Sorry for the dearth of follow ups. It has been a busy week. After coming back from the hospital, we had a five year old who was prescribed “bed rest” for two weeks. That kind of thing keeps you busy…

Sammy went for an MRI this morning. We’re pretty certain that he is fine, but this is to be sure. Most likely it is something called “irritable hip”, which is essentially a cold that you catch in your hip joint. It goes away on its own, but requires a couple of weeks of keeping off the leg. It might be early stage Perthes disease. This is very unlikely, but having the MRI images as a reference would help if the symptoms ever came back.

I promise to get back to my regularly scheduled India observations tomorrow and talk about the hospital.
