About an hour before bedtime, she started talking about how she hurt her leg today. We sat down with her and told her to show us exactly where it hurt. She pointed to her foot, then stood up and did a little dance to show us how she hurt it. Then we proceeded to read her 78 books, say her prayers, and go to sleep.
She woke up Thursday morning crying that her foot hurt. We rubbed it, then continued on with the normal routine. She didn't mention her foot again, until right before we were all getting ready to walk out the door. We needed to change her pull-up but she wouldn't put any weight on her right foot and could barely walk.
We briefly checked it out again, but it wasn't bruised or swollen. We made the quick decision that she would come to work with me and I would call the pediatrician as soon as they opened.
For the first hour, she complained her foot hurt and still wouldn't put any weight on it. I kept thinking "it's probably just sprained," but since it was her right side, I wanted to be sure it wasn't anything more serious. I will admit that I did NOT want to pay for an x-ray so I was really hoping the pediatrician would be able to confirm what I was thinking. I was able to get an appointment for 11:20 that morning.
I had walked out of the office to get something off the printer and walked back in to find Addison spinning in my office chair. And either immediately before that or very soon after, she had to run across the hall to "show Laura something" with no problems with her foot. I gathered up some work to do in the afternoon and turned my back to pack up my laptop. Next thing I knew, I heard "oh hi Addie" from down the hall. I looked out my door, and she had walked pretty much the entire hallway.
Thankfully, that was pretty much the end of it. We got home. She took a nap (after I promised a trip to the playground if she slept for 2 hours). I worked. She woke up exactly 2 hours later. We went to the playground.
Even though this definitely threw a wrench in our daily routine, we are incredibly thankful that it was nothing more serious!
