My Brothers Accident.

Extracts from this document...


Before school on Tuesday 16th March my brother had gone to do his paper round. It was his second day of working for the Camberley news so he quite liked going to do it. About half an hour after he had left the phone rang, and my mum went to answer it. I was waiting for her to call me, because I thought it would be Stacey or Teri .one of them would always ring about homework or something but she didn't so I carried on watching the television. A few moments later I heard my mum crying. First of all I froze. I had never really seen my mum cry before so I didn't have a clue about what I should do. I decided to try to listen in on the conversation to find out what was going on but my mum put the phone down. I quickly sat back down thinking my mum would come in but in stead she was running around the house as though she was in a rush. ...read more.


Suddenly my mum stood back up and said she was going to ring her friend Wendy to see if she could come over to look after my little brother and I while she was at frimley park hospital. About 10 minutes later Wendy came round and my mum rushed off to pick up my dad and to go to the hospital For the rest of the day my brother was in my head just repeating and repeating about what was going on. And Wendy kept saying he's aright and will be home soon but I didn't really believe it. It felt like a dream and none of it seemed to sink in properly. I knew there had to be more to it as my mum and dad had been at the hospital for hours. Later on My mum rang home telling me not to worry and that he was going to be ok but I heard a voice in the back round telling my mum to hurry up because something had happened. ...read more.


My dad was saying he had been very lucky and that it was going to take a long time for him to get back to normal. When I saw him the next day he had a bandage around his head with a drip and loads of bruises. I didn't stay for long because He had to have lots of tests to see if different parts of his brain were working properly. It took days for him to start walking again and for his eyesight to get back to normal. He had 32 staples in the side of his head and his scar looks like a question mark. He came home a week later and didn't go to school for about a month. He was also not allowed to climb trees for six months. Its really amazing what all the doctors did my brother I found out about a month later that if the surgeon had waited 2 minutes before starting the operation he would now be dead. He also only had a 50% chance of surviving the operation without brain damage. By Samantha Maher 9GP. Words 938. 1 ...read more.
