Amen! Keep thrashin'!
And nothing like being married to a woman that inspires daughter-in-law to come over with a giant freshly-baked strawberry-rhubarb pie. What's for dinner? Who cares!?!?

FU$K,, That hurts....
Several times over,, and over..

I kinda self-assessed, I could breathe but very shallow, didn't hear gurgling or gushing, didn't think there was more than one entry, tried to maintain deep breathing to ward off shock. I was sure I needed dust-off, but I didn't have a plan. I knew I had to keep the show going for 15-20 minutes until the 2nd flight landed with the company CO, so I could pass info. I needed my medic to very my assessment as the hit was somewhere between my left kidney and the lower end of the shoulder blade.

10,000 things going through my mind, in 1/2 sec intervals.

Did I mention it really really FU$K'N hurt?
