Wow Friday already

It feels so weird now that the boys are home. It makes it harder to know what day it is lol.

OK so yesterday we went to Nashville for John's dr appointment at the orthopedist and it went well. His Dr was awesome and it turns out that John has Osgood Schlatter Disease. It's not as bad as it sounds thankfully. The tendon, which is controlled by his quad muscle is a little weak and his patella (kneecap) slides left to right. He needs to keep his knee brace on at all times and do specific exercises and everything should be fine. Apparently this disease hits many children who are active and having a growth spurt. John grew almost 3 inches in about 2 months. She says according to the x-rays he has a lot more growing to do so our original estimate of him being around 6 foot is probably right on the money.

Gotta go
