I have been very distressed since Thanksgiving Eve. My daughter's complaints of pain had diminished a bit since the procedure, which is absolutely great news! She reports that the pain was greater prior to the procedure. So I am thinking...SUCCESS!

But Wednesday night, during the seasoning, stuffing, mixing, prepping of the turkey, mushrooms, stuffing and pumpkin pie making, she complained of mild pain, but didn't need any over the counter pain relief, but just wanted me to know that she was feeling a bit uncomfortable.

By lunchtime Thanksgiving Day, she assured me that she certainly needed some relief from the pain, but she wanted me to check her leg. My heart sank. I winced and tried to stifle my gasp as I was assessing the condition of her leg. It was covered in black and blue bruising from her buttocks to behind her knee.

My immediate reaction was to call the surgeon's office, but realized, it is a holiday and I would end up speaking to someone who would have absolutely no knowledge of my daughter's history and would probably just tell me to call back on Friday.

Friday morning, I was stressing about the bruising. She has never had such intense bruising from her previous procedures. As I was getting ready to head to our pediatrician for annual flu shots when it hit me!

She has been taking a daily dose of aspirin. Of course! That HAD to be the answer. She has never bruised before because she has never taken aspirin before. My pediatrician confirmed my reasoning.

Lesson learned: I was not expecting for her leg to look so battered and bruised. It was like a mini-shock. It would have been nice to have known beforehand that there was a likelihood that something like this could happen. But no one has a crystal ball.
