Damn Sprain

Rough week. Oia still is not walking since her ankle sprain incident last Saturday. In fact, she basically is flat out refusing it. She may stand when helped to her feet but she bears no weight on her right leg at all and stands crying for help. Any attempt to make her walk is under great protest which results in a fussy Oia flopping to her knees to crawl. We've spent a week trying to work her through this but to no avail. I've hit a wall and feel completely helpless. This is not what I envisioned for her first day of preschool.


  1. THere's still a couple days until Monday...you never know :)

  2. Poor girl! I hope she gets better over the weekend so she is ready for her first day of school! Is she excited about school?

    Good luck Monday and let us know how it goes! I can't wait to hear how she likes it.

  3. Hopefully it will get better soon- We are sending prayers your way for agood first day of school!
