|On the way to the clinic|
My relaxing sense turned to a bit of anxiety after I responded to the buzzing in my pocket and read the text message on my phone. Sera, who I left doing some last minute cleaning with my granddaughter Robyn, had sent the message. She had received a call that Daniel, one of her boys, had climbed up a tall tree on the way home from school, but didn't climb down. He had fallen a good distance and had been taken to the nearest clinic where he was unable to talk.

The trip home for the airport revealed that there were actually two nurses on the team. Dawn and Byron went with Pam, Don, and me to the asses the condition of Daniel Saturday morning. He was in serious pain from apparent injuries to his neck and possibly his shoulder blade. But he was conscious, speaking, and responding well to questions.
