Wow!!! I can't believe how long it is since I have last been on here. So much has happened. Firstly I was poorly, then Kayleigh my middle one had a horrible virus that the Doctor said would go away in a week but she didn't need antibiotics. The second week I took her back and was given antibiotics and told she should have had them sooner.
Next came Easter and I took the kids down to my parents in Berkshire and my sister came over from the US so we had loads of day trips out with her.
We came home and the kids went back to school and Kayleigh started complaining her foot hurt to walk on but me being me just told her it was growing pains and she would be OK in a couple of days. Well 2 days later she couldn't walk on her foot so another trip to the GP where she told us it was tendonitus and to go and rest it at home but walk on it to keep it strong. Another 2 days passed and her foot was boiling hot and red then half and hour later it was freezing cold and purple so I took her to A&E where the receptionist told me I shouldn't be there but at my own GP because it had been going on for a while. I told her I wanted it looking at and was prepared to wait all day if I had to. We were seen within 20 minutes and taken through to a Doctor to look at it. The Dr sent her for X-Rays and blood tests but the results came back clear. She still wasn't happy that Kayleigh couldn't put her weight on her foot so got another Dr for a second opinion. He poked and prodded at Kayleighs heal had a look at the X-Rays and told us she has Sever's disease and would need to rest it for at least 2 weeks. She now has a cast on her leg and will be in it until she goes to the fracture clinic on 26th May when hopefully they will say she can have it removed.
Below is a photo of Kayleigh with her cast on. She is holding some cards she had been sent by Julie and Sally from Cardmaking and papercraft forum.
