....and the result was
A nil-nil draw and a possible ankle fracture for my son. Too swollen to X-ray at the moment as the bony bit that sticks out at the side of the ankle resembles a shinty ball! Which leads me to the wonders of the internet. As a concerned mother and sometimes referred to at work as "Medical Morag", and being the appointed person for first aid, I spent a good couple of hours delving into the millions of things about ankles on the web. I now know that the bony bit that sticks out is called the lateral malleolus and is in fact the bottom end of the fibula which forms a cup shape with the tibia for the ankle joint. With this limited knowledge I am of course worrying- only time will tell. Last year he got a broken thumb...now I found out a lot about that too on the internet. My son's nickname in the shinty team is "Bones".
