Bernie' s Random Ramblings // An unexpected injury

So this is what you've been waiting for....

Last week I went with my youth group to a camp. And it was fun, but something unexpected happened. And it involves a head, a car, and a bucket.

So, on Tuesday last week, my first day of camp we were having team games. This year the games were Olympic themed since the Olympics are this year. ONE MORE MONTH GUYS! We were team England. Our first game was slippin slide kickball. We won. Next game was.. don't know what it's called. A big giant inflated ball and everybody from both sides run and try to push it to the other side. This is a big ball so you need to give it a big push. Most of the time I was a little scared so I didn't push it much at all. But this was the last time I was going to do this, so I went all in. "I'm going to pull this baby all the way to victory I thought." And that's all I remember until about a minute later.

I wake up on the ground. I sit up and try really hard to breath. Finally after I started breathing I lay back down while a man watches over me. I stand up and I leave the field in a wheelchair. So, apparently I went for the ball and fell on the ground and hit my head. I was also unconscious for 3-5 seconds. After a while an ambulance comes over and takes me to the hospital. 

I was also told that I couldn't do any sports for a week. Now it's hot at my house so I'm not so mad about having to be dragged outside by my brother to sweat like crazy. But this also means no gymnastics. No handstand guys. It was horrible. There are plenty of times going around the house and just wanting to belt out a handstand. But no! I couldn't guys. There were times I just cried_(fake) because I couldn't flip. 

Another bad thing about this injury was I missed going on my first rollercoaster experience. Yes, one thing they were doing for the camp was going to an amusement park and I couldn't go.  Although I wasn't so disappointed because I'm going to six flash with my family this month after hearing the stories from my youth group I front kinda bad. Sleeping the whole time wasn't that bad though. I was wiped Because of my injury. 

Btw, those of pictures of the beautiful campus we got to stay at.  The whole,campus was dream. And it's a Christian campus too. Also got some swag_ (that's what they call it these days?) An awesome backpack, books, a shirt, and also the amazing staff gave me some awesome stuff as a care package for my head. All of a sudden in front of every one they call my name and give me the worst injury award for  the week. They got me some shirts, food, that see some note, sunglasses, and a coffee cup. 

Thanks for reading guys!  I did not want you to make you feel bad. I'm just a person who loves hearing about injuries. The story and everything interests me. Hope you like!  

bouncing in to say bye,

P. S. Stay tunes for Friday!
