The Great Injury of 2010

Posted this on Facebook, but wanted to repost it here.

Friday October 1st:

Went to the hospital today. Smashed 2 fingers in my garage door trying to close it without power. Lossed my middle right fingernail when I pulled the fingers free. To make it worse, to get back into the house, I went to the front door and rang the doorbell (no power) and while waiting for Sharron to answer, passed out in a heap on the porch.

When I awoke, I thought I was going to throw up, so I leaned over the side of the porch, only to pass out again. This time I woke up in the mud (we were in the middle of a monsoon storm). This time when I rang the doorbell (still without power) Sharron answered. She cleaned me up and took me to the ER. They x-rayed me and put a fake fingernail on (no really!). I’m fine, but will have to see a hand surgeon in 1-2 weeks.

Definitely one of the worst days of my life (yes I know, I’m blessed).

What’s really been bothering me is that I could have easily landed in a mud puddle and drowned…
