My #WOTW last week was Sir. I wrote about how he had hurt his foot. At the time I posted that he was at school and his foot seemed to have improved. Then I got a phone call……
The rest of Friday was spent at the Children’s A&E of Good Hope Hospital trying to determine whether or not the foot was broken. I cannot praise the staff enough. Locally this hospital has the unfortunate nickname of No Hope. Whether it was deserved in the past I can’t comment but they were fantastic. We were seen quickly, everyone went out of their way to make the process as easy as possible for us and more importantly Sir.
He was amazing. He co operated with the nurses.. apart from the X-Ray but even then he wasn’t as bad as he could have been. He did throw a tantrum when they produced a huge boot for him to wear but then he was tired, hungry and frankly looking at the thing I would have done the same.
But the wonderful student nurse got him to wear it and we came home, with an appointment for Monday morning. The boot lasted 5 minutes at home and sat in the hallway all weekend.
On Monday we actually got him to wear it to the appointment. He shook the Dr’s hand and said “nice to meet you” 😀 he co operated and we were told the foot wasn’t broken and he didn’t need the boot!
Very proud of him for the way he handled it all 😀
