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.
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.
