black thursday

Yesterday morning....started all the norm. Hit the snooze button twice before I finally got up at 6:45. Gathered my clothes for the day, turned the shower on, brushed my teeth, got in the shower......felt really dizzy....then....nothing.

Next thing I know, I wake up on the floor face down in my own blood. I'd completely passed out and don't remember anything past thinking, "Ughh, I think I am going to throw up" it's like a black hole...I came to moaning my husband's name, then realizing that he is 10 hours away from home. So I pull myself on my feet and try to think of what to do, all the while convincing myself that I am dying. Take a peek in the mirror and start freaking out because my chin is splayed open and there is actualy skin...HANGING from my chin.

What a way to start my day.

After a full day in the hospital...and a series of x-rays, CAT scans, blood work, and my fav, an IV.....I am now home with 8 stitches in my chin but feeling MUCH better thanks to some pain meds *non-drowsy of course...since I have 2 runts to look after!*, and some anti-biotics. My sinuses are clearing up, I've taken my med's, purchased new bandages, and taken a picture of my chin for you. Enjoy and don't be jealous that I now have a hot new accessory;)



Lucky for me, I am one of those weirdos who like scars...each has a story to tell and I think they are sexy:) Of course, mine will be on the bottom of my chin so you won't be able to see it unless I life my chin, but I will show it off nonetheless:) Thanks to my friend Heather for hanging out with me all day and watching the kiddos *and kudos to them for being so amazingly well behaved!* I was sooo proud of them, especially when the nurses stopped to comment on how well behaved they were after being cooped up in a little room for so long!
