Last week Lydia was jumping on a neighbor's trampoline and came in complaining about her ankle and foot hurting. I brushed it off as a sprain since she was running, dancing and playing with friends 10 minutes later. The next day she came home from school limping so I called our dance carpool and told her Lydia wouldn't be going to dance. I thought it just needed a day or two to heal.
Since then she has been limping around on her left foot tippy toes and complaining on and off but could still break out in a "jig" as she always does and her teacher didn't even notice. After walking to the Vandy game last night my mom mentioned that i should probably just have it looked it.
So I did.
And YEP, after a doc visit and a quick X-ray our girl has a fracture in her ankle. As I understand it, it's where the tibia and fibula meet in the back close to her heel. Which would explain the tippy toes.
We have an appointment with the orthopedist tomorrow. We should know more then.
You would never know anything was wrong with her besides her slight limp and a little complaint here and there.
I am a wife and daughter, sister and friend. I am a Social Worker, a child advocate, and a foster parent. I would like to think that others see me as open minded and I consider myself to be quite liberal and also a Catholic girl (yes, you can be both). I love watching and playing almost all sports. I love 'game night' with friends, Italian food, red wine and an ice cold beer. Most importantly, after years and years of trying to build my family, I am a MOMMY. We did not take the beaten path to our children however; we were placed on the road(s) less traveled. Our journey was long and complicated. It was the most challenging and the hardest, yet most beautiful experience I have endured. I have an incredibly strong faith in the Lord and know that this is all meant to be. This is our life and our story...and I love every minute of it (most of the time)!
