This is just an outlet for me, to be able to get my thoughts out! I am a Woman, Wife and Mommy that also works outside the home! Just me trying to make it all work for the best for my family and myself! Just my journey!

WINNING in so many ways!!!

Adam saw the Podiatrist today and it is official, he is fighting Sever's Disease. This Dr. offered plenty of hope to my husband (which he passed on). I found out today that my insurance does cover the cushioning he needs to beat this and ease him through it. He does not have to quit any of his sports or walking. This DR. Says it is NOT growing pains, and my husband saw, by the x-ray, that it is calcium deposits and we need to cushion his heels to give him comfort until the calcium deposits are gone. The other thing the Doctor noticed (as mom and dad we already noticed) Adam has high arches, this only adds to the problem. This Dr. gave him cushioning to wear for about 1 1/2 weeks, until the molded cushions come in, and we won't have to change anything, except allow Adam, to wear tennis shoes in the house (I'll be purchasing real house shoes tomorrow, slippers aren't supportive enough). I do believe Adam will be fine very, VERY, very shortly!!

As God would have it, the Doctor Adam saw also fought this when he was young (back when there wasn't a name or treatment) so he empathizes with Adam and is directing us very well! Thank you for all your prayers and continue to lift Adam up for speedy recovery from this Sever's Disease.

On an even happier note, Adam's team won their football game on Sunday, Merrillville Pirates beat the Munster Colts 28-6. What a proud time for all these kids and their parents!! CONGRATULATIONS MERRILLVILLE JR. MIDGET PIRATES!!!


  1. Chrissy, I'm so glad you wrote about this. I have been perplexed by my Zach. He limped all day after a recent soccer game and complains frequently about foot/heel pain. I'm going to have to check this out!

  2. Yeah he won his game and glad things went well at the Dr. office.

  3. Be thankful you got answers -- YAY! God will take care of him.


  4. you'll have to let me know which podiatrist!

    I'm a wound/podiatry nurse!

    That's a good point, no one. None should walk around barefoot. That's not just for diabetics, everyone! Most foot injuries happen in the house.

    So, that's all I have to say about that.

    :D Glad he's on his way to recovery!
