Derek's better every day. He's still not up to standing for long periods of time, but he IS on his feet which is a huge improvement over the weekend. He has a doctor's appointment today. He's definitely getting x-rays & we're hoping to schedule an MRI, as well. We're hopeful neither set of films shows anything unusual, which would mean the issue is indeed muscular & thus 100% treatable. But, regardless of outcome, it's better to know what we're dealing with - whether a lifelong issue or something short-term (as long as he prescribes to the treatment plan this time).
Other than that, about the only newsworthy thing is a small family squabble about our holiday plans. But I won't bore you with the details of the saga that is family dynamics around the holidays. It's the same song & dance every family faces this time of year as Thanksgiving & Christmas approach. In the end, we all survive. And this year will be no different.
