This has been an unusual weekend… I’m actually glad it’s over.
I’ve had a head cold from heck, which has turned into a sinus infection and, I spent most of Saturday with my oldest daughter and the girls fast pitch softball team, making Christmas wreaths.
They needed new uniforms and some genius had the idea to have the girls sell, then make Christmas wreaths.
I’ll be nice and say… it’s a good thing that most of the wreaths were purchased by and going to the girl’s family members.
We had to make 5 of them. The raw materials were real fir, pine, cedar, and holly branches, which we had to wire onto a frame. By the time we were done, my hands and fingers were sore and cut to shreds.
It’s for a good cause…. it’s for a good cause….. lol
From there I went to our local ER.
A few days before I had stepped on a piece of glass (cat on counter, cat knocks glass off of counter, Steph thinks that she got all the glass cleaned up but was sadly mistaken)
I had a small piece that I couldn’t get out, and it was driving me crazy.
It was my lucky day… "Nurse Ratched" was working!
My love and apologies to my dear friend Jean, but, I’m thinking that most nurses are sadists!
First she has me soak my foot… no problem. Then she has me turn over on my stomach and she says, "Well IF I have to do much digging, I’ll numb you up."
I’m thinking… IF??? DIGGING???
She proceeds to dig for the piece of glass in the bottom of my foot.
I’m pretty tough, but after a few deep digs I let out a, yelp, to which she says… "Yep it’s in too deep, I’m gonna numb you up."
Sheesh, YA THINK???
She comes back in the room and gives that ol, "You’ll feel a slight prick and a sting…"
HOLY #$%&!!!! SWEET @#$$#%^&#$!!! SON OF A #%$(*!!!
One of the nurses that knows me personally says, "Steph, I think you left nail marks in the vinyl of the bed!"
She’s lucky I didn’t leave a foot mark in the face of that other nurse! Giving birth was less painful than that shot.
I was told later that she went in the cut, under the glass and was for all intents and purposes digging and wiggling the needle.
They are just lucky that I’m not big on swearing or the poor little boy on the other side of the curtain would have heard some really nice words!
I was thinking them though….
Once I was numbed up they got the glass out fast and easy.
Then before I could have a really righteous pity party, I hear that they have an x-ray on it’s way back for them to look at… It seems that there was a gentleman there who had shot a huge nail into his foot… Kinda ruined my feeling sorry for myself… lol
This week has got to be better… right?? BIG HUGS, Steph
