Oh, and my stud muffin Rick, cutting it up!
So after I took these awful photos, I went shopping for some Christmas gifts....SCORE! I just had to pick up a final piece of a gift we have wanted to get for one of the kids, that was at a store by or house. Yeah.
Rick dropped me off. I went into the craft store as a decoy. They left to drop friend #2 off at home. I proceed to pick up the last component... done, and done well I must say!!
I step into another store to check something out. I come out, I see them. I have my alibi ready if I needed it.
I am almost to the curb, I trip over the curb, I am falling......
I hit my right fingers first, they go all the way back and hit the back of my hand, no time to react much, I proceed to take the rest of the full force of the fall on my left cheek and boob!
Knees...they come last!
I am screaming! Rick helps me in the car. we are one the way to the Urgent Care. This happened at 5 PM.
Finally Rick picks me up at the 2nd Urgent Care (first has no X-ray that night) at 8:10PM. Guess it wasn't so urgent.
And I look like this.
Goes all the way past my elbow. I could not stop laughing in the doctors office. I feel he went a bit overboard. NOT BROKEN. he was surprised. Just major screwed up tendons, ligaments and muscles. At first he came in with a 3 foot long aluminum foil tube, I thought, you are not putting that on me, then he did this, not much better.
I am sore. I think I have a bit o whip lash, 2 sore knees, my left thumb is swollen an very sore, My boob seems OK but sore, my cheek looks like Rick gave me a nice punch to my face (no seriously officer, "I tripped up a curb") My right hand has completely given up. First the thumb, that just started feeling normal, now this.
Boy, I am sure glad I didn't go skating. Wouldn't have wanted to hurt myself!!
