I was slicing lemons at Ruby River last week...and the knife slipped! I sliced the tip of my finger off. Yuck! My manager and I did some first aid...and got it to stop bleeding :) I had to play in a volleyball tournament that night...and I knew it would KILL if it got hit with the ball...so I went to the doctor and had them numb it up. :) They put a shot right into the wound so it would stay numb for about 7 hours. It hurt for 5 seconds...but then was numb for 7 hours. So nice! :) They gave me a pre-filled syringe for the next day of the tournament. The numbness was starting to wear off, so I gave the syringe to Curtis to poke me. He was so nervous that when he stuck the needle in...he didn't push any of the medicine in. I think he was scared of hurting me. I know I'm going to be a nurse soon...but I still couldn't give myself the shot. I had another volleyball tournament this last Saturday...and we have a doctor who lives a few houses down...so he came over in the morning and gave me another shot. :) We ended up taking 1st in both volleyball tournaments...so it was worth it! :)
...pic taken with my phone... I had to clip off the skin that was hanging...
Here's a pic of the syringe...and coban wrap :)
All ready to play! :)
