Funny story
« on: February 25, 2007, 07:51:25 PM »
I have been back at work part time after having my proximal realignment surgery.  I am a school based speech language pathologist. When I first went back, I wore a Breg PTO knee brace.  One of the preschool disabled students had heard that I had surgery.  He came up to me and asked if he could see the "missing leg."  He obviously thought that surgery means that something is removed.  I explained that my knee is still there.  He wanted to see it so I told him that I am wearing a brace that is like a big big bandaid.  I rolled up my pants leg so he could see the brace.  He was fascinated.  The teacher and I both were rolling after that.
