Here's the scoop...
Reese is still not walking :( :( :(
But I am hopeful that he will... again... someday... walk.
I have had my bouts with paranoia, that he will be 15 and have to crawl home from school because the bus couldn't see him and passed him up... Again... because he was on his hands and knees. Or he will end up one of those four legged walking people... Like that family that just can't walk upright... I bet we could get on Opera though, if Reese never stops crawling... We just might have a shot at T.V.!... It is far fetched... Oooo we could play fetch?!... We could start putting him out to go to the bathroom? We will never have to potty train... Ok enough... He is our son and just because he is temporarily acting like a puppy doesn't mean he is one.
Really though it is so sad, I hate to see him frustrated and struggling. But I do think it is just one of those surprise pop up things that happen when you are a parent... One of the challenges that come with the territory, but you don't really expect. It is a really hard part of the job... When something happens to your kid. And you just have to learn as you go. Not always easy, these little lessons, and I don't believe I will ever know everything, but I do hope I get better at knowing what to do or how to react or to accept the situation... All these things that seasoned moms seem so good at, I hope I get there someday.
I think with this situation, this particular time, at this point I am at that sort of acceptance spot, where I just know it is all going to work out. We have seen the doctors enough times and had enough x-rays and talked to the right moms who have been trough similar situations (thanks Amy) that I am just going to relax and let his achy parts heal and give him lots of kisses in the meantime and be grateful that it is not worse.
And once again accept the fact that my whole life from here on out is mainly about him and everything else is next in line. So, I just need to get over the Me-me stuff and just let him drive me crazy for the next few weeks... I am just glad he is here to do it.
