My Worst Injury
We've all managed to injure ourselves. What was your worst injury?
My worst injury happened about ten years ago. My oldest daughter was about 14, and was being a royal pain in the butt on this particular day. I started across the living room toward her, misjudged my path and ran straight into a living room chair. I thought that I had just stubbed my toe on the wooden leg of the chair, so I didn't pay much attention to the pain I felt the rest of the day.
When I woke up the next morning, however, there was no doubt I had done more damage than just stubbing a toe. Almost all of my foot was a deep purple, and very swollen---and I couldn't put my weight on it. So we got dressed and I hobbled to the car and spent several hours in the ER. Turned out I had broken a bone in my foot, so I went home with an ace bandage, a walking boot, and a pair of crutches. That was the LONGEST summer of my life!!
