I broke my ring finger on the right hand tonight. Top part of the finger which the doc called it a mallet finger! Nice one Cathy! I am lefty klutz...right during the busy hour just after 5 pm when Cliff was just getting in the door from work. Right when we had one in the bath because they got into Vaseline, one was in the bassinet, one was in the tub, two were cleaning up the Vaseline from our bathroom. I am not enjoying spring break so far. The kids felt so bad, and they were all crazy crying when I left...just like when I went into labour with Coco. Figures right!
How did I get a Mallet Finger? By bending down as I always do and picking up blankets (that the big girls were supposed to pick up after making a huge fort in the kitchen btw) and my (previously broken finger by big Vesna P in between grades 10-11 in a fight) finger hit the wooden bannister and I heard a CRACK...And I freaked. I heard it break and it hurt immediately. And I drove myself to the hospital. I had x rays done. I waited and waited with my bag of ice from home. I then had a splint put on. I have to wear it to hold the break in place for 4-6 weeks. So, tomorrow I have to set up a doctors appointment for this week. I also need to go search out a plastic splint for the finger. They didn't have up to date stuff in the ER. From start to finish I was in the ER for about 2.5 hours.
Now, I have to adapt to my situation. How to shower etc? I am not sure what to do about that just yet? I guess a big plastic bag and masking tape. And, I need to go get some new brushes for my make up (that I still haven't replaced from the "INCIDENT") as tomorrow I will not have tools to put on my face.
Anyways, enough on this.
