THAT large lump would be a blood clot in our 11 year old son's leg.
That's him facing me; he is sitting in a wheelchair, his left leg is in blue sweats and that's his right leg exposed AND THAT large lump is about a tennis ball size growth/blood clot on his leg; it is now totally black and blue and the bruising is down to his ankle. I am told he was literally screaming at school as the swelling just continued to increase.
They have determined it is not acute; we are praying that ice, elevation and Motrin around the clock help the body absorb the blood...if not...um, it'll be a trip to the emergency room.
He cannot walk on his leg for a couple of days; we don't want to risk dislodging the clot or causing it to bleed more.
And today (Monday morning) we have a follow-up doctor's appointment, anxious to hear what they say.
All that brings me to say the beautiful TLT ladies will be having a blog hop tomorrow but due to these unforeseen circumstances, I will not be participating. BUT I will be back on Wednesday with a *new* Ladybug Crafts Ink card.
So tomorrow morning, be sure to check out the hop HERE and then come back to visit, I do have a few things planned this week!
