story time!

so you kids better all read this, because it took me forever to type one handed.

Yesterday morning, I was walking to my archaeology class in the snow, and, being the ridiculously clumsy person I am, I of course slipped and fell on my butt. I pretty much just hard core biffed it right in front of like, 50 people walking to class too. Some guy next to me freaked out and tried to come over to help me up, but practically fell over himself. I was just like, "I'm fine, I'm fine" and stood up and kept going on my way, but really, reeeeeally slowl, cuz i thought it was a definite possibility that i would pass out right then and there. I ended up sitting through two classes before I realized that my arm felt really stiff and I couldn't bend it at all.

So i ended up going to the doctor and he told me it was either a ligament, tendon, or fracture, and sent me over to the hospital to get an x ray. Turns out that two of the bones that come together in my elbow are broken.

THEN I got to go to a clinic today to get casted, since theres a lot of fluid and whatnot building up in my joint. It goes from my palm to the middle of my upper arm, and it already itches like crazy. Ugh.

I did, however, name it Henry.

I think Henry is wonderous...the only thing better would be Henry with googly eyes, and you with purple fingernails...you know.
and those clinic people were ridiculous. and so were your doctor's people. worst ever
