A Lesson in Life

Today I visited my sister at the Kernan Rehab Hospital.  She fell one day and hit her head, she got up as if though everything was OK. Everything wasn't OK. There was no bleeding and she went on her merry way. Her personality began to change. She would lose her balance when walking along. She would holler through out the night and would cry out for no reason. This went on for several months. One day she went to the emergency room and they did a MRI, she was bleeding in the head and had fluid build up. They had to operate immediately. My lesson is to go to the hospital if you hit your head. Although you can't see the damage, doesn't mean that there isn't any. She has lost 60% of her memory and has to learn things all over again. Her life is changed forever.
