Bathroom is skinned!!!! So is knee, head, shins, etc.

Saturday, November 10, 2012 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Life, the Universe and Everything

Hey guys. If you felt the earth move, it was me.

 

I fell while remodeling my bathroom, and hit my head on the pedestal of the sink.

 

Gave me a real sinking feeling...hehe.

 

Doc had some fun with the pics on Facebook.

Luckily, I have a hard head. Slight concussion. Major headache. CT scan said there was nothing in there.

Sorry. Thought you were going to tell us something we didn't know.

Seriously, glad you are  doing OK.

Jim... seriously: By the looks of it, that needs suturing or stapling. You might also need tetanus toxoid. Please don't ignore it, as you have a risk factor for infection. Also, a triangular wound won't heal properly without attention.

ER Dr. said textbook would call for some "clips" and that his nurses would say the same, but he said that he would promise me that if Lisa keeps it clean with the betadine, and keeps 4x4s on it, it'll heal better without the clips.

 

He said closing it with clips would increase risk of infection. Got a tetanus shot, and a shot of Rocephin in my hip.

 

Tramadol and Augmentin prescriptions.

 

 

I did go to the ER...I'm a hillbilly, but not a stupid one...hehe..

 

Like Wiz's favorite cartoon quote...."You can't fool me 'cause I'm a moron."

Yes... opisthotonus can be a pain in the neck.

Looks like a nasty and painful gash. So sorry you got injured but happy to hear it was not more serious. Those home falls can be disastrous. Proud you went and had it looked at proper! Take care of yourself!

I'm sorry....I guess that's gross and I should stop posting these.

 

Feeling much better already, this is a freshly cleaned shot, about to get dressed.
