Another Hazard for tkr

It was a beautiful day when I decided to take my new knee for a walk through the local mall.  All was fine and dandy until….I came face to face with a new hazard.  A hazard that I was never made aware of, but still on the same level as a big dog.

While browsing through the jewelry department, suddenly a tribe of small children came into view.  One backed up without looking, while the other two were hyped up while trying to convince their mom to let them go home.  All three children came to my waist level.  One was swinging his arms, another pushing her brother, and still another anxious to just get out of there.  One by one, they would have knocked into me if I was not aware of my surroundings.  (It’s kind of hard not to be aware when the sounds of squealing kids is in the air.)

Anyways, I mention this since as a total knee replacement patient, we are made aware of small dogs and our home environment as being potential hazards.  Never did I hear that small kids could be considered part of that category.

Hmmm….watch out for the little human munchkins.  They mean well, but those little bundles of energy can pack a solid unexpected whallop.
