Watch Where You Step



Little over a year ago I was shooting off a lake dock. The water was down and I was having a blast shooting the fun in the water. Before I know it I’m falling. I did save the camera by spinning and throwing it on the dock….5d mk ii….and managed to grab the dock with my left arm. Snap! splash!….the fish heard every cuss word the English language offered. Several of my buddies tried to put the shoulder back into the socket at the lake house, Lethal weapon scene is a lie….fyi. Well the Doc said at least not with my injury. The arm was completely out of the socket, not half way like Mel’s. You could put your finger 2 inches into the socket….yeah.  Few hours later 8 over sized male nurses are walking into my ER curtain room like a mafia interrogation squad. Lots of morphine, oxygen, man power, and pain later…it was in.

In the pic, note the guy smiling…apparently I’m quite the charmer under morphine.  Moral of the story…don’t be an idiot like me. Sucker injury still hurts to do some movements.

Life is like that though.  You can be so caught up in what your doing and forget to look at where you’re REALLY at.  Dream…Absolutely.  Push yourself….no doubt.  But be realistic, be smart in your moves.  Hustle but don’t count on anything tomorrow, cause anything can change. Don’t assume anything.

    I dislocated my elbow out of the socket 2 years ago. I know this pain. Popping it in is not what many would call fun or easy.

    Ouch. I can’t imagine! The worse I’ve experience is waking up to my leg completely numb, and when I tried to walk on it, all I saw was it dangling like a limp rag! Blood finally flowed back after 10 minutes, but it was not a good feeling!!!
