Trip hazard!

I was walking along the pavement with my daughter, and tripped over the edge of the drain cover. I have had to be seen at the hospital due to a laceration to my right knee. This has caused me to have an infection in my knee and having to have intravenous anti biotics plus an x-ray also. After this I then had to go on a weeks dose of anti biotics to clear the infection. I will be looking into to taking this further.
