When it rains it pours
Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease. You can click on the link to find out what that is. We will have to take him to an orthopedic specialist to see how severe things are and go from there so I will keep you posted about it. The good news is that it is treatable, although it can take up to 18-36 months and we caught it early so he shouldn't have any permanent problems as a result. Anyway, that's what is going on with Tanner. I'm sure glad I brought it up to the doctor because I honestly just thought he had pulled a muscle or something. You never know with little kids whether to "bug" the doctor or not. Tanner has been an excellent patient so far. He is a trooper.
