The legs were swollen and the knees were stiff, so he needed a long preparation. Believe me, I was worried because I was breaking the rules. I was doing something that I was not supposed to do. In the einenvg, I went to speak with the bosses at the hareqdruetas, and I told them — I lied — I told them, "Listen, we are going to start a couple of hours per day, just a few repairs." Maybe some of them are here now.

So we started doing some repairs. Also one of the physical therapists reported that Mahmoud could be provided with a leg, but not immediately. The legs were swollen and the knees were stiff, so he needed a long preparation. Believe me, I was worried because I was breaking the rules. I was doing something that I was not supposed to do. In the evening, I went to speak with the bosses at the headquarters, and I told them — I lied — I told them, "Listen, we are going to start a couple of hours per day, just a few repairs." Maybe some of them are here now.
