The doctor’s office is the last place you want to be, especially after a car accident. It doesn’t take a head injury to set your mind spinning, with worries whizzing through your mind as you sit in the waiting room.
Summer is a busy time for many South Carolinians, with families shunning schedules to enjoy spontaneous fun. Whether they’re dashing through sprinklers or driving to the beach, folks are on the move. Emergency rooms experience the same boost in activity, coinciding with the increase in time spent outdoors.
The scent of fresh cut grass and backyard barbecues. The delighted shrieks of kids playing in the sprinkler. The long days and balmy nights that define summer in the South.
