So you know that expression ‘they have a stick up their butt?’ Well it was a pencil. At least that’s what happened to one of our patients. Poor thing. He’s 15 years old and went to sit at his desk at school. As he was sitting down a classmate put a pencil under his bottom and he sat on it. I felt so bad for him. When we got the call I figured it was either another kid trying to get out of school or he was being dramatic. He was given some morphine en route to the hospital and was happy as pie when we took him inside.
