July 4th was full of unexpected events!
First there was the unplanned race I ran with less than 12 hours of notification.
Then there was a trip to the ER.
Back in December, my sister dislocated her shoulder while attempting to ski down a double black diamond ski run in Big Sky.
Since then it hasn’t given her any problems, but last night while playing around in the pool, she dislocated it again.
I took her to the emergency room on July 4th. . . hoping to beat all the kids who may be there with injuries from fireworks.
My sister is holding up one finger because it was her first time to the ER. (I guess she was excited about this. :-?)
As to be expected, it took forever to get her shoulder popped back in—even though we were the only people there!
My sister’s facial expression tell you what we thought of the physicians assistant who helped her. He was a little strange and did not seem that confident with what he was about to do.
He actually didn’t even know her shoulder popped back into place when it happened. (My sister did though.)
After 1.5 hours, we finally left and watched a few fireworks while driving back to camp.
One thing that happened yesterday that was expected was an annual picture in the corn field.
The saying goes: “knee high by the 4th of July,” so we always have to go out into the corn field to make sure the corn is taller than our knees.
Well, as you can see that was definitely the case.
Me, my dad, and my grandpa (three generations)
Actually, the corn is not doing that well this year. Many years it is knee high by JUNE 4th.
Hopefully there won’t be unexpected happenings today! I’ve got lunch and dinner plans with family and friends, so it should be a fun-filled day!
Have you ever been to the ER?
I have only *taken* people to the ER, and I would be more than happy to keep it that way!
