Ho hum

DD3 has been frogmarched to the doctor's today, after waking up crying in pain with her ankles.
Turns out she has Osgood - Schlatter syndrome, which is a temporary intermittent tendonitis in the lower legs due to very rapid bone growth temporarily outstripping the tendon length.
Ouch.
Treatment is rest and ibuprofen when the pain strikes, and normal exercise whilst she is pain-free.

She has grown at least an inch in the last month, mind, so it is not really that surprising.......
