For the first time since I broke my leg (the little bone in the lower leg. It sounds so much nastier an accident if I don't point that out.) I used a little knee scooter to get around once I got to work, which left my hands much freer than crutches. Still not as free as two good legs/feet, but freer.
It was exhausting. My left knee objects to the use, of course, but my hands and underarms just say 'suck it up, princess."
I am not to put weight on my left foot for at least six weeks, though. This is just going to suck all the way around.
Please, weather, no more ice! I can't crutch on ice.
