"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Marty's ankle is broken

Last Wednesday, he stepped wrong when he was running in PE. We thought he had sprained it because there was no bruising and only a little swelling. He could bear some weight on it but not much. We ended up taking him in to the doc on Saturday because we knew he would have to be out of PE this week and that meant we needed a doctor's note. At that point, the doc agreed it was sprained. The presentation just did not scream broken bone. Well, last night, he slipped on something on the bathroom floor and after that he couldn't bear any weight on it. Poor kiddo. It wasn't better this morning so we took him to the doctor. The xray showed he had one broken bone on the outside of the ankle. He now has a cast and a cast shoe on his foot. No PE or Tae Kwon Do until he recovers. Whee fun!

I am sorry your boy is hurt. Foot/ankle breaks can be tricky. Hopefully it is a quick recovery.

Oh no, poor guy. My daughter has some ankle problems, they can't figure out what is wrong through.

A break has to be painful, hope it heels quickly!

My dd had to be off her ankle for a week & almost went crazy. She was even allowed to ride her bike, stretch, walk, etc. She just couldn't hop or run on it or dance.

Take care, here from ICLW!
