Re: My seaon is screwed GRUESOME IMAGE
Last spring I was going down to work on my boat with my dad who was 82 at the time. He calls me at 5:30 am on a Sunday and says pick up some big band aids on my way over, he took a little fall. I get there and he is sitting in the chair with a bloody towel around his arm. The first thing he says is "I'm not wasting time at the hospital on a Sunday. I'll just keep it wrapped in a towel and we can go down to the boat. I'll get it patched up on Monday!" He lowers the towel and he is cut almost from the wrist to the elbow! He said it took him half an hour to clean up all the blood on the floor.
I take him to the emergency room at 7:00 am. There is one doctor and one nurse. He gets an xray, and electrocardiagram, and I help the doctor stitch him up with 26 stitches, because the nurse is busy with another patient. We're on the road to the boat by 9:00 am! A new record for a hospital visit!
