Whenever I see an ambulance speeding down the road, I always silently pray, “Please keep the person, whoever they are rushing to safe/alive. Don’t let them die today”. Does anyone else do that?
I just heard an ambulance now, and I realized I do that subconsciously!
A couple of years ago, I dislocated my shoulder while I was in the swimming pool. I was screaming my guts out! Someone called 911 and my husband. The paramedics came and took me to the hospital. I was given morphine to reduce my pain.
I remember asking one of the paramedics if I was going to die. He laughed and assured me no one has died over a dislocated shoulder. I would like to remind you once again, I was on morphine…I couldn’t stop talking and asking questions.
I also asked will they amputate my arm since it seemed ‘useless’. He once again assured me that my hand will be as good as new in a couple of months.
Well, after a month of physiotherapy my arm was all better!
