I've had an interesting morning. After tai chi, I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, and as I was heading to my car, I noticed a young woman who appeared to be in serious pain. I watched a few moments, then walked over and asked if everything was OK (which obviously it was not, but what do you say?)
She said she thought something had ruptured, but that she was going to drive to the emergency room. She could hardly talk. I asked if she was really capable of driving and told her I'd be happy to take her. By then, she could barely move, and she agreed. The hospital was only about 5 minutes away, but it was lunch time traffic, and I don't know if she could have made it by herself. I took her to Willis Knighton's emergency room and am hoping that everything is OK. She called her husband on the way, and he was supposed to meet her there.
I remember the pain before my appendix burst and the pain when I had a kidney stone...I was past being able to think in both cases.
On a more cheerful note, this video of a crow snowboarding on a roof is so funny. Crows are really intelligent birds, but this one knows how to entertain himself!
