It happened last Friday. My buddy had his going away to Japan for 6 months party. After being at the pub we decided to bring the festivities back to other buddy's penthouse suite. In the Lobby there was a large window which was broken.
Now instead of taking the time to buzz in the # and get them to open the door for us, we decided upon going through the large broken window as it was quicker. I was the last to go through. Just my luck as I go through the window, a large shard of glass decides to fall off of the top of what was left of the window, and lands into my right foot.
I saw the glass come down, felt a sharp pain, and then I looked down. The shard went through my shoe, into my foot. It hit the area in between my right bigtoe and the toe next to the big toe which name eludes me at the moment. I pulled the shard out and I could immediately feel my shoe fill up with blood.
We got up to the suite, and I got my shoe off to examine the wound. It wasn't a huge cut but it was deep enough to do some damage. I ran cold water under my foot in the tub and kept it elevated hoping it would stop bleeding. We came to the conclusion that it was going to need stitches.
I was bleeding for a good 15 minutes until we could find somebody sober to drive me to the ER. I Guesstimate that I lost at least half a litre of precious blood. Nothing like a good bleeding to lighten your life up.
Me and my bestfriend got dropped off at the ER. They admitted me right away as I was bleedin and thankfully it wasn't busy. I had only a couple beers that night, but my friend was completely shitfaced, and the initial conversation with the ER doctor was quite funny so say the least.
After I got all stitched up and cabbed home I was hopping on one foot into the kitchen when I noticed blood on the floor. I had to go back, this time waiting another 3hrs for the ER doctor to tell me that everything looks ok, and if it starts bleeding again to return.
It hurt real bad the first few days. Now it is more managable. Hopefully by next week I'll be able to walk and work again. It sucks, but it could've been worse. I'm just thankful the glass didn't decide to hit a major artery in my neck instead of my foot. Now that woulda sucked.
