ended up in the hospital

Do not end up in the hospital for days like me.



I was on a Permagreen spraying 2 acres. Finished up okay. Rode up the dyke that divides the field and parking lot. Started down the other side the machine kicked into neutral. Took off fast into the paved lot. It turned fast and threw me ..... I landed onto my head. Knocked me out. I crawled to my truck. About a half hour later one my gius saw me. Came over and told him to keep an eye on me. I should have said.... Call a ambulance. A hour or more layer he and my flower girl came over.

She had worked at a hospital and knew I needed help. I could not talk well or walk. Any how three days later and a concussion later I came home for three days more off work.

Maybe I need a helmet

Being dizzy is my problem right now

thank you Russell, I agree. I think I might have to wear a helmet now ?? LOL

But I do see why those guys riding bikes without helmets are foolish.
