Last week it was back to the podiatrist. When Gretchen was in 6th grade she had surgery on her right ankle to help it pivot better. She is missing the subtalar joint in that ankle. She also suffers from flat feet. After the surgery and physical therapy, we haven’t been to the podiatrist since March of 2013. The start of high school is less than a month away, and PE is a mandatory class. In middle school we had Gretchen switched from PE to choir. Now she needs a doctor’s note to get out of PE.

The reason she cannot participate in PE – she has a physical deformity. Yes, that is the reason the doctor gave on the form.

In other news, Gretchen has told me she has finally figured out how to continue her fanfic.
