(单词翻译:单击)

Gail: Oh! 哎呀! Mike: Are you okay? 你还好吗? Gail: Yeah, I’m just not used to these crutches yet. The doctor said I should start using them if I ever want to get out of this wheelchair, but I don’t have the strength to stand up. 是啊,我只是不习惯使用这些拐杖。医生说如果我想要从轮椅中出来,我就应该开始使用拐杖。但我没有站起来的力气。 Mike: You’ll get the hang of it. Don’t lose heart. 你会掌握使用拐杖的窍门。不要灰心。

Gail: It should be easy now that my arm is out of the cast, but it just seems impossible. I feel I’m going to lose my balance each time I try to stand up.
我的胳膊从模子中拿出来应该能容易些,但这似乎是不可能的。每一次我试图站起来,我觉得我马上会失去平衡。

Mike: Try again, and this time lean on me and I’ll try to serve as your legs until you can find your balance.
再试试,这一次靠着我,我会辅助你,直到你找到平衡。

Gail: I wish I didn’t feel so utterly useless. It’s so frustrating!
我真希望自己不要这么没用。它是如此令人沮丧!

Mike: I know. Just keep your eye on the ball and give it another try. The next thing you know, you’ll be limping along and then running a marathon. It’s just a matter of time before you get your mobility back.
我知道。只要保持警觉,再试试。接下来的事情你知道的,你要会一瘸一拐的沿着掳走,来次耐力的考验。找回灵活性只是一个时间的问题。

Gail: Yeah, right. Okay, first things first. Let’s see if these useless legs of mine will cooperate this time.
是的,说得对。好吧,重要的事先做。让我们来看看我的这些无用的腿这次能否能协调。
