Nothing good

I took Wyatt to the doctor today.

He didn't have anything good to say.

When I told him that Wyatt was just running and his knee cap just slipped out of place, instead of looking at the hurt knee he went straight to the one that has already healed.

When he moved Wyatt's leg around and making him bend it, he showed me how Wyatt's knee cap is still moving out of place every time it's bent.

Apparently the tendons on the outsides of his knees are too tight and pulling on the knee cap every time he bends his knees. If nothing is done about it his knees will continue to dislocate and the constant movement will wear down the under side of the knee cap.

On February 23 they're going to operate on his right knee (since it's already sore and swollen). Then after that is all healed up the doctor will be doing the same thing to his left knee.

Needless to say, none of us are too thrilled with today's appointment.
