Drama Queen

So, this is my "injured" princess leaving the urgent care center because she refused to walk on her foot since Friday afternoon when her foot was either stepped on or she stubbed her toe at camp (I pity poor Elizabeth who supposedly did this to her - whichever camper that may be!).

At any rate, I was pretty convinced that nothing was wrong - no swelling, no bruising, and no wincing when the foot was examined. After two days she was still hopping and crawling around like the foot was simply of no use. Even the temptation of visiting Columbia to see her cousins Parker and Sarah didn't get her on her feet. She hopped or scooted on her butt all over Columbia. Then the sadness of missing a swim playdate with Leila was still not temptation enough to get up and walk. So, off we go to urgent care this afternoon. A $35 copay later and a swell time impressing the young, female doctors with ability to (now) hop on both feet! I guess it took a certified, medical professional to convince her it was once again safe to step on the foot. In this picture she is holding the coupon for the "free"(aka $35) ice cream at Chik-Fil-A. At least she will be able to enjoy it on two feet!
