A Crutch in Time

My youngest daughter recently hyper-extended her knee just a bit in a soccer game. She is okay, so far, but has to use crutches for a week or so. The Dr. told her he will see what it is like later this week, and that he may need an MRI (Which I told her is better than an MRE) to see if any damage was done. We borrowed some crutches from one of my wife's co-workers, and they were a little old, meaning they hurt my daughter's armpits. Well, a little foam, a little fleece, and a couple of shoelaces later, and here is the result. I never claimed to be a seamstress, but they are functional. Good for a giggle at least. My older daughter says they look like mailboxes.

Since I am an expert on crutches I just wanted to tell you that if they hurt her armpits, then she is not using them right. She is supposed to put ALL her weight on her hands and arms. Yes, her arms might get sore, but it is FAR better than sore armpits, and her arms will get stronger. It is essential that she do this or her armpits will get so sore she will not even be able to walk around.

My word verification is "chilitam" Is that a hat with chili's on it?

I was going to say the same thing about using the crutches, but I hope she gets feeling better soon and doesn't have to use them at all.
