im at the hospital with dad.
i hate it here
i just want him better.
to update you on whats wrong with him
i went home on sunday to pick up some furniture for the house
mom and dad had bought some horses and they were spending the day trying to break them in
i was over at the house
playing the piano (not that i can) in the sun room
i looked out the window
and i see one of the horses freaking out
and then dad goes flying off and to the ground
mom goes running to him
i Burst out of the house and jump on the 4x4
and high tail it over to him
mom screams to call 911
i go back to the house
grab a cell
go back to dad
i try the best i can to keep him comfortable
but mom nor i could do much
my brother goes to the road to show the ambulance where to go
2 minutes later he comes back
covered in mud
he wrecked the 4x4
bad road rash on is arm
the ambulance comes
we get him on a stretcher and we all carry him to the ambulance
before we even got out of the driveway
the ambulance stops
the driver comes out and says his blood pressure dropped
and they are going to fly him to Lexington
so i drive mom brother and a friend up the interstate
i didnt let the suburban slow below 100 mph
we get here
they find he has 6 broken ribs
a broken collar bone
and they think they thought maybe internal bleeding
they keep him in the ER about 7 hours
then move him to a room
i go home
next morning im back
leave an hour later to run some errands
at about 6 my aunt calls me
she tells me that dad is doing bad
i get here in a hurry
what happened is
his blood oxygen level dropped below 50%
he was unresponsive
and his skin color was blue
we almost lost him...
but now im here
staying with him
to keep him company and safe
from anything happening like yesterday
