We met with Dr. Wilhite from Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. He evaluated the MRI results and examined Lily’s ankle.
He was pretty confident, looking at the grow plates in her ankle, that she will be able to avoid surgery!
The catch? She has to wear a walking boot for 6 weeks. She also is considered non-weight bearing and will be crutches or a walker.
Lily will not be able to participate in gym or Girls on the Run until further notice. Learning the ins-and-outs of not being able to walk on her left foot will be an experience for all of us.
She will go back to see Dr. Wilhite at the end of April to have her ankle x-rayed and move forward with this process.
