Have him sit with his hips squarely against a wall and measure each leg on the floor. If the "dragging" leg is longer then that's probably the problem. Again, it might work itself out as he grows and keeps working those muscles, but if it's affecting his gait you'll want to do something to prevent damage to his hips & back in the long run. So basically, don't worry, but don't put off seeing a specialist if it's warranted.
    Thanks. He has been walking for about a month and a half now and I think it is getting worse, not better. I kept waiting for him to grow out of it, but finally figured I better just get it checked out. A friend mentioned the other day that she thinks it is a longer leg issue too, so I will have to measure it, though I suppose that would show up in the x-rays. I am hoping that it is nothing with his actual bones and that they can give me some exercises or something to help him strengthen the muscles in that leg. That would be my best case scenario. I am not very good at the wait and see approach We have been referred to a specialist, but I still haven't heard from them and it will probably be at least a month to get in to see him at this time of year, so maybe it will resolve itself in that time. I think it is actually causing him some pain though, cause sometimes he will whimper cry and crawl into my lap, and it makes him really happy if I massage his feet and legs, so maybe muscle spasms of some sort.....or he just likes massage

    Anyways, you may be able to tell this has been on my mind a lot lately, I am considering chasing down the occupational therapist at the CDC this morning when I drop DS1 off for preschool and getting her to watch him walk, just to see if she thinks it is a big deal or not......but I dont want to be THAT mom!

    Thank you. I am glad it was not suicide, but I feel bad that it could have been helped if someone had checked in on her.

    It is never bad to be concerned for your kids

    Ben needs a circumcision. He saw the urologist yesterday about his tight foreskin and he for sure needs a circ. I'm okay with that, I'm just not okay with the painful recovery.

    I'm so sorry! That is a difficult one.

    It seems like surgery is the big topic here today....this morning Dave (my husband) had his snoring surgery. (Or rather, his anti-snoring surgery.) Last yesterday they moved it from 3:00 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. so I couldn't even go with him in the morning because I had to get the kids to school. I raced into the city right afterwards and got there just as he was asking for me.

    The poor guy was bleeding all day, it finally stopped about half an hour ago. He won't be able to breathe through his nose for maybe as long as a week, and and no beers because he's on antibiotics! They say in 6-8 weeks the snoring will go away, though, and then we begin our new happy lives.

    I know some of you have snoring husbands so I'll keep you posted. He was miserable all day today but seemed to feel better once the bleeding stopped.

    I went out to the store to get some stuff for him and put Juliet in charge of his welfare. Omg! She was so cute. She brought him teddy bears, an armrest, his medicine, and kept checking on him to make sure he was okay. Both the kids were so sweet and snuggly tonight. Makes me proud.

    Where is everyone today? I have men working in my kitchen right now and it has made for a very long morning. I will be so glad when the project is finished.

    Laurie, please do keep me posted on the surgery. If it is a success I might try to coax DH into it.

    I will. He's already feeling SO much better and even beginning to breathe through his nose again a wee bit.

    How much bleeding is there? That will freak DH out. I won't tell him about the bleeding part.
