Last year I had a tragic thing happen to me. On christmas day I was sitting on a hoverboard when I froze and lost control of the board. As I was flying down the hill I stuck out my leg to brace myself and hit a parked car.
All I remember is feeling like throwing up from all the shock, my dad threw me in the car and we drove to the hospital. When we were driving I felt my foot flip behind my leg and started crying and screaming in shear pain. When we got to the hospital I got very stressed and mad at the front desk people because they were slow and asked many questions.
When I thought it couldn’t get worse I was told I shattered my tibia and fibula plus I would have to transfer hospitals for surgery. The drive to the other hospital was terrible and felt like 3 hours. After my 12:00 pm surgery my parents and I were informed that my lungs got clogged, I had tubes stuck up my nose to keep me alive when I was being rushed to ICU and could have had permanent lung damage.
Right now I am almost fully healed and am back to running and playing sports.In a few months I get to get my rods out after 2 full leg casts, 3 boots and a 9 month recovery so I am so thankful to be finally healed.
