The driver was swerving to keep from hitting the deer, when the car crashed into a telephone pole, splitting the car in two.Â All 6 of the high school kids riding in the car lived. My cousin’s son, however, who had been riding in the backseat, was severely injured.Â He was thrown from the car, the seat belt cut an artery in his neck, and a tree went through his knee. Still, thankfully, no one was killed.When he was conscious, and the surgeons were still busy working on him, his mother leaned over and said, “Were you just praying to God the whole time?”
His response? “Yeah. I was praying, God, please don’t let me die a virgin.”
The surgeons had to back away from the table because they were laughing so hard. A few days later when the boys was feeling better, the surgeons came in with a hat, with some money inside. The said, “We felt sorry for you. So, we took a collection, and now we just have to find a nurse who’s willing.”
Yes, it’s really true.
My goodness. Who SAYS American health care isn’t terrific? Those folks are awesome….and not just because of their medical skills. Thanks for the story!
Fantastic story! What a great family you have. I think the positive attitude & laughing with the doctors always helps with recovery. Best wishes for a complete recovery to him, xx
Amazingly funny. And that he would say that out loud…
I am so glad he is okay and that is such a funny story .It’s amazing how a teenagers mind works isn’t it.
Love the story…too funny. Glad he’s ok now. Thanks for visiting! 🙂
Those wacky surgeons. Now, if it had been the anesthesiologists I’d understand…Off-gassing, you know. 🙂
Ha ha! That’s funny. Those are some doctors with a good bedside manner.
Kids… gotta love ’em! I guess it just goes to prove there was no brain injury, lol. He knew what was most important!
That was just awesome.
Brilliant! Thank goodness it wasn’t worse, and thank goodness it was as good (blogworthy) as it was.
Oh wow. That’s all I can say. What a great kid! So glad no one was killed.
