One Small Lump...

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Hey, this is Charlie posting. Things have been kind of crazy for us this week, and I know Brittany hasn't really had a chance to post. I thought I would share a little bit about one part of our crazy weekend.

On Saturday, I noticed a very small lump on the outside of Savannah's left ankle. It's very close to that bone you can feel sticking out. Any kind of lump is an alarm for me, and after my mom, who is an NICU nurse, was miffed as well, we decided to schedule an appointment with our peditrician.

Since Sundays are closed at our pedi's office (whose pedi actually is open on Sunday, right?), we got in on Monday. Our doctor was off, but we saw another one and he said all the warning signs, or signals for alarm were not present, which was a huge sigh of relief. Nevertheless, he also said that since ankles/feet are not his specialty, we'd have to go see a Pedi Orthopedist to see what needs to be done about the lump. We have that appointment next Tuesday. So everyone say your prayers for our baby girl's foot! I'm sure everything will be okay, but a little prayer never hurts!

Savannah is totally okay and oblivious to the small lump on her ankle. She is able to stand up, walk in her walker, apply pressure, to no effect. She probably doesn't even know it's there!

On a lighter note, our baby girl is crawling all over the place now. She has this funny little shuffle where she plants her right foot and uses that to push off and propel herself forward. She also is imitating what we say occasionally, especially mama, dada, and the occasional cough or raspberry. She's so cute!
