My First Ambulance Ride

Well, I did my tough stunt last night and honestly it could have gone better. I got hit by a car as I walked across the street...on purpose, twice. I took a pretty hard hit to the head on the second take. Getting hit by the car was fine it was falling off the car that sucked. I got accidentally thrown off the top of the car because the driver swerved and the momentum threw me off and I landed on cement directly on my head. Luckily I had a small pad in between my wig and my head that I just happened to hit when I landed. Once I landed I knew I was hurt. They had a ton of paramedics and an ambulance on set ready in case something happened. They all rushed into check on me. I tried to sit up but I was really dizzy and couldn't. I am assuming it must be what boxers feel when they get knocked out and try to get up. I felt like I was drunk.

As a form of precaution they took me to the hospital with a neck brace on. I had a CT scan to make sure my brain wasn't bleeding and I didn't break my neck. I ended up having a concussion but after a few hours they let me go back to the hotel. The good news is they got the shot and it looks super cool. It is all just part of the job. I think every stuntman has their story or stories of work injuries. We flew Jon out so he was there which made me feel a ton better.

I am totally fine today I just feel a bit dizzy which is just part of the concussion. Thanks for everyone's prayers. When I can I will put the car hit video up.

Tis not the first time you have nor last time you shall be accused of being a dizzy blonde. So powerful are your natural blonde tendancies that they appear even when you are not sporting blonde hair - can't hide the truth I suppose! I do want to see that clip when you get it, I always wanted to know how that type of stunt was put together. I gather, with your new found talent, everyone will be wanting to hit you with a car perhaps you and I could put something together for our Florida trip, you know entertain the family? I think I will upgrade to a Hummer.
