If you do not like the sight of blood do not go any further....there are pictures attached that may make you vomit...just sayin'
If you do decide to keep reading and do vomit...don't say I didn't warn you.
Long story short...I got completely bombed on Saturday night at my friends party.
( which by he way it was a GREAT party! Food, drinks, and a DJ...what more could ya want?)
Anyways I was very drunk and it was 3 in the morning when the Duke and I decided to go home ( well to my parents house - we were about 3 hours from our actual house)
and as we were walking out the garage door I was simultaneously turning around to say some witty comment upon my exit when I hit the cement step and fell. I landed with a thud, sat stunned...and then started laughing uncontrollably!! I couldn't stop.
I do this whenever I fall or I see someone else fall. To me it is the most hilarious thing ever and No it does not matter if they are really hurt or not. Awful, I know.
I guess nobody really saw me fall except the Duke. He made sure I was OK and then we both laughed all the way to the car..which was actually quite a ways. When we got in, I bent down to see my leg because I was pretty sure I had a nasty bruise. However, when I touched it..it was wet and gooey!
I turned to the Duke and held up my hand and said "Is this blood?"
Duke freaked out because when he turned on the light in the car..there was lots of blood..lots.
He pulled the car up to the house and ran to get some bandages, towels, whatever...
Everyone then came running out the house and they totally freaked on me!
Saying things like
"OMG..its like a piece of meat is hanging off!"
"we need bandages..STAT"
"i'm gonna faint"
As for me I was still laughing.... I felt like it was all I could do.
They did bandage me up..see pic below..and off to the hospital I went.
**amazing, the things you can do with Duct tape**
Yes..my foot is swollen...I do not have cankles.
The Duke did make a pit stop at my parent's house to pick them up so they could actually drive us there..because the Duke had a lot to drink too and they are luck was going we didn't want to chance it.
Its always nice to surprise your parents with a trip to the ER at 3:30 in the morning!
I wish I could say that was first time...but that's for another post.
Are you ready for the pics??? Remember I did warn you!
I am going to rock the mini skirt this summer..fo sho
For some reason ( read..pain meds) I was making the Duke and my mom give two thumbs up. I made them do this pose like 5 times. Why...who knows?
At 6:30 am I was finally let go and all they did was put a bandage on. I guess they couldn't "salvage" my skin..so they referred me to a wound clinic. Seriously??
I went to the "wound clinic" today. Apparently they have to leave the wound open and let the skin die off. DIE OFF??!!
I have a huge ass dressing that I have to change twice a day, a ruined pair of jeans, blood soaked shoes..that I am pretty sure a ruined too , blood in my new Escape, and I can't swim all summer.
Oh yeah...I am totally bruised up to my thigh and I have a Hematoma on the other leg too.
Yay for my first day of summer break!!
Moral of the story: Don't try to be funny, just look where you are walking.
