Prayers for my DS

The weekend before last my youngest son (3yrs old) fell off his bed and hurt his knee. There was nothing visible and he walked it off so we more or less forgot about it. Less than 24 hours later he was pretty much hysterical about it so last Monday I took him to our chiro to have him look at it. He evaluated it and checked it over and couldn't find any breaks or real injury, E got his hips and legs adjusted. He was still limping after the appointment so our Chiro told us to watch him and if he was still limping Friday (the 5th) to call him and he'd phone a referral into our primary care doctor.

The 4th & 5th he was acting fine...he was great all weekend. Then Monday he got wimpy again. I kind of blew it off and he got to limping again today. DH took him to convenient care (our doc is out of the office today and full tomorrow). The doctor there thinks it's an infection in his joint. We have a referral to a pediatric orthopedist at a larger hospital in the city...they'll be calling tomorrow to arrange the appointment, probably next week.

I'm super nervous. RA runs HEAVY in DH's family (his great-grandma had RA, his mom has RA and she's only 50 and she has it pretty bad). Please be praying that it's nothing serious and pray for us as we go through further testing. I'm not sure what they'll want to do but I'm sure they'll want to do something...
