Today Savannah is having a root canal. My girl has a severe social phobia when it comes to strangers, doctors, or dentist and so we are having to drive two hours to a specialist that will sedate her completely while she gets this done. She's been full of anxiety and fear about it for the last month while we've waited for the appointment and I cannot wait for this to be over so she doesn't have to feel this way anymore. It is gut wrenching to see your child in pain and scared. So, since it's all about my girl today, a couple photos of her.
at her favorite happy place
Last weekend at the Zoo
She loves doing makeup artist type stuff, she did this "comic book look" the other night, so I stole one of her shots to share.
Lastly, on the injury-front... I believe I have heel bursitis. After spending some time reading about Achilles symptoms, I found info about an injury a bit lower on the heel than Achilles and it looks like all the symptoms match up with heel bursitis. Normal R.I.C.E. suggestions and no running for a bit. I suspect I won't be able to run the Superhero 5K next Saturday with Dallas and Savannah, but I'll cheer them on if I can't. I just want to get healed up so I'm ok for Half training when I'm due to start. I'm trying not to focus on the stamina I'm going to lose in the next week or two, taking a break and staying positive. You may have to remind me of this in a week when I'm going nuts because I haven't run! ;)
Think a good thought for my girl today!
