Decorative napkin and handy marker. An unexpected pairing, yet oddly strongly connected. Almost as if they were the same object, in a sense.
Okay, update on the old avulsions. Why do I say avulsions rather than avulsion??? Because I found out yesterday that I have TWO avulsions! One on each side of my ankle. I wondered why both sides of my ankle were swollen like there's no tomorrow.
Anyway, I have a new boot that keeps my ankle steady. I have a scooter that gives me some freedom and flair.
I've fallen off it once, but things are looking up. Doc says to keep off my ankle for ten days. I can do this now that I have the proper accessories. (Pain has decreased remarkably, she wrote, sighing with relief.)
I do have to put in a good word for whoever invented this scooter. WELL DONE! Crutches get a 0 on the fist of 5. The RollAbout gets a solid 5. The question I'm wondering about is this. Is the scooter a new invention or an innovation of the traditional crutch? Invention or Innovation? I keep mulling this over.
Another thing I keep thinking about is the amazing strength of Bert Shepard, of Dana, Indiana, who pitched in a major league game without a LEG! I've got even more admiration for Bert since I incurred my running injury. Bert didn't even have a RollAbout. We salute thee, Bert. Today and every day.
