Terminator IV: The Exercise Machines

Mom started going to physical therapy at Baylor-All Saints. The first day, she stressed her lower back muscles on a machine, causing her to miss her second day of therapy, and to be in pain for several days.

Me: How did you hurt your back?

Mom: The therapist put me on a machine "for 10 minutes." Then, she walked away, got distracted, and left me on the machine for 15 minutes.

Me: Why didn't you turn the machine off?

Mom: I didn't know how. When she walked away, I just had to keep going.
