One false move: my sister pivots to the left while standing at work and injures her knee. She had surgery on it five years ago – both she and our brother have been plagued by knee problems all their lives – and it looks like she’ll be having it again. She works twelve hour night shifts at the local hospital, and can’t find anyone to replace her, so she works the remaining nine hours on crutches without complaining. Now she’s mired in the bureaucracy of workers’ comp, trying to get it repaired so she can get back to work.
