It was late last night when I decided to head to bed. Before doing so, I let the dog out so she was set for the night. Since she’s a nut and can not help but drag dirt and grass through the house, I stop her at the back door and wipe off her paws before letting her come inside. While standing in the doorway with a towel, her wiggly butt somehow maneuvered it’s way to the door pushing it over the top of my foot. At least I think that’s what happened as the tremendous amount of pain and spurting blood may have affected my memory a little bit.
The metal weathering material under the door somehow sliced my big toe/nail in half. Yah, that’s right, in half! After the initial shock of what happened, I screamed bloody murder and hurled myself to the ground. It was so painful. It was also the middle of the night, too late to go to the doctor. Thankfully, I didn’t die right there on the dining room floor, so I managed to wrap up my toe and clean up the puddle of blood that had formed under my foot. I didn’t sleep much so was able to get up early this morning and get in to see the doctor.
What a miserable morning! Three shots in the toe to numb it and half my toenail removed. Ick! But luckily, no stitches! Other than some twinges of pain, I feel much better albeit the giant wrap on my toe that has made it triple its size – only to fit in flip flops or slippers. I guess it could have been worse, but sheesh, what a night!
Hopefully, I’ll be able to wear real shoes by the time the first day back to school on Monday.
