Yesterday my mom and I traveled to Indianapolis to see a specialist at Riley Children's Hospital for all the pain McCartney has been experiencing in her legs. We were originally told it was probably post-streptococcal arthritis, but yesterday we found it is a joint issue that has to do with her leg muscles. The doctor was FABULOUS and knew right away what we were dealing with. Our appointment lasted almost 2 hours. It was nice to be able to talk and have things explained and not feel like a herd of cattle being moved through the office.
McCartney will have to have some physical therapy and return in 8 weeks to see her progress. I am thrilled and I see an end to the chronic pain soon. I hope she can overcome this and enjoy her summer.
