Nat currently has a medical condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. It’s in in left leg and is incredibly painful.
A couple of weeks ago we had to do some shopping for birthday presents, and Nat had to come with me. As he’s on crutches most of the time (also quite painful), to help him navigate the large shopping centre, we hired a wheelchair for the couple of hours we were at the shops.
I must admit, one advantage of having him sitting in a wheel chair is that I can put all the shopping bags on his lap for him to carry! That does make pushing a 50kg 14 year old around the shopping centre worth it…
Nat has found another advantage… He can easily solve his cube while we shop!
