The Mysterious Limp

I don't have the time to write as much as I'd like, but I just wanted to write a quick post to ask for some prayers...

Elijah has been limping since Wednesday evening and we're trying to find out why.  We've been to a doctor twice since (the ER and a pediatrician), with no clear answers.

He did fall Wednesday morning, but didn't start limping until after a nap that day at four.

We were concerned that he could have had a seizure that caused him to be limping, but it sounds like his neurologist doesn't think that's the case.  I hope that is not the case.

Anyway, we're heading out in a few minutes to get an x-ray of his legs (finally!) and if they don't find anything there, we'll be doing an MRI to try to figure out why he has been limping since Wednesday. If we do end up doing an MRI, we'll probably take a scan of his brain as well since he'd already need to be sedated. (And you all know how crazy we are about sedation).

The poor guy hasn't been able to eat all day either!

We'd just like some prayers that we can get to the root of the problem and that he'd respond favorably to sedation. Thanks. :)

P.S. Thanks to all of you new visitors!  I've had so many comments since last night. It's made a stressful day a little happier.

My thoughts are with you. You are such a strong Mom! I hope the doctor can uncover the cause of the limping today.
