Told Her Not To ,,,,,,,.
Local ranch lady was needing some help installing temporary plywood to keep mountain lion out of goat .shelter, until metal is delivered.
Told her I would be over this morning to help. Before I got there, she picked up a sheet of 4 x 8 three-quarter inch plywood. There was a slight breeze that turned her sideways and instead of letting go of the plywood, she tried to control it. Just as I arrived, she fell to the ground, holding her stomach. The scream was loud and shrill.
I managed to get her jacket unzipped, and I could see a bulge beneath her shirt. Yep, a navel hernia !! Got a compress on it and off to the hospital.
An hour and a half later, emergency surgery got her back on her feet. She was bound and determined to finish the project. With a little coarse language, OK, it was cussing, I convinced her to stay in the truck until I finished the enclosure. Me thanks she’s going to be a wee bit sore tomorrow..🤣
