        We have had days and days of rain.  Finally a hot sunny summer day.
        I went out to dig up 8 bushes that are 8 years old, they are pretty big and it's back breaking labor.....for me anyway.  woo

        I hosed the base to make it easier to dig and jumped, with wet tennis shoes, onto the shovel.  A big brach drove into my shin.  Holy Crap.... the pain.  

        Do I go to urgent care and spend a $75 copay or just try and take care of it mysefl?  Can't take the pain...gotta hobble in.

        Dr. gives me 6 injections to numb around the area but doesn't wait for it to take affect before he takes a saline syringe and inserts it directly into the puncture wound.   amp;  I hadn't eaten all day, was zy and dizzy from pain so asked if I could lie down.  LOL   He proceeded to poke, prod and dig out little pieces of dirty bark before sewing 6 stiches.


        4 bushes left in the ground, new plants can't be planted and I have to be off my leg for 2 weeks.  :(  

        Rant over.... things could be worse but still.......

        Sorry to hear Gabby.  Also, looks like the doctor got to you quickly enough so it should be ok.
        Perhaps there could be someone with you to assist when your leg heals.

        Thanks Pacer.  I have a husband and kids who are here to help.  I should have let hubby dig out the dang bushes but when I get something in  my mind......

        OMG gabby... when you do something you really do it! I am so sorry to hear of your pain. I can practically feel it.    That was to kiss it and make it better!

        Thanks guys. 

        I just called my son up to look at it... really look at it.... I'm so mature. It looks like ground hamburger inside and it's still bleeding, even with the stiches.

        Ugh....poor baby!!!

        What a day to spend the nice sunny day in the hospital and I can only imagine how painful it must have been.......
        Stitches are no fun!
        I hope the pain will soon go away and the wound will heal as fast as it can.

          I was cringing when I read it.  You poor thing Gabby.  I hope it is better quickly.

          Definitely get your hubby to finish it off for you.

          UPDATE:

          Well, it got infected.  Bad.

          I now have cellulitis 21cm long and 9cm wide.  If it spreads a cm either way... I'm in the hospital for IV antibiotics.

          Hopefully the oral antibiotic works quickly...

            A ya ya ya...

            That is so horrible,Gabby but I found out that it's pretty normal for stitches get infected so hopefully antibiotic will not only heal but ease the itchiness and pains.
            Hang in there my friend!
