Blog #28 - OUCH!
So when I was unemployed I fell asleep and my tablet chipped my incisor. As soon as I had benefits (the 17th) I went to the dentist to get it fixed. Well he found it was also surrounded by infect, that when I hit my face somehow I had damaged the nerves. Root canal here I come. I wasn't in pain until then. The following week I was in agony. Not sure why tooth pain so bad. I barely slept. Couldn't function. Finally this last Tuesday I got it fixed!! YES PAIN IS GONE. On Wednesday, I was going to go walk my 5km at lunch when my mom asked me to meet her for lunch at the mall. Gah! The mall,, or walking. Well I picked the mall.
I walked the way I always do. I got on the first escalator and I felt something pull at my sandal. (which I just had to wear to look cute in my new dress. Can't wear runners and a pretty dress and look cute duh) My foot felt funny but I continued on and made it to the second escalator. I looked down at my foot. There was a bit of blood on my sandal.
I got to the store and asked for some paper to wrap around my toe so I could look and go back to work for a bandaid. When I took off my shoe.. it was covered in blood. Security was called. They wanted me to take an ambulance after they cleaned the cut. My husband rushed down to get me (we live about 10 minutes away)
He took me to the clinic and I had to get 8 stitches in my big toe. MOST PAINFUL thing ever. Keep in mind that I had a 9lb baby. They had to stick 3 long needles up the sides of my toe to numb it. My husband had to hold me down.
So right now my activeness is completely sidelined as I can't walk :( Just as I posted I was feeling better and ready to dance :(
