When you hear hoof beats...

So. I mentioned it to my doctor. She didn’t even know what it was. She didn’t think it was a possibility. Around this time the little kiddo dislocated his shoulder. He was goofing off and rolled off the couch. He stood up and his shoulder was pointing the wrong way. I expected him to start screaming. Instead he just braced and kind of pushed it back in. I wasn’t sure what to do. Dislocations hurt. And people don’t generally just put them back and it’s not big deal. He did complain a little of pain and he was a little swollen but he was moving and not complaining  much and pain went away with Ibuprophen so we didn’t do much.

At this point I’m reading more about EDS and joint  hyper mobility and learning that you can damage your joints  doing this stuff. So i made an appointment with Little kiddos doctor. I thought she’d tell him to stop bending everything. Instead she said. Oh. Ehlers Danlos. We’ll send you to genetics.
