and the bad. We went to Primary Children's today for what I thought was an appointment with a pediatric orthopedic doctor (are they all surgeon's?). As most of you know Dalton is a tip-toe walker and I guess based on what I told the 18 secretaries and medical assistants I spoke to on the phone they determined I needed to see a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon. But no one told me this. Not even the self important surgeon herself until I in all my ignorance asked if she would be doing the surgery. To which she replied "That is why you are here!" "Is this the first you have heard any of this?" Um yeah that is why I have this shocked look on my face. Thanks for asking!!!!!
Well that is not exactly why we were there. We were there because Dalton can not stand balanced on his flat feet and I thought maybe he needed some physical therapy or something. What he got was an xray from the waist down and an appointment for a surgical procedure to uncontracture his achilles tendons on both legs.
He then has to wear cast boots for 6 weeks!
We were all a little shocked and Dalton is very concerned about the casts! There is nothing wrong with him. He is still my sweet Dalton that he was when we left the house this morning at 8:30 am. We just get to worry about the next thing we have to do!!
This was us at the doctors office trying to kill time while waiting for the SURGEON (lest I forget)!! Oh just incase any of you are related to a pediatric orthopedic surgeon I apologize for my offensive comments. (Wear your badge with your credentials if you need to be treated different than any other human!!)
We are wearing red for the parade for the football team this afternoon! Go UTES!
