When I was about 13 years old I cut my spleen while I was snowboarding with my friends. It was a bad accident'I was just snowboarding the way I usually do but I caught an edge. I was out of school for a month and couldn't do anything for 3 months. I couldn't even get in a car for 2 weeks because it hurt so badly! But the whole time I had friends and family with me to help and support me. Right after the accident they helped me all the way down the mountain and made sure I was safe. It was a good thing, too because it turns out I was a trauma 3 out of 4!
My friends and family have shown me so much love. Even a priest came to the end of my bed to encourage me, and sat with my parents in the waiting room. I would not have made it through the night alive if I hadn't gotten to the hospital in time. I cannot thank everyone enough for their thoughts and prayers for. I got through it all because of them!
