I feel like I am in an episode of House, M.D.
We took Charlie in yesterday, and immediately my doctor said she didn't act like a normal baby in the sense that she doesn't move her legs at all. He felt up her spine, and made sure her range of motion was normal, and that all checked out fine.
He said, "Could she not be moving her legs because she is lazy? It's possible. But it's not probable."
He gave it to us straight. The two main things we worry about at this time are Spina Bifida Occulta, and spinal cord tumors.
And he is sending us straight to a neurologist to have some tests run. And he put a rush on it. So we should be meeting with him/her this week.
Not sure when we will get actual answers. But I will keep you posted. It all feels so surreal right now. I'm not sure if I should be at work, or at home... I already feel guilty like I should have been home anyway and maybe I would have noticed it sooner... I don't know.
My hope is that in a few weeks I can look back at this blog and be like, wow, I can't believe I was so freaked out for nothing...
How sad is that?
