Seems like Rain

There's an old saying "When it rains, it pours." That seems so true.

I was sick all summer, mostly. I'm feeling so much better now.

Now, the Princess is on crutches. On Wednesday at the school softball game, she and another teammate had a collision in the dugout. She twisted her knee. The trainer said that her knee cap "sub-flexed." So, we iced it and she played the 2nd half of the game.

On Thursday, she practiced for two hours. She was practicing at 3rd base and went to pivot to throw the ball to 1st base and she fell. We got her to the dugout. Her knee was already swollen.

Tony took me to Girl Scouts and took the Princess to Urgent Care. When they came to Girl Scouts to pick me up, the Princess was on crutches and had a immobilizer on her knee. She also had the diagnosis of Osgood-Schlatter Disease.

Osgood-Schlatter is where the tendon is pulling on the bone in her leg incorrectly. Fortunately, it is very common in athletic kids. Typically, girls outgrow it by the time they are 14. The Princess just turned 13.... so we have a little while to grow still. :) 

She's out of softball for a week. We have to go to the Sports Medicine doctor on Monday. Hopefully they will say that after the week she will be released to play again. They only have 4-5 games left, and I'd hate for her to miss them....since it is her 8th grade year (final games of middle school).
