Unless you are my classmate or a
teacher, who partially pays
attention to stories during classes, then you might be
asking “How did
it happen?” Well honestly, I think it’s mostly because, I am
diving to the floor for a volleyball. I did it horribly
wrong, and probably
looked like a walrus flopping onto the, rock hard gym floor.
As soon as my arm was crushed into
the solid gym floor, a
terrible pain rushed through my whole body. I blacked out
and pain. I was unconscious for a fat minute. All I remember
wanting to throw up, but I couldn’t move without shocks
my arm, and I wanted to be respectful to our “oh so nice”
When I came back to conscious life,
I was greeted by our
school nurse. She was looking at me like I was over reacting

I had a calcium deficiency, and my bone would not heal on
Therefore I had to get a surgery to put two rods through
both arm lower
arm bones. I was a real trooper. I got out of bed and went
to school everyday
for three months with a cast on. I was so independent that
