So I got stitches for the first time tonight. Generally was fun and semi-festive except for the "Thank you for not crying" lady that was just creepy. She freaked out over the camera too since I had projectyellow
with me to keep my boredom from getting me in trouble. :)
Basically I was fighting with a dresser in the rain on a stairwell (it was raining and the dresser was covered in shrink wrap). End result was falling in slow motion backwards from three steps up while pushing the dresser away from me. I ended up landing on my right hand/elbow. Now it took me a couple minutes to know I was hurt, since it was then that Kyle pointed it out to me. After that it a quick hosing (I landed next to it!) and then paper towels and more shrink wrap on the arm to keep the blood at bay.
At this point someone felt obligated to go to the store to get me medical supplies. So I proceeded to continue to move things to the truck (well duh). So once they had returned with the medical supplies (large bandaids and hydrogen peroxide) I went to the bathroom to "clean up". It was only then with a mirror that I could actually see the wound (backside of elbow, and no I didn't try to lick it). After showing it to everyone (they came by the bathroom) we decided I should get stitches.
So I ended up getting 5 after being in ER for 2 hours. You can see some pics here
