Maddie had been complaining about foot pain on and off for as long as I can remember. More recently it was getting so bad she could walk after trying to play half a soccer game so we finally went in to get it checked.
So Maddie missed the first part of school and we went to our family dr who took x-rays. Later the dr called satin he thinks there could be a small fracture or arthritis and referred us to the foot specialist. So in the afternoon I went got Maddie out of school again. And just as they were taking her back to the examination room I got a phone call from the nurse at westridge.
Apparently garen ran under the low end if the playground and I guess forgot that he had grown and he ran right into the bottom of the metal stairs making a few gashes in his head.
So I left Maddie aline to get yet foot X-rayed again and headed to pick up garen. I then brought garen, bloody icepack and all, back to Maddies appointment with me.
Through X-rays and rating her pain in different places and talking about her history they said she has tarsal coalition. Pretty much 2 bones are connected with cartilage that shouldn't be and it causes pain. Surgery is the only real fix in this situation.
Sometimes we go a whole year without a dr appointment and today Maddie got 2 very expensive ones in one day. Glad we know what the problem is, now to get it fixed...
After our long unexpected afternoon I had to ( gratefully) cancel my 2 soccer practices.
