A Foot Update

Well, we had Bug's podiatrist appointment this morning, and got some good news! He said that he didn't think that the growth plate was broken but just had "major trauma." (I also am suffering from "major trauma", I HATE it when one of my kidlets is hurt and I can't fix it! I'm the Mom, I am supposed to fix everything!) Those ER docs sure seem to always make a big deal out of everything. But I guess I would want it that way if it had been serious! Better safe than sorry. She still has to use her crutches for at least 2 more weeks, but can put pressure on it when she walks. He said that it can take as long as a break to heal though, so not to expect it to feel 100% for about 4-6 weeks! WOW! So, now it is a wait and see type of thing, but I am DEFINITELY relieved!
