Friday evening in ER

ww

We had rather an eventful Friday. The kids and I were excited to head over to our friends’ house across the street for some Friday R&R. Our Husbands arrived after work and we were all settling into a fun evening of conversation and wine. I decided I needed the loo before I got comfortable chatting outside. I got up with gusto and headed promptly towards the powder room. Only I didn’t realize that their glass sliding door was shut…oh yes…it was dusk, there was no reflection and I walked smack bang right into it. All I remember saying as it shattered was ‘Oh no I thought it was open!’.

My Husband took me straight to ER where I had 8 stitches in my left boob where a shard had slit the skin – it could have been way worse and I am happy to report I still have 2 nipples. I have a very black eye and feel very remorseful about the damage I caused. On the plus side the doctor who stitched me was a hot and I got some great pain meds 🙂 Every cloud and all that!

I’ve been well cared for by the kids and my amazing husband – who is now applying tape to all our glass doors – laugh a minute hey!?

I actually managed to properly dress myself today, though makeup and contact lenses are still a step too far. If only it had been closer to Halloween I wouldn’t even need to think about a costume!

At least I made it to 43 before having stitches or a black eye!

    I’m so disappointed there isn’t a selfie with the hot doctor – lol!!! Glad you’re on the mend – sounded scary and yet, so easily done…just as well it was a grown up and not a child. Get well soon – it’s not affected your style one bit gorgeous x

      It’s been lovely not messing with makeup this week – I’ll feel much better now I’m off the pain meds too!

    I love that you can laugh about it – and I’m grateful that that’s a pic of the stitches and not of the gaping wound (I am rubbish around blood). Yeah – where is the pic of the hot doc?

      Can you believe I didn’t get a photo of him!? He was very cute and quite sympathetic – I guess you have to be working in ER!

    May I share? When I was 17 (waaay back) I was sent on an exchange visit to Amsterdam, v. cool. The (v.cool) family invited all the neighbors round for drinks in the garden to meet de Engelse… and I after a couple of glasses I didn’t notice they’d closed the French windows. I knocked myself out, but without any spectacular injuries other than wounded teenage pride. However, I can still remember to this day the noise (sonic boom) it made and the spooky clinking of glasses.
    I wish you a speedy recovery!

      Ha – it’s so funny – the number of people who have had similar incidents! They only talk about it though when someone else they know does it! I’m on the mend – now we both have great stories:)

      I am being well taken care of – the kids and the Husband have been amazing – though there have been a few jokes at my expense too:)

    OMG – that’s horrific! S*d the damage to their door!! Why didn’t they have safety glass?!? Wouldn’t have splintered and ended up in your boob!! Hope you feel better soon

      I was lucky – it was one of the original windows from 1950s so it had done well to last so long! On the mend now though thank you x
