What a great way to start the day. After spending over 2 hours yesterday at a Doc-In-A-Box with a doctor whose English was so heavily accented by her foreign dialect that I was fortunate enough to at least have lab results and prescriptions to tell me what was going on. After saying “Excuse me?” three times, I knew I wasn’t at the best of places but I had to get medication for the UTI.
I had to retrieve the big bag of cat litter from the back of the mom-mobile this morning. The rear door has weak hydraulic lifts on the liftgate, but they had been behaving them self for some time now so I didn’t think about them. I reached in, grabbed the bag and set it down on the floor. As I stood up, the door came down on my head. I grabbed my head and felt something wet and sticky. My right hand was covered in blood. I grabbed my head with my other hand and the same thing happened. I told myself, I just needed to get upstairs. I got some paper towels and put them on my head. Then I went to freezer and found one of the blue ice bags. I wanted to go lay down but I knew I needed to feed the cats or they would not leave me alone. Got them fed and went back to lay in bed for a few minutes. The alarm went of and Jeff asked me why I was in bed. I told him the car hit me, he was half asleep and didn’t quite understand what I said. Once he was more awake he asked if I needed him to look at my head. I figured he should even though I thought it was going to be okay. I figured since I didn’t pass out and the bleeding had stopped I was just going to have one heck of a headache. He tells me the reason the it seemed like the bleeding had stopped was because all the blood had matted in my hair. It hurt just to have him move my hair, I was afraid of what it was going to be like trying to take a shower. I opted to take my shower early so in case something did happen, he could hear me. I could smell the blood as I was trying to wet my hair and rinse it out. All I could think was thank goodness there were no sharks in the tub. Even in pain, I have a weird sense of humor.
Yes, my head is sore but I’m glad I didn’t have to go back to the Doc-In-A-Box or even worse, the Emergency Room. I think I would have opted for an at home remedy – super glue.
