In about one hour I’m outta the office and on my way to a much needed long weekend. My hope is that it will be as inviting and relaxing as I’m in need of. We aren’t planning on going anywhere or doing anything major. With the increase in gas prices and food prices we can’t really afford to endeavor a big adventure but we can find plenty right here in our little home town to keep us occupied.
We do have one thing this afternoon that may throw a ringer in our ability to do much of anything this weekend but hopefully it will only be a temporary setback and we’ll be able to get back on track quickly. Lil Man has an appointment with a Podiatrist this afternoon. Several weeks ago he got what looked like a little blister on the back of his foot. It soon turned into a little place that resembled a callus only it continued to grow and got really hard. At Lil Man’s 15 month checkup we showed it to his doctor and Dr C felt like it wasn’t too much to be concerned with and suggested that we soak his foot in warm water to soften up the spot and then try to scrape it off … much like you would a callus. We tried that a couple of times but the spot refused to come off or break free. We left it alone. We decided that medical intervention was needed and we would just keep an eye on it until his checkup in July and have Dr C remove it then. Well … over this past weekend it started doing some really funky stuff and looked BAD. Lil Man would favor the outside of his foot when he walked and seemed to be limping a bit so I made an appointment with Dr B who is a Podiatrist who specializes in children’s foot needs. Whatever this mystery spot is, it has really started bothering Lil Man. He favors his left foot, walks on the outside of his right foot, and at times he will just sit down and rub his foot like he is in pain. Today hopefully that will all stop and we’ll finally find out what this mystery spot is … and get it taken care of. Here’s a shot of what it looks like … I’ll try to update when we figure out what’s going on.
Hope everyone has an awesome fun filled Memorial Day weekend!!
