Seriously That Hurt



I was doing laundry today and our laundry room isn't that big. I put the laundry Basket on top of the dog cage in the doorway. I'm trying to shimmy through the doorway to throw the lint away and my hip got caught on the door jam (hinge, whatever) 
It was HORRIBLE. I bBENT the door jam. I was like "Oh that hurt" and then threw away the lint and that's when I realized how bad it was. I couldn't move, I was hunched over leaning on our dining room chair and grabbing it saying "ow, ow, ow" I started to feel dizzy so I went back to our bathroom where Jon was taking a shower. By the time I got there My vision was pretty much gone. I walked in and said "honey" it was so quiet I'm surprised he heard me. He peeked his head out and realized I was leaning on the tub and when he spoke I realized my ears were ringing and I was losing my hearing as well. I needed to sit down. I tried to sit on the toilet, but instead walked to the bed. Pulled myself up on it and Jon went and got me an ice pack and an etodolac (anti inflammatory)

At that point my vision and hearing had came back. I was in shock! I was crying and couldn't move my leg. It was worse than LABOR! YES worse than labor. It still isn't bad, I have a cut on my hip. But I have internal bruising and I MAY have fractured my hip. I thought I broke it! Jon continued his shower and I had to go to the bathroom so I SLOWLY sat up and got up and I could walk (thank goodness) I was limping, but it wasn't that bad. I sat down and went to the bathroom and I felt fine! A little while later I showered and got ready for the day. Honestly Jon bent the jam back and It took a LOT of force. He's surprised I didn't break my hip as well. He said it took a LOT of pressure to bend it back!
 Here's my Hip
And here's the Hinge from a few different angles
It hit my hip and then I took another step and it went under my hip bone and bent! That's how bad it was!!

Now I have neosporin and gauze on it. It hurts!! I'm limping!
However, that didn't stop me from going to CVS today!!!

So how was your weekend?
