Last week, I was so careless that I went kayaking drunk. I did not know that happened, but I think that I just needed a new adventure in my life because plain kayaking was not that fun anymore. I had a freak accident and I fell on huge rocks on a river stream. I was so drunk that I have not had enough time to react quickly. I was almost knocked unconscious and I am glad that my friends were not drunk and they were able to save me. They got me to the hospital as fast as they could. They brought me to the emergency room and told the doctor about what happened. The doctor examined my eyes and my whole body and he saw some scratches that I got from the fall. Most scratches that I got is on the left part of my body. He asked me if I could move it and I could, but it was so painful. He also asked me about how many bottles of beer did I drink. I told him that I could not remember and he just smiled at me. He then asked my friends about it and they told him that I drank ten bottles.
The doctor told me that I need an x-ray and a Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI for my shoulders because it looked like that it took all my fall’s impact. The doctor also asked my friends to wait in the lobby, while they wait for the reception to book me my own room. It took me sometime for the MRI because I had tattoos on my chest and it would affect the image that they will get and it will also give me a burning sensation. They put a cold and wet cloth over my tattoo to alleviate the pain that I might feel, but it still burned as hell. I wondered what I would feel if they have not put on a cold and wet cloth over my inks.
It took me an hour before I could finally get to my room and see my friends. I was surprised to see my mom also inside the room. My friends looked like they were scolded by my mom because they were so quiet. My mom hugged me as soon as I entered the room. She asked me about my condition and I told her that am just feeling pain all over my body, especially a pain between shoulder blades and pain in left shoulder. She told me that she is glad that I am okay, but she made me promise that I would not go kayaking drunk again. She thanked my friends for rescuing me and she also reminded them to scold me whenever I try something stupid again and we all laughed. I asked my mom if my dad already knows about what happened and she told me that she would tell him when I am already out of the hospital. My dad has a hypertension and we do not want him to have elevated blood pressures ever again.
