Growing pains... Not just an '80's sitcom. Right? :) There are emotional, and physical growing pains in all aspects of life. They are just different for every child in just about every situation. My daughter, S., has actual growing pains in her legs. Since coming home, 3 years ago, she has grown nearly 12 inches. That's a lot. It's because of the nutrition, and quite possibly the hormones in our food here in the U.S. However, don't quote me on that. I have no official research or anything to back that up, just mother's intuition. ;) Every single night, S.'s legs hurt. Every night. I am consulting with several doctors. They still believe it is growing pains. I am looking into it further though. She wants children's pain reliever every night. As her mother, I worry about this. Should she have children's pain reliever every single night? I consulted a doctor. The doctor said Tylenol can be given every night, but Ibuprofen can only be given twice a week. I would have guessed the opposite. Hmmm. I do worry about the situation. I pray about it. I consult doctors, family, and friends about it. I'll keep you posted as to how that turns out.
