I had a whole other post ready to go but we are having a bit of an emergency that some of you may be able to help with! Lucia fell today – which of course gave me a heart attack – and after I had checked her legs for any cuts (she didn’t have any thankfully) we then noticed the hole she had put in the knee of her compression tights. Her last pair of compression tights.
So of course blind panic set in. We are awaiting her new tights which we hope will be here by the end of the week but there are no guarantees with that. So what I need to know is can we do any sort of minor repairs to the tights to be able to keep wearing them until we get the new ones? Her other pair has a hole in the heel which might be slightly easier to repair so have a couple of options I hope.
We are having a bit of a heat wave too so all I can think is hot weather, more swelling and no compression, so as you can imagine I am a little concerned. Without the tights it is also really difficult to get her shoes on and there is no way we will be able to keep her in for a week or more. We need tights!
I will of course be contacting Lynne our physio first thing in the morning but any advice on sewing/patching or whatever might work is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
