The ER and seven years of bad luck!

So yesterday on my way to the bathroom I got a little dizzy and fell over, almost. my fall was stopped by a full length mirror we have on our wall. I was ok, unfortunately the mirror wasn't. It broke into lots of little pieces. I cut my shoulder a little but nothing serious. Stephen cleaned it up and we wen on our way to the bathroom. While in the bathroom, I felt some glass in my cast, oh great. I was just going to leave it in there and hope it fell out.

Meanwhile, I had been having a lot of extra leg pain in my calf and shin in the last two days. I told this to my nurse case manager and she told me to go to the ER right away because it could possibly be a blood clot, I then told her rather sheepishly about the glass in my cast. She said that they should be able to take care of it at the ER as well.

Well, I'm happy to report that After a ultrasound of my leg and a CT scan of my heart, I don't have any blood clots but unfortunately the glass may or may not still be in my cast. Just another exciting day at the McCuen home. But, hey atleast I got to go outside.

Oh, and P.S. It took me another 1/2 an hour to get up our stairs:0)
