The Pics...as promised.

So here is his lower leg...kinda spotted. It started out like a sandpaper feeling rash, then some bug bite looking spots appreared. That was Friday night when I took him to the ER. That's also when he started to complain about the pain in his legs. The red spots on his legs started getting what looked like bruises behind them. Today there are only bruises and no real red spots on his legs. We are still having him sit down for the most of the day and today I started putting cold packs behind his legs while he was sitting to help with the swelling. One of his legs is just about normal size, while the other is still slightly swollen. Good progress though! The funny (?!) thing about his whole thing is that is started with strep throat, which has been basically a non issue from the beginning. The first day he complained of a sore throat, but after that we didn't hear anything from him about it?!
This second picture is of him playing just after he came home from the hospital. He was pretty pale and tired, but he wanted to play with his Transformers a little bit before nap time (which lasted 3 hours)...a record nap for him!

Again, thanks for your prayers and thoughts. I know that your prayers have made a difference!
