It’s typical Lloyd behaviour really. He can travel across the world, do the worlds highest bungee jump, play with elephants and tigers and swim with sharks without getting a scratch but then come back here and get knocked unconcious while he’s on an excursion in Sydney observing frogs.
He was playing soccer during a break and I can imagine he would’ve been trying because I’ve passed on a mean competitive streak. Then he gets kicked in the head and he’s out for twenty minutes. They called an ambulance and they did whatever they do and left him to it because he seemed okay. But he said he couldn’t remember why he was in Sydney and he couldn’t remember things that had happened earlier in the week. So of course I’m now going to spend the rest of the day expecting him to suddenly drop dead, because you do hear of that happening. Sigh. Must send him a text actually telling him to go to the doctor immediately if he feels unwell. Because he doesn’t. He told me he doesn’t like causing a scene and putting the nurses out. THAT’S THEIR JOB!! I always say.
There was one funny thing about it though. This is a camping trip and Lloyd doesn’t have a tent so he just set up his bedding and sleeping bag under a tree. But then he met a french girl who had a tent but no bedding so she said – lets share – so he moved into her tent. But then after the head knock he woke up in the tent through the night and saw her and didn’t have a clue who she was. And not only was she there he said every time he woke up and looked over she was sitting there staring at him. Thats because the ambo’s had told them that someone had to watch him overnight as you do with people who’ve had a head knock. So he thought he’d just been abducted by some french stalker.
When do they say those danger years for young men end? At age 25 I think so only four years to go.
