I am in a hospital bed recovering after an accident. I've learned so much
that might help you if you end up in a hospital, too . I've learned that
the nurses are nice, the beds are comfortable (and you can move them up
and down), and that there are video games and TV and movies and lots of
other fun things to do. Imagine!
I also know first-hand how
important it is to wear a helmet, and whatever other things you have that
can protect you from getting hurt when you play. If you do that, I'll bet
you won't hurt yourself too badly.
