English coursework - story writing An uncontrollable sharp stabbing pain in my jaw woke me up in complete darkness, it was the middle of a starry night and I was about ten, I had been sleeping in the top bunk bed in our Camper Van. I gave out a great cry of pain and I could hear my mum stumbling down the steps from her bed. She switched on a light and I could see blood all over the camper vans lilac floor, I could hear my sister Hannah complaining about the bright light that had awoken her from her deep sleep, Mum told her to go back to sleep. My mum took me up off the floor and placed me into the bed and I can remember jumping up and down in agony. Mum took me into the bathroom to clean up the blood and I remember her holding me on her knee while she sponged my face with a facecloth. I also remember the bathroom being very small for two people. My stepfather Davy was also at the door of the bathroom and then he turned to clean up the blood from the floor. ...read more.


I felt very sick again and I remember getting very warm and wanting to fall. Next thing I knew I was on a trolley and the lady was still very cross with me. My mum told me that I had fainted and that the x-ray would be done differently in another room with me lying on a bed. This was definitely much easier to do. We then waited for the results and my Mum told me that everything was all clear. The doctor came to see me again and explained that he was not prepared to let me go home and that I would have to stay the night for observation.

The nurse came in and told my Mum that there had been a bad car accident and that they would have to clear everyone else out of the casualty department to make room. I could hear another man shouting to get the theatre ready. Another nurse came in and started to wheel me out on the bed and while that was happening one of the car crash victims was being wheeled in ...read more.


I tried very hard and managed to open and close a wee bit. He then told me that I could go home, I was very glad. Mum got me dressed and we went back to the camper van in Benone but I asked Mum to take me back to our house. We packed up the camper and went home. It was a lovely summer�s day and we got visitors but I did not go outside I stayed in the house and played with my Nintendo. Mum kept coming in and out and giving me sprite through a syringe, as I was thirsty all the time. It took 5 days for the swelling in my mouth to go down enough for me to be able to eat something. Mum had been feeding me soup through the syringe and I managed to eat some ice cream off a teaspoon. When the swelling went down Mum took me to the dentist to check my teeth. They were okay and he was able to see from the x-ray that my adult teeth should be okay. Every time I go to the dentist he is still able to see the scar in my mouth even though I can�t. I do have a small scar on my face where I had the hole. ...read more.
