ER

yesterday was an eventful day @ the Beddoes house. I was at work and received a phone call from my mom that said "can you leave work right now, your dad is at the ER.He was kicked in the head by the horse!" my heart dropped so fast! Earlier in the day he received a phone call saying his horses were loose so, he took off to check out the situation. All was fine when he got there and couldn't figure out what they had been talking about because, they were still in the pasture. like I said in a previous blog I have 2 horses now. One is just a baby but, she has a tendency to BITE. He was walking with her right at his heels but, had a feeling she was going to bite so as he turned around she was standing on her two hind legs and came down right on top of his head! WOW that rung his bell! blood started to run so he figured he better drive himself to the hospital. NOT SMART!luckily no accidents on the way but, he did pass out when he arrived sitting in the chair (he doesn't think he did).They immediately did a CT scan and found out everything was fine, he just had a enormous goose ache and a pretty good laceration. 2 HOURS later they stapled him up and he was on the road! He is a stubborn old man and obviously hard headed! He was positive he could drive himself home but, I wouldn't take the chance.I have to say he is pretty dang lucky it was not serious! I have realized a lot living with the parents....It's hard to see them get older and not as agile as they used to be!It looks like I am gonna have to start wrapping him in bubble wrap when he leaves the house.

Jamie- I'm glad all was fine with your dad. Tell him to be careful around those "killer" horses. It sounds like you have a wild one on your hands. It is hard to see your parents age, I hate it.

Your dad is amazing! He sounds like he is a little stubborn and knows that he can still take care of himself EVEN if he has been kicked in the head by a horse and bleeding from the head. How is he feeling now? I am glad that everything went as well as it did. Your dad sounds cute.

He does seem to be somewhat accident prone, don't you think?
