Slice of Life 2019: Day 7

Getting the Boot

Day 7 went differently than I planned.

I feel bad too because I kept telling him he’s got to stay off the trampoline.

But, I realized when we walked into the Orthopedic’s office that he had re-injured an old fracture from last year. That old injury was weak and any kind of strenuous activity could’ve caused this.

He was a brave bear though with all the pain and swelling.

Sliding the boot over his fractured ankle was excruciating, but he managed it without tears.

Dang trampoline!

  1. Getting the boot, both figuratively and literally! His look as that boot is being slid on tells the whole story. Thank you for sharing this painful slice! I hope he heals quickly! πŸ™‚

  2. I think I am most drawn to the emotions in this piece of writing – pride in your brave bear and the frustration of the dang trampoline. Best wishes for your son’s recovery from this fracture.
