop until about 2am. He got into pain about 11pm and I tried everything I knew to do...rubbing his leg, motrin, tylenol, warm bath w/lavendar...I even gave him ben@dryl to help him sleep....nothing really seemed to work until at some point he just fell asleep..I'm sure the pain stopped for him to go to sleep but it took a good while.

Anyway....we are still doing PT twice a week as well as exercises here at home the rest of the time. We are having VBS at church this week for 3 hours in the mornings and it's been a busy week.

I've had several people email and ask me about him since I've not updated lately. Thanks for checking in on us.

    Hi. I came across your site while looking up information on Legg-Calve Perthes. My son has been experiencing leg pain and limping since December 24, 2008. He has had X-Ray's, an MRI, and just last week, he had another X-Ray and a bone scan. The result was Legg-Calve Perthes. My son, Marco, is 3 years old, and is on his way to San Antonio today to see what the doctor will tell us regarding his findings. Unfortunately, his is bilateral. Anyway, I hope that Dalton is doint well, and I will definitely keep him in my prayers. I hope that we can share our stories with one another. May the Lord bless you and your family abundantly. Take care... Nancy

  2. Hi Nancy...I don't have anyway to contact you but I'd be glad to talk with you sometime. If you see this comment you can email me directly at I hope that Marco does well in his journey. So sorry about the bilateral diagnosis...I know that is very difficult.
