Re: My Biggest Fear!

Here's a call no parent wants to get.....I'm with my wife last Tuesday, about 7:45pm, just relaxing, my Cell rings, it's my son......"You've got to come pick me up right now, I've been stabbed. I'm bleeding all over and it's hard to breathe. I'm getting dizzy. You've gotta come get me!"

I've only felt a feeling close to that once before when he was 7 in Nassua, we lost sight of him for about 2 mins. because he ran off in the market downtown. This was 10 times worse, it took us about 6 frantic minutes to get to him. 911 was called and the police were there a couple of mins. before us. When we got to him, he was conscious, alert and the wound was controlled. We could tell he was going to be OK and was stable.

In those 6 minutes I thought we were going to lose him. I'm very good under pressure, but it took me about 15-20 minutes to stop my hands from shaking. I hope and pray I never have that feeling again.

It turns out my knucklehead 17 yr. old and a friend were at the friend's house messing around with a knife and he wound up with a small stab wound in his upper left chest. By the grace of God the knife only went in less than an inch and didn't penetrate his chest cavity. When we were at the hospital the surgeon said he didn't need an operation, however I did ask if they could perform a brain transplant and get one that worked.

Children: The living embodiment of Ying/Yang. You love them so deeply that sometimes you just want to kill them.

Seriously - Glad he's okay.

Just curious, was the brain transplant a success? My guess is that any brain transplanted into a 17 year old boy would be rejected unless it was carrying an extra helping of "dumbsh**" neurons.

Thanks to all for the kind words.
