I had a bit of an oopsie yesterday.
As I was rushing my kids out of the front door, the screen door swung back and hit me on the back of the heel. As it has done numerous times before. This time however, a bit of the metal sliced straight through my heel.
I have a vertical gash that runs the entire height of my heel. Naturally I went straight to the doctor, and although he wanted to stitch it, we ended up deciding against that, as I felt it ran a high risk of infection. Instead, we opted to wash it out (agony), close it with secure strips, place a plaster over the top of that, and strap it.
So. Much. Pain! I am to keep it clean and dry and go back every two days for a dressing change. Hopefully I manage to avoid infection.
