After a fabulous "reverse surprise" party that Mary, Mary, & Adrienne threw for my mom at Mary B.'s house, I sadly had to make a dramatic entrance. Tina was tired and wanted to get up early, so we said our good byes as the birthday queen started to open presents. Tina was commenting at how dark the suburbs are and as I was getting ready to defend suburban living, I missed one of the concrete steps and tried to break my fall with my big right toe. Sadly, I still fell, and my toe took a beating. After using our cell phones to see what the damage was, I realized my black flip flops were now a shade a red, and suddenly, my Lincoln Park After Midnight nail polish was now looking more like blood red... My toe was gushing blood and throbbing like crazy. One of my mom's friends who was a nurse, took care of me, and told me to go to the ER, just so that I didn't get an infection. So Tina drove me home, and Mike and I headed over to North Shore hospital. After looking for McDreamy and McSteamy and sadly being disappointed, they irrigated and cleaned off my toe, took an x-ray, and glued the nail and open skin shut. I also needed a tetnus shot, just in case. Me and my sprained toe are still in pain but are ready for bed after this event! Needless to say, I'm going to take it easy this weekend, and maybe Mike will paint my toes... One can hope!
