Situation Looking Up.


  • October 6, 2015 at 12:16 am

    So…where was all the blood coming from? He seems to be standing up well enough.

    Compound fracture … Any excuse to get that top off, hey?

  • October 6, 2015 at 12:22 am

    Well, Zed’s sense of humor’s in one piece. So who’s runnin’ the UAV?

  • October 6, 2015 at 12:23 am
    little bit

    He’s standing and conscious. That’s all I needed to see.

  • October 6, 2015 at 12:33 am

    Still coughing……still a possible punctured lung.

  • October 6, 2015 at 12:43 am

    Not being able to remember you’re married to Sam… what a horrible situation!

  • October 6, 2015 at 12:58 am

    Wowza! I can’t wait for the UAV video to be youtube uploaded.

  • October 6, 2015 at 1:21 am

    Somebody’s butt is not going to be fine in a couple of days.

  • October 6, 2015 at 1:26 am

    And the clouds get even darker.

      (And the owner of that $18,000+ drone stands a good chance of losing it. Small, light aircraft are cute and portable, but they suffer comparatively more from high winds.)

    Some people have a talent for getting in trouble for telling the truth.

    Sam is fine.

      Well, unless you count those big bruises on her right shoulder, right wrist and left lower torso. Those are deep ones, and they’re going to need treatment ASAP as much as Zed’s injuries do.

      She could have a greenstick break of the radius or ulna on the right arm, a fractured wrist, and/or a cracked pauldron (shoulder socket) and not know it.

      Shock, the need to care for another, and running on 110-octane adrenalin can have the effect of you not noticing your own injuries until you come back down from the crisis reaction. Then you notice because it hurts like hell.

      Seen it for real.

        My concern is with the bruise on her left lower torso. Could be a possible ruptured spleen. Those generally do not manifest right away as the spleen capsule contains any bleeding…for a while.

        You’re right DCE, ruptured spleen is a hidden killer. Let’s hope the cavalry is on the way.

    Always been been particularly partial to ski-jumps like that!

    Zed is okay in the head. He didn’t say, “This sling helps, man, thanks.” Besides, that ain’t no lady – that’s Sam – though it is hard to make the comparison sometimes.

    Black sky by night,
    Special Ops delight.
    Black sky by day,
    Hope for better way.

    ‘Tis true – Zed doesn’t no Sam.

    She brightens the day – her headlights are always on.

    Chris- Please tell me why there wasn’t a GO bag in the car? Considering how far out the DD is from anything, it’s a necessity to be properly covered in cases of emergency. As this is, and Sam now isn’t.

    • October 6, 2015 at 9:17 pm

      I didn’t see a trunk fly open, or it fly out , but either may have occurred. Then stolen. the invader do plunder as they can. I believe this is the first long outing with the rebuilt vehicle. Patterns are broken. Procedures may not be followed. Mistakes can be made. Hope the people getting the show are good guys, no matter who they may be working for.
      Good point.

    I am sure a LOT of help us on the way now. And no doubt, some helpful EMT will wanna check Sam for any further chest injury.

  • October 6, 2015 at 8:38 am

    That must be some really tiny pilots in that batwing!

    Ok, this is getting serious, I was so into the story that I clean missed the first time through that Sam was nekkid………………..

    My hat is off to you Chris, that’s the mark of a heck of a storyteller.
