My dad fractured his back
me: you are up...
It goes pretty well
Friend: that's awesome. i can't wait to see the house
me: I got some bad news tonight...my dad fractured his back....kind of freaked me out
Friend: andy, that sucks. is he ok? are you ok?
me: he isn't so good. I'm ok…it's a stupid story
Friend: what happened?
me: he was with my brothers kids (his grandsons) and was out walking in the woods Alex age 4.5 climbed a rock and got his foot stuck ....rather than let his brother help him, my dad decided to climb up about 4 ft to help him he got Alex out no problem but then couldn't figure out a way down himself because he isn't the most limber guy so he decided to jump of the rock backwards.
Friend: oh no
me: He landed on his feet lost his balance and fell backward on a rock
Friend: that is terrible holy shit that sounds painful. kids must have freaked out
me: he's laying there in the woods screaming with a 7 and 4.5 year old and no one else is nearby yep kids freaked
me: so what's my dad do? He has a cell phone and doesn't call anyone
me: He lays there screaming....and then somehow gets up ....walks to the car (5 mins) and drives himself home
Friend: holy fucking shit
me: yea. that's what I said. I'm kind of in shock a bit.
Friend: when did this happen?
me: this afternoon
Friend: did your dad call 911 (eventually?)
He's a doctor...called his partner who came to the house…took some percocets could of been a lot worse
weird story huh
how's your weekend?
Friend: andy, this is one thing I've learned. it can always be worse always ha. nothing as crazy as that.
