How Did Your Sunday Go?....

Firstly, can you believe it is already FEBRUARY!?!? I seriously can't believe it!!

How did your Sunday go?

Mine ended up rushing myself to the Emergency section of the Hospital here!! My all time WORST fear since arriving here in May 2010 came true - having something bad happen and not knowing what to do or where to go, and worst of all, doing it by myself!! The medical system here makes me nervous and it intimidates me for some reason, LOL....

Want to hear the story? It's funny NOW, it wasn't at the time!!

I decided to make myself some guacamole for some guacamole and chips (no, not for the Super Bowl game!! LOL) to enjoy, only because I love guacamole and the mix I found in the store the other day.... I had already put one Avo out into the bowl, I was now on my second Avo, done one side and was trying to take the pip out of the other (I had done this for YEARS with Avos), this one was a bit tough to take out, and the knife slipped, went through the flesh of the Avo through the back and sliced the inside of my left index finger. I'm going to spare all the next gory details. But basically I ended up having to rush myself to the emergency room (luckily it wasn't too far). *Just have to put, thank you to my friends / neighbours for the thoughts, even though you couldn't help - everyone gets busy and it is understood* :) you guys are still special to me!! :D

2.5 hours later after rushing there, giving information and waiting to be attended to, then getting my finger cleaned and 3 stitches in, I was getting my pain meds and off home, with a very numb finger. I must say, the numbing injection, has got to be the WORST pain / feeling I have EVER felt. It stings, it's uncomfortable and literally swelled up my finger :( - not the best feeling in the world. BUT it was the best feeling in the world once it was done and my finger was numb and there was no longer any pain.

All my life, I heard / saw so many people I knew break bones, fall and need stitches, but never me. UNTILLLL today!! Haha.... Well I now have had my experience with stitches and I will say, I never want to go through that again!! NEVER!! Not a great start to February, but lets hope this isn't a start to a bad medical history for me!! Lol

Other than that it has been an okay day. I also received an amazingly delicious pasta dish from an awesome neighbour, which made it so much easier for me....

Sort of better :) 
(I'll spare the other pics for you :P)
