Theme Day - Waiting

Dominic waits for his knee to heal

Walking along busy Puckle Street, I noticed this chap with his leg bandaged and a pair of crutches. His name is Dominic and he tells me he works in the building industry. About 150 lbs of building material came down on him damaging his knee. He explained how he put his hands out when he saw the stuff coming down and had he not done so his knee would have been more severely damaged.

He will be off work until next year. And so he waits patiently for that day to come.

"Waiting" to heal... good take on the theme, and I hope he does not have too long to wait. Sounds like a frightening accident.

That's a heck of a thing to have to wait for. But what about his hand? Didn't that get smashed, too?

I hope he get well soon and his leg can return to normal use again.

Nice to meet Dominic, I'm sorry for his leg. I hope his waiting won't be too long.
