You are ok. Stay calm." I realized I was tightly strapped to a board and couldn’t move if I wanted to. My legs hurt. My ribs hurt. My shoulders hurt. I couldn’t figure out what had happened. I couldn’t process where I was. I felt like I was coming out of a dream, but I couldn’t remember the dream. I couldn’t open my eyes. The doctor asked, "What day is it?" I responded, "I have no idea." I forgot to say that I usually have no idea what day it is. Patiently, the doctor asked, "Who is the president?" I thought to myself 'George Bush' but I paused, knowing that wasn’t correct. After a short time, I answered "Barack Obama". "What is your name?" "Brad." "Good. You seem ok. Do you know what day it is yet?" I responded, "I generally don’t know what day it is."
