Two Left Feet
Jacob is wearing a "boot" after fracturing his right foot on Thursday. The break is very small and should heal quickly. "What happened?" He fell... rather... he was walking. He falls when he walks. He falls. He falls. He falls. A loose baby tooth here, a fractured metatarsal there, black and blue on his beautiful face. A walker would be great except that he would not tolerate it and his right hand could not operate it. A one-on-one aide? Great... except Jacob did not qualify for the social service programs, apart from Early Intervention, that are offered to disabled children. (Judicial appeal in process.) We need a plan. He needs more therapy.
