sneaky bleeder

The last few days Zander has been having an issue with his left knee. Not all the time, just when he kneels down. The first time I noticed it, I didn't really think much of it. But then I saw a pattern, he kneels down and the second his knee hits the ground, he would cry and when he stands up he would limp away. But within seconds he was fine again, playing, running, no limping. We started to infuse him, a couple times a day. But after three days, he is still crying when he kneels down.
This is the first time I haven't been able to figure out what is wrong with him. He has no visible bruising (no more than usual) on his knee, it isn't swollen, hot, and he still has perfect range of motion. I broke down today and called the HTC. Basically, our fantastic nurse said we are doing everything right. We should infuse today and again tomorrow (which is a normal prophy day). If he is still having an issue we will go up to the center on Monday. She said it might be a micro-bleed into his joint...but who knows.

Time and time again Zander shows us that he likes to do things just a little different, he can't seem to just get a "normal" bleed. We love him. Hope we get whatever this is under control.
