Well, I think we have our first child accident under our belts here. Last night my wife went grocery shopping with our daughter and had an incident. Hope (daughter) stood up in the cart and fell out. She was fine for a while but started vomiting and we wound up staying at the hospital overnight to be sure (they would have let her go last night if we wanted). Slight skull fracture, but that's all. We got to sleep about 4 this morning, tired but relieved. Could have been worse. My dad and I have our stuff between us too, he hit me with a car once, about crushed me with a tractor... And I've returned the favors. I've had my incidents where I about undid myself too. Let's see.. electrocution, an industrial ovehead door almost fell on me and dad both, malathion poisoning (very very slight, just a little nauseous). But this kid is damn smart, she could type her name on this keyboard if she was here! That ain't bad for a kid who turned 3 on Jan 18 huh?

Happy to hear everythings okay man! I'd probably be slapping doctors and getting kicked out of the hospital lol. Man, you've got enough childhood accidents for most of us here...I can only claim a few ATV crashes and falling into a swimming pool when I was 3.

Smart kid!

She's doing very good, thanks for the concern. She scored off the scale on the denver tests or whatever it is they do for Early Head-Start. I didn't tell everything and could have more stuff; I'm sure there's people who's stories make mine look like trips to disneyland or just outnumber them. Sad thing is this stuff still happens and I'm 23! The Malathion thing was last year. I was washing out and treating the insides of grain bins last summer, and I put the poison in while they were still wet. When the bins heated up the combo evaporated and I happened to still be over the open tops. Can't think of any other good ones right now, I've led a pretty boring life though so I don't really have a lot of 'em.

re

Two stupid childhood accidents which spring to mind are:

A) When I was about 8, playing "it" or something with mates, one guy thought he could get me by lobbing a brick at me - which hit me square in the head knocking me down.

B) At a similar age when running on the school playing fields, a mate accidently clipped me as he ran with me, causing me to lose my balance stopping me from turning, and sending me straight into a tree, which I head butted and cut my head open fairly badly, requiring glueing.

I blame these two head injuries on a few things. :D

Try him as an adult, I say!

Broke my right ankle when I was three stepping down a two-step porch (don't know how exactly that happened); broke some fingers playing football in high school; broke my right ankle last September when some soccer mom driving head-on turned left in front of my motorcycle and I summersalted landing on my feet.

I can't believe some of you people can still obtain medical insurance! :shock:

And hope that Hope continues to enjoy a full recovery!

Wouldn't even know anything happened by the crying fit today when Katie left for her EMT class. She's doing real good thanks.

A story of stupidity: Working on a farm involves chaging parts that run underground a lot. This can give quite a nice little edge to some bolts. A big mistake would be try and hold a bolt spinning in a hole with your hand and use an air wrench on the nut. Dad warned me about this a couple years ago. He had just done it when he told me. A mere week later I found myself in a similar situation; me being young(er) and dumb (probably not er) thought "aw he just wasn't holding it tight enough". Sliced my finger up pretty good. When dad did it we had a volunteer ER guy with us who suggested the glue. Worked really well for him. Since he used it all I had to cope with a Band-Aide that constantly fell off the flap of skin got caught on everything it possibly could. :x

this is not me, this is a 28 yr old friend of mine but his best story was about the time when him and two friends were driving a friends escort home from college and he was in the passeneger seat hiss other buddy driving and his 6'4" friend was in the back, they decide the guy in the back was going to drive all the way home with his feet, so he does, they also find bottle rockets which get shot at truckers going the other way on I80...all this in an escort that doesnt go above 45 mph, o and forgot to mention they were all tripped out on acid, funnny but stupid lol

That one is insane lol.

You guys should have seen my brothers and their recreation of "Omaha Beach" at a lake party...The "Germans" had lots of fireworks in lieu of MG-42s and fired a ton at them as they heroically stormed the beach lol.

The "Germans" ran out of ammo and fled before it could turn into hand-to-hand

Got a new one today: I'll try to describe it so it makes sense, it's a hard picture to paint. I just started working at Lowe's doing "remerchandising" which amounts to taking things off of one shelf and putting them on the other. You know the machines that you stand on and raise up to pull things off of the top shelf by hand? I was up there with a guy putting the beams for shelves up today. We doing the beam in the back and had the lift basically inside the shelving rack. I was standing on the shelf below it and had a beam between me and the platform. I put my hand where you attach the saftey tethers, rather than the part that says "hand hold", below another beam. He raised the machine up and smashed by fingers bewteen the cage and the beam. My fingers are okay at the moment, nothing broken but probably fractured. The beam came undone, despite the locking tab on it, and the bar on the cage bent. Just another little little story. BTK had been in the store, when I told my mom she asked "Did you meet him?" like I said "Oh hey, Stallone came in." Mothers huh?

Ugh...Work accidents.

Found several ways to almost kill myself while I was a lumberjack this summer and fall.

Gotta love ballistic nylon.
