  1. Well stupid question, of course we have but i wanted the title to be straight to the point, and it seems to be a week of human injuries here!!

    Well, Ive fallen 3 storeys off a balcony and busted my back and have a zip (cut) on my right thigh which required 14 stitches.
    I broke my ankle figure skating.
    I broke my left hand punching a reinforced window after catching my then boyfriend smooching someone else.
    I got stitches on my head when I was a toddler when I fell through a window and into a rosebush.

    1) When I was 1 our great dane ran past me and his dew claw hit my leg and gashed it open. I had to get stitches.

    2) When I was four my mom shut my finger in a gate hinge and it pinched my finger off(literally). I was so little they just sewed it back on.

    3) When I was 10 my horse threw me and I broke my collar bone.

    4) When I was 11 I hit my toe on my grandmas bike and broke it.

    5) When I was 13 my dad accidently cracked my sternum.(spelling)

    6) This isn't an injury, it's just REALLY gross. When I was about 2 I went inside and had blood running down my face. My dad asked did I bust my lip and I said no, all I did was eat a grape off the floor. Well, we didn't have grapes, I ate one of those GIANT "bubble" ticks. :eek:

    March 2007, I had let my Pom out to pee and was being nosy watching the neighbors, Precious came up the steps and wrapped her leash around my ankles and when I tried to step out of it I fell down my front steps ( I have 7 from top to bottom, we live on a hill ) And broke the radius bone at the elbow and at the wrist. I was in a cast for 3 months and a soft cast for 2 months with 12 weeks of physical therapy to boot, I still can not extend my arm out all the way and don't think I'll ever be able to.

    I hurt myself daily but have never had a stitch. I had never had an IV until
    this summer when I developed an infection from a bad case of poison ivy.

    I'll practically cut off a finger and wrap it with electrical tape. Electrical tape
    is the ultimate bandaid. Duct tape is good but sticks too well.

    My worst injury wasn't mine it was Drumstick's. He was climbing up into
    a backhoe to hang out with me and slambed his thumb in the door. He screamed
    A LOT but was very good. His thumb was broken in a few places and the nail
    was purple. He recovered but probably won't be climbing into a backhoe with
    me anytime soon.

    This could take a bit. As a kid I missed a turn and rode my bike thru a barbed wire fence and sliced my wrist open-about 20 stitches. The next year got attacked by a dog-guess he thought my boney leg was a chicken bone- a little over 800 stitches. 2 years later got knocked into a 55 gal. burn can and broke my nose + 14 more stitches. About a year later walking barefooted down a creek and stepped on a broken bottle someone had thrown off a bridge -- another 26 stitches. Years later got hit in the head with a pipe -- big dent now-- put in 4 stitches myself.
    Over the years in shcool, sports, fights when I was young and dumb, 2 head on collisions ( neither my fault ), and at work == 10 years in a mine == and now a farmer/big rig driver to chicken and turkey farms have broken 6 ribs, collar bone, 8 fingers, 4 toes -- 1 three different times -- , hand, wrist, ankle, kneecap and leg (in the military), 1 disc in back and torn rotator cuff a fewmonths ago.[​IMG] OK done.
    But the LORD still has me here and I wake up thankful and ready for the day, sometimes slower than others but still ready, each morning. Some times HE just has to thump some of us a little harder to finally REALLY wake us up.
    That's not complaning I am truly blessed and thankful for each day I am given. Hope you all have a blessed day.[​IMG]

    never broke any of MY bones. Woorst I've ever done, required stiches. Would rather wrap and let it heal on itsown I pass out at thought of going to the hospital. Cut top of toe with chainsaw, DW was not hoe, so I threw boot(ruined) and the socks away. wrapped in different sock and paper towels. I think I would rather bleed to death than go to hospital.
