Visit to the ER Last Night...

Friday, March 09, 2012

So last night I was making homemade baked sweet potato fries. I was slicing the potatoes on a cheap slicer, my hand slipped, and I'll spare you the gory details, but I hurt my thumb.

Went to the ER, which became a four hour ordeal. Couldn't get stitches because it is a superficial wound, but they had to wrap it extremely well to stop the bleeding. Sigh. This is no good for a massage therapy student.

Anyway, yesterday was the first day since the 27th of Dec that I didn't get at least a 30 min walk on the treadmill, and I probably wont today either. My streak is broken.

Never got those pesky sweet potato fries,either emoticon

    Hope your thumb heals quickly for you.

Did you know you can get sweet potato fries in the freezer section at some grocery stores? Just thought you would enjoy that bit of news, and it eliminates cut fingers too.

    Even though the slicer may be evil I think it should also be considered your best friend! It knew those sweet potato fries weren't that great for you so it decided to prevent you from eating them by hurting your finger. You never know!

PS sorry you missed out on the sweet potato fries and the workouts but things will get better and you will get back on track just hang in there. It will happen you can do it!

    Hang in there and congratulations on the amount of time that you were successful in getting in the 30 minute walks. Sometimes we need to stop focusing on what we didnt or werent able to do and just revel in what we have accomplished. I dont mean stay where u are but atleast look back and see where it has brought u! Good luck and hope the thumb is better soon! emoticon
