The Elbow

Last Friday four little words were spoken to me that made my heart stop...."Mom, my elbow hurts."

As many of you know my son, Cody, had elbow surgery the begining of March. His right elbow had been a target joint for him when he was younger. It had been giving him trouble so the doctors decided it was time to fix it surgicaly. The surgery went very well and Cody recovered very well.

As you have probaly guessed by now Cody had his first bleed in that elbow since his surgery. Even after all these years of dealing with hemophilia (26 years to be exact) it was hard for us to determine if this was a bleed or something realted to the surgery. We infused him every 12 hours for a few days and the elbow seems to be better.

Have any of you had to deal with something like this?
