school vacation extended

Last day of school vacation. Jacob's will be extended. Over the last few days he has been complaining of his hip hurting. Earlier yesterday it was getting increasingly worse. By late afternoon he was barely walking, and on crutches. Last night was a really difficult night for him. He woke at 2AM in incredible pain. I gave him some naproxyn and put the heating pad on his hip. He cannot put any weight on his leg at all. I don't even know what is causing this. I paged the pedi rheumatologist today and she upped his naproxyn and is going to see him in the morning.

If he doesn't improve I don't know how he is going to do in school this week. He can't even lift his leg to do a step. His classroom is on the top floor of the school and there is no elevator.
