Friday morning i wake up at 4am and take a shower. then i get a phone call from Emily saying "i feel sick and i dont wanna go to California anymore" so i tell Rachel and Bryan. and i realize i forgot to tell Rachel we had no tickets, to this sold out event. so Rachel freaks out and says we arent going for a minute but then decides we are because she already got work off for those 2 days and dammit she is going to California no matter what. so the 3 of us head out to cali.
we made great time and got to phils house at about 1pm or noon. we chilled there for a second then i forget why we all went into phils van but i do remember his van and where i sat.
next thing i remember i am in a hospital bed and there is a blue curtain on either side of me and a woman giving birth on one side and Bryan and my sis are both like "it's gunna be ok ryan dont worry"
so somewhere in there i am told i was being "squirrely" and jumping around and walking kinda funny and i tried jumping onto a planter and my face ate the sidewalk and i was knocked unconscious.
so then i remember being moved into a big ugly private room and wondering where my pants were, and why i had a neck brace when my neck didn't hurt a bit. Bryan, my sister and i missed the save eric show and stayed in the hospital until 2pm Saturday afternoon.
while at the hospital a few things i remember were
1. lots of asian doctors and nurses. all of which were beautiful.
2. yelling at them when they asked if i wanted drugs.
3. refusing to let anyone help me urinate and eat
4. pissing on myself but eventually mastering the art of urinating into a bottle while laying flat in a bed using only your left hand.
before we left for az we stopped at a jamba juice and i had the best smoothy ever. we arrived an hour after bryans show had started and i am told it was a great success [congratulations again dude]
i have had many visitors in the past day. mostly family. but now that my lip isn't as swollen i would love to get some more. also phone calls are great too even though i might not say much except "this sucks"
i broke my wrist and i have a cast and a sling for it and i got some nasty cuts on my mouth but thats all. nothing too bad. the doctors said i should be good to go in 2 weeks so hopefully before my show on the 16th.
also the websites i maintain and my e-mails will not be updated until i am out of this cast most likely. and i am so sorry.
