More Of Chapter 1

....."What is your name?," said a paramedic.  Everything was a blur as I lay, stunned in the back of an ambulance.  I couldn't move my legs; although, I did have some feeling in them.  "My name is Ricky Kendall," I muttered.  All I could think is how did I let it go this far?  "This might hurt a little," said another paramedic.  She grabbed my arm and it felt like a bee had stung me.  I grimaced as the IV was inserted into my arm.  "What day is it?," asked the paramedic.  It took a minute for me to come up with the answer because that was the least of my worries at this point. "Wednesday," I said, "I think it's Wednesday."  As I laid there and looked around, all I saw were smiling faces.  All I heard were words of encouragement.  "Don't worry, you are gonna be fine," explained the paramedic.  I had never been to the hospital or anything more than a routine physical so I was anxious, nervous, and scared all at the same time.  I was wearing my favorite Carolina Panther's t-shirt and a pair of blue jeans because I left with only the clothes on my back.  "Do you feel any pain?," I heard.  "No, no pain," I spoke.  I started to feel cold.  It was around that point that I was covered with a blanket.  Different questions were running through my mind.  What is wrong with me? Will I ever be able to walk again?  Is it gonna require major surgery?  It was only just the beginning of my journey.  When we arrived at the hospital, I felt the cold air rush in as the back doors opened.  "Hold on sir, you might feel a little bump," I was told.  Bump! Bump!  There was a tingling sort of pain because my body lifted off of the stretcher with every single bump.  I had a sore on my backside from being immobile for a couple of weeks.  I was rolled into the emergency room or ER hallway and lifted onto a slightly more comfortable hospital stretcher.....

  7. I'm confuse, is this a story or is this real? if this is real and it did happen to the blogger, then omg I'm sorry sorry, are you ok. What happened? Did you get into an accident?
    I been rushed into the ER before and it was no picnic. They have major room shortage so I ended up waiting for a solid 5 hours in order to be admitted and treated. I hope everything works out, let us know k :)

  8. Thanks everyone for reading and definitely for commenting!
    @Bronzi..You are absolutely right! I am in the middle of a major move so it will be a little while before I get to update; however, please bear with me and check regularly for more updates starting in August 2011.

    @Cubicw86...YES this is based on a true story; my story. Thanks for your concern and maybe I did get into an accident but maybe I didnt...lol. Part of the purpose of not revealing exactly what happened is to get you to really read whats going on and see if you can pick up on clues. I will update regularly in August; i am in the middle of moving.

  9. Wow, this is getting intense. I wonder how much is true. Well, I pray that you are all healed up by now. Glad that you're sharing your experience. I will keep reading!
