Adventures in the ER - Painted Toes

I was sitting on a carpet when my foot was slit by a piece of glass. I tried to stop the bleeding, but blood dripped on the newer, off-white carpet!  My friend hopped on the Internet and read how to get blood out of carpet - a bowl of lukewarm water and mild detergent.

I ended up going to urgent care. 90 minutes later, I had received an x-ray to ensure no glass was in the wound, 5 painful shots of local anesthetic, 1 tetanus shot, and 2 stitches. I've never been awake while getting stitches!

Please note the condition of my toe nails while a very HOT doctor stitched me up. Let this be a lesson to you - Always have pretty toes. You never know when someone might see your toes!!

Like my MIL - She had pretty toes for her impromptu ankle procedure today!
