getting stitches by nicolas gray
When I went to Westfield to see my grandma, I thought that everything was going to be happy. Well, it didn't turn out as happy as I thought it would. It was about five-forty-five when we went to go out for dinner. We arrived at about six o'clock. We ate and then me and my brother, Nathaniel decided to go outside where there were some pine trees. I walked over to them and said, “I want to climb one.”
He said, “Dude, be careful!” When I was only a couple branches up SNAP! I fell out! When I hit the ground I landed on sticks and bark. Nathaniel said, “Are you okay?” I said, “Yeah, I think so.” When I was getting up I looked down at my knee and screamed, “Holy,CRAP!” A whole chunk of my leg was gone. The bartender was coming back from her car and heard me cry out. the bartender said, “Are you ok?” I walked over to her and showed her my leg and she said to her husband, “Go inside and call 911!”
Nathaniel ran inside to get Grandma. A minute later Nathaniel and Grandma came outside. Grandma said, “What happened?”Nathaniel said, “Nicolas was climbing a tree and he fell out. A couple other people came outside wondering what happened.Then the ambulance came and they asked me, “Do you want an ice pack to numb it so it won’t feel so bad?” I answered, “Yes,” so they gave me one and said not to get any of it on my skin.
Then we had to get to the hospital and I had to ride in our car because they said that if you ride in the ambulance it’s really bumpy. We went to the Portage hospital because Westfield doesn't have one. We arrived at about seven o'clock and we rushed inside. I sat in a wheelchair because it kind of hurt to walk. My grandma wheeled me over and she went into the little office and told the nurse what happened. She filled out the forms and came out. I asked her what he said and she said that someone would be out in a little bit. We waited a minute and then the doctor came out and we followed her into a room.
