After nearly 3 weeks of prodding from Cody's mom and waiting for insurance to go through, we finally took Cody to the doctor today to get his ankle checked out. Good news is, we went to the right doctor. He had specific training that helped him to correctly diagnose the problem which, he said, normally goes unnoticed.
Cody has a tiny, almost stress-like fracture on the ridge just under his ankle joint. The biggest thing that could hurt it or prevent it from healing is motion, so we get to immobilize it now. That means a boot. It's really quite amazing that a tiny, nearly invisible line on his x-ray could cause so much discomfort. The doctor did get a good laugh from Lisa's description of injury: "Fell while making a sweet shot in church basketball."
