So, my left ankle is slowly getting better and I am able to walk around, albeit with a pronounced limp. After my fall, my knee seems to have a problem with the ankle’s movement and for the last few days, I have had to wear a knee guard to keep the knee from buckling.
Both my children have been so very very helpful over the last ten days, making cards, running errands, spending time with me and generally giving me oodles of love.
They are quite relieved that I am mobile now.
Yesterday, when my son got back from school, he heard me talking on the phone with a friend, who had called to enquire about my leg. I mentioned to her that I was wearing a knee guard.
After the call, my son asked me if I was really wearing a knee guard and if yes, could he see it?
I told him I was wearing a knee guard, but that it would be difficult to show it to him, as the jeans could not move up till my knee.
Strangely though, he persisted and wouldn’t let go. I finally showed it to him.
“Phew! he said.
“What?” I asked.
Pat came the reply, “I thought you had borrowed my sports knee guards, and I was worried about how I would attend my training this week.”
I laughed out aloud and assured him that these were my own.
Really, the things that kids worry about!
