We thought it was a sprain.

I thought I was going to be really good at posting once a week and it's now been 2 1/2 months....oops.  Here's to trying again!

In February, our sweet girl stepped off a rock and twisted her ankle.  It swelled up pretty good and was horrible to walk on, but like any great parent, we just thought we'd watch it....well, 7 weeks later it still wasn't much better and so we took her to the doctor.

And this is what happened.....
she had a crack in the growth plate of her ankle.  Wowzers.
In my defense, big sprains can take FOREVER to heal.  And I did call medical professionals....pinky swear.  And we did wrap it when she did anything active.

But still......
The only real bummer was she missed out on running in a 5K that we were super excited about, but then again, she did get pushed in a chariot by her grandparents!

So next time your kid complains of an injury for more than a day or 2....maybe get it checked out.
Yours truly,
Mom of the Year
