EJ has been complaining of the occasional knee pain, usually after soccer or baseball. So at his physical today he brought it up with the doctor, who confirmed what I expected... osgood schlatters disease. A very complicated name for growing pains. Kaleigh has Osgood Schlatters, so I knew the symptoms.

In the car ride home, EJ was proud to announce his new diagnosis to all the siblings. Between his own difficulty in remembering exactly what it was, and not pronouncing it correctly, the conversation that followed was hilarious. The final diagnosis from the kids actually had me laughing so hard I almost drove the car off the road.

So it is now confirmed... EJ is suffering from Ostrich Bladder disease.

I hope EJ's growing pains don't last too long. Those ostriches can be a real pain in the neck, huh?

God bless,

PS-And a big congratulations to your new first communicant!
