Nailed Down

January 13th, 2007 at 09:34 am

In pulling up damaged carpet from the hurricane, we found underneath damaged wood floors and pulled it up, also. We've been working on other things and just walking on the concrete at this time. Just at the edge of the kitchen flooring were a couple of hidden nails in the concrete. I was talking to DS on the computer yesterday and pulling off my shoes to take a shower. Then I caught the bottom of my foot on a nail. Tore a big place in my foot. I'm thinking that it has been eons since a tetanus shot, so I called the doctor and they worked me in. Great news is that I didn't need any stitches. Great news is that I had money to use in the budget. Unexpected things used to be an extra anxious problem for me. Now, I can run figures through my head and know that I can use money set aside. What a change! Hubby stopped by going home from work to see if I had to have stitches. He could drive me home from the doc since I didn't think a numb driving foot would be a good thing. DD came in to surprise us and we had borrowed a movie from Hubby's co-worker and watched it. Today, I am limping a bit, but fine. Grateful that the budget is in place. Grateful that it wasn't worse. Grateful that I could get help from the doctor on a Friday. I need to make a list of these types of shots and make sure I keep current. That would be frugal wouldn't it? At least I would be better prepared and that's something I am learning here, also.....

    You probably should have a tetnus shot anyway, since you are working on things. Glad to hear the budget is healthy. What a nice treat to have a visit from DD!

    At least tetanus isn't one of those wicked painful shots. I know the date of my last tetanus shot, August of 1999, because I had to get it when I was pregnant with T after tripping over a loose brick at in-laws house at the family reunion and slicing it open! Of course, no one could tell me if I could have a tetanus shot at that stage of pregnancy for nearly 72 hours and of course, you are supposed to do it within 72 hours to avoid the disease. You'd think the hospital would know that? And OB was out of town for the weekend. Not fun, but I'll never forget when it was because of it.
