Introduction

Emily Capes

A Personal Experience

I awoke to the eerie sounds of the hospital at night and lay on the stiff bed, staring up at the blank ceiling, unable to slip into blissful sleep once again. The rigid smell of the hospital flooded my nostrils and brought back unwelcome memories as I strained to breathe. For a moment I wondered what I was doing here, and then the painful memories returned. I thought about what was to come and how my life would proceed considering what had happened. Would it change a great deal or would it return to normal once the procedures to repair the damage were complete?

It all began just two days ago, Dad was at the top of our long field, weeding some unruly nettles and I was leading my horse, ‘Fuse’, up from the bottom of the field in order to take him to the weekly lesson we have together.

The wind whipped against my face as trees rushed by. The rest of the world became unfocused, a blur.

When I finally reached her I ripped the shirt from my back and wrapped it around her head to slow the bleeding. I saw that she had a deep wound across her face displacing her nose and exposing the raw bone. There was no time to think, I knew I had to get her to hospital.

Conclusion

It was a relief to see her looking well again. The majority of her face was covered by a large white mask; her left eye was swollen and red but she was still smiling

Since the accident, friends and family insisted on commenting on how lucky I was not to have suffered a more serous injury. At the time I couldn’t have felt any less lucky but looking back, if Fuse had of kicked me just a few inches further towards the brain, he could have caused permanent damage… or worse!

    This is a result of the power supply used, as the current will increase with voltage. The larger current will affect the resistance causing energy loss as heat in the wires.
