My precious 4 yr old boy is seeing the chiropractor for treatment following a pretty bad car accident 6 weeks ago. Thankfully the car seat and the Honda Odyssey kept him (mostly) safe, but he has some pretty typical aches and pains.
Today the chiro was palpating DS's back in an area he consistently complains about...and the doc found a "mass". He said it's clearly not muscular, it's close to the spine, and about golf-ball size; he had me feel it, and I nearly lost it.
He said we should see the pediatrician asap to have it checked; we have an appt tomorrow morning at 11:30. In the meantime, this is a shameless appeal for some mama love and positive energy to be sent my way! My best friend (and DS's Godmother) is out of the country and DH is dealing with some pretty serious injuries from the wreck, so my usual support system isn't very available. I'm PMS'ing pretty hard, and the fear of the unknown, added to the stress of the last few weeks has me just about losing it totally!
Sending you lots of positive vibes. And a big hug! I hope everything turns out to be fine.
