The Foot Report

I didn't mean to leave anyone hanging and I'm going to do it again at the end of this entry because I really must. Here goes with Shay Shay's foot:

Shayla will be just fine! The MRI showed Severs disease or calcaneal apophysitis and also sesamoiditis. I believe this just means inflammation in two places within her growth plates. The orthopedic doctor believes it’s because of going on pointe for ballet. She’s to take a month off of that, to continue with physical therapy, to wear the specially made inserts that will be here in a couple of weeks and to wear this foot support we got yesterday inside her dance shoes. It doesn’t appear to be serious. Praise be to God!

Now I just (at 3:30 today) what I believe is probably the most incredible news I have ever received in my entire life. It is a dream come true and I'm soooooooooooooo grateful! I cannot say WHAT right now, but tomorrow I promise I will! Praise be to God!!! Earlier this morning I ordered my OSU Football tickets and was shut out of the student tickets for the Penn State, Michigan and Purdue away games, only getting all of the home games. Now I'm simply dancing, and laughing about how sad I was earlier. I must rush off to a meeting right now and tomorrow, as soon as I can, I will be sharing this unbelievable news with Christi's bloggers! God is oh so good!!!!!!! I'm thrilled, but Shayla is in tears about it. And I totally understand.
