Tuesday Tell All

I stole today's topic from my darling sister Jayne.

Today's topic is worst injury you have ever received. Wow. This could really get gory.

I was thinking that my worse injury was falling and getting wedged between the sink and toilet and breaking my collarbone...but then i remembered my toe!!

My big toe got smooshed off by a badminton stand in high school gym. It was pretty coo. There was a A LOT of blood. When i took my shoe off it poured out like a pitcher of Koolaid. The doctor managed to pull some skin up and over the top and make it look kinda normal but i have a tiny little toenail now and no bone in the top half of my toe. It broke the rest of my toes and they healed a bit crooked. I have an awesome foot now. When it first happened my Mom said "Well that's gross, no man will ever marry you now." She was kidding but look what happened!!!!! It was a curse! Kidding, love you Mom. I'm sure my toe has nothing to do with my single status...

Hmmmm... OK, haven't posted this one on my blog but... had our beloved Great Dane collide at about 80km/hour (felt like) with me when I was six months pregnant with Dash, while walking on the beach. I flew up then down, bottom half of leg went one way, top half the other. Not pretty. Doctors said it resembled a motorcycle injury (thanks to all that relaxin pregnancy hormone). Busted posterior cruciate ligament and lateral corner (for the medically minded). Three full-on knee surgeries later and a total of 18 months official "non-weight bearing recuperation" (HA! try that with a toddler!) I'm still a lame duck...

PS Boy that was a downer!!! Sorry... still impressed by your smooshed and gushing big toe though!

Jayne said...

I am impressed by any injury, since I have no really impressive injuries to tell about. We're talking to broken bones, no stitches, nothing. Well, once I crashed pretty gnarly going stupidly fast on my skis and messed up my neck. Nothing a chiropractor couldn't fix.
I'm hoping my kids are just like me and not their father...

Sorry for the curse Kate :-(
I believe your still single, cause your just way to smart and gorgeous for the meathead men in this local!!!
Jayne, I too have never had a 'gory' injury...BUT, I once waited TWO hours for a boy to meet me under a tree, in the pouring rain...and he never showed up! Serious, crushing injury to the heart! I did survive though. Stupid boys!

I totally remember the toe incident, although I wasn't in that class. Yuck! Nothing too serious has happened with me. I got shot in the leg with an arrow by my cousin, but it only went in like an inch, so nothing serious.

Oooh good call, I got a fishhook in my knee when I was 3. That was gory. My grandpa had to cut off the string end and push it through because of the barbed end. I stepped on a nail once, but who hasn't?

Wow kids, these are some good ones! Mom - i don't remember hearing that story! When was that? And i do remember one gory one with you. We were at IFA buying feeders for the new chickens and you cut your finger on the metal. There was A LOT of blood but you just wrapped your hand up and drove yourself to the hospital..with four kids in the car to boot. You were really white and kinda fainty. I was scared but you were Mom The Superhero like always. Don't you still have a scar from that?

BB - You really should do a post about that! That's a great story. i am sorry that you are still lame though. YOu get extra points for being pregnant at the time. WOW!

Jayne - Nothing gory? Really? I keep thinking that something happened at camp...maybe it was just Mac. Hmmm. The fishhook is bad enough my dear, ouch!

Carrie - Only went in an INCH!!! An inch into the body is pretty deep my dear. Was this when i lived there? I remember you got your tooth knocked out, or it was hit hard and died? That always gave me the shivers.
