Fish and Bones

I'm really digging this fish that Eddie drew at school today. I'm hoping it wasn't done at the expense of his math test.

And the following is an X-ray of Luke's knee. No, it's not broken or anything. In fact, the doctor can't find out what's wrong with it. But lately, Luke has had real problems straightening it out, bending it, and it hurts him a lot when he's sleeping or idle. This has been going on for a couple of years now, and we thought at first it was just growing pains. But now Luke limps every morning when he gets up, favors the other leg considerably, and is visibly tight through the hamstring ligaments. We're pretty concerned, so we took him to the orthopedist, but the doctor couldn't find anything wrong. So, next week, we have Luke scheduled for an MRI on his knee. I'll post the pictures if I get any good ones, and let you know how he's doing. In the meantime, say a prayer for our little fellow.
