What were all the ambulance rides for?

And holy moly that video is great! Hope you don't mind if I steal it for tomorrow.

Johanna said...

Aw, man! I was going to do this too! Now it looks like I am copying you instead of just copying Heidi and Jenni...

Joanna said...

I'm more desperate for a distraction than you Johanna. Sorry. :(

Okay, ambulance rides...

-the first one I was still in single digits for age and I tried to do a flip into a swimming pool and hit my head on the conceret side of the pool. My parents weren't there and I was bleeding to beat the band so I got an ambulance ride to the hospital where they gave me six stitches in my head. I now have a bald spot there.

-the second time I was 23 and stationed in Korea. As I was walking home from work my left eye just basically gave up looking straight; it would only look left and I couldn't see straigt so the ambulance took me to the hospital on post. The neurologist called it Third Nerve Palsy (the third nerve in my eye got temporarily paralyzed) and related it to very bad migranes and being in Korea. It's never happened since.

- the third time was recently (this past summer) when I was making donuts and the oil suddenly tried to KILL me and splashed out at me for no apparent reason. I really didn't need to go to the ER at all but I was a wee bit freaked out at the what seemed like massive amounts of burns on my hand and my face. The docs in the ER were nervous about having a burn patient so they sent me by ambulance to Tampa General where they have a fantastic burn center. When I got there, the nurses basically laughed my little second degree burns. I guess they see a lot worse!!! LOL. For the record, they were pretty bad burns, just...not as bad as I had originally thought.

Oh yeah, the video - I have watched several of those. They are all good. There are billboards up all over the place for those here. Very neat idea. Did you look around to some of the other informtation there? It is very well done.

Aren't little baby lambs so sweet?? :-D

Wow--those are quite the stories! You should put them in a post so other readers are sure to see them. I've never heard of Third Nerve Palsy.
