Halfway There!

3 Weeks from ToDaY we will be at Disney World!  Woohoo!!!

That's the good news.  Then, there is Carson.

He's not exactly bad news.

He's more "Take Up A Lot of Time" news.

Short version of the story: (Cue laughter at the thought I could make any story short.)  Carson went to a basketball camp the first week of January.  The Wednesday or Thursday of camp, he began limping.  Sunday, he ran a 3-mile race.   What normally takes him about 24 minutes took him over 30.  Because I'm in the finals for the "Mom of the Year" award, I assumed he just wasn't applying himself.  Tony took him to basketball that afternoon.

Normally, the little kids don't get to play because it's for the dads.  This particular Sunday didn't have many adult participates so Carson got to play.  After basketball, Tony came in and explained to me how Carson had limped the entire time.  Maybe there was something going on?

Cut to PT's office:  After a series of tests, we find out that, not only has Carson whacked out his hip, he has fairly severe hypoflexibility.  For the non-medical blog readers, hypolflexibility means "the boy don't bend" which is apparently a pretty big deal to correct BEFORE he hits serious growth spurts.

What does all of this mean?

Carson has to stretch 3 times a day, every day, for pretty much forever.  He also has to do exercises once a day, 5 days a week for at least a month.  And, until he can get back to his normal running routine, he (which translates "we") goes to the pool for training 4 times a week.

That is the short (pretty short, right?) version of the Carson story.  Pray for us:  That he'll do what's necessary for him to get better.  That he will get better.  That I won't completely lose my patience with him.

But, yah, did I mention we leave for Disney World in 3 weeks?
