Do they look swollen or just fat? I've been told both and I'm not sure if I should talk to the ped or not. She used to be itty bitty, but it seemed like they got bigger overnight. She comes up to me and asks me to kiss her knees and feet and she is also sitting a lot more than before and will hold her feet. Abbie is 20 months old.

They look swollen to me, yes. I wonder if this site would be helpful--I skimmed it and think it looks like it might be. http://www.lymphedemapeople.com/wiki/doku.php?id=lymphedema_in_children

Took her to the ped last night and although it looked great then, they referred her to a rheumatologist to rule everything out.

How is everything going?  Have you had your appointment with the rheumatologist yet?

Blood work looked okay. Waiting on the rheumy to call and schedule an appt. They had to have her records first and they should have gotten them Thursday. She finally got an appointment for Immunology due to the previous set of labs and it's on Wednesday. Hopefully they figure something out. She was bitten by a mosquito Thursday evening and her had is super swollen from it still.
