aloha Friday #17

alohafriday

It’s Aloha Friday again!  Already?  Where does the time go??

But wait, don’t answer that because my real question is below. If you want to play along leave your reply in my comment section!  And don’t forget to visit An Island Life!

My question for you:

What is the worst injury you ever had?

Pretty sure my worst injury was when I fractured the acetabulum (bone in hip) of my left leg.  I believe it was June of 2000.  It was a freak accident during an indoor co-ed recreational soccer game.  I was in the hospital for about a week and on crutches for 6.  And it was NOT FUN! 

Hope I haven’t brought back too many painful memories!   :-)

Happy Friday!

My worst injury is also my only broken bone. When I was younger I broke my leg going down a giant slide. :(

I fell down my stairs when I was 8 months pregnant...I was so terrified the baby was hurt--I laid on the floor while my kids called Dad & the nurse next door--Thank god, the baby was fine! (i did break my tailbone though:(

I fell off a cliff (no really) in 1996 and miraculously only fractured my collar bone and had some other scrapes and bruises.

I woke up in the middle of the night, and on my way to the bathroom, got dizzy and fell flat on my face. Bit clean through my lower lip. 32 stitches inside and out. this was 2 days before I got my driver's license (yes, THAT was a lovely photo to carry around for years) and my junior prom.

Thanks for stopping by my blog - fellow "SITS"
hmmm - worst injury - not as severe as yours but last summer I severly sprained by big toe on my right foot - it turned such a dark purple it almost looked black (gross!) It was difficult to walk for almost 2 weeks

It's a toss up between a torn ligament in my right ankle playing indoor soccer against a team of boys or slicing my thumb open with a kitchen knife while cutting an apple.

The thumb got me 3 stitches and almost had to see a surgeon due to the depth of the cut. The ankle swelled and bruised and was ugly/painful for some time. Tried crutches but couldn't use them.

The thumb is scarred but the ankle still bothers me to this day and needs to be wrapped to play sports.

So I'd say ankle.

And it sounds like neither of us should be playing soccer anymore!

I tore my ACL and had reconstructive surgery. I was in bed for about a week and on crutches for 6 weeks. Had to go to physical thereapy for many weeks everyday! Horrible!!

Ok the list is long and I cant pick the worst one. First was three knee surgeries on my cartilage and ligaments when I was 15. You remember Teri. Can you believe it's been 20 years. I am counting the gall bladder crap because that is painful shit. I am also counting 2 c sections. And I would also like to count cancer. I feel like a 90 year old. Yuck!

Yucky! Hope you have a great weekend!

I haven't really had an injury but I've gotten really sick with viral meningitis.

Jolyn said...

I've only ever broken my right arm. When I was 10, and a rabid dog ran in front of me while I was riding my bike. I braked and flew. Whew!

Heatherlyn said...

When I was 3 1/2 my leg got caught in the spoke of my tricycle wheel that kept spinning around. I broke my left leg in 4 places. I still remember this to some degree. ouch! Happy Friday!

I had a compressed T12 vertebrae when I was 21 (compression fracture)

The Social Frog said...

Aside from breaking my wrist at a young age, it would be random thing I did to my back. I picked up a jug of milk from the fridge, I was horrible. I ended up in the ER with a morphine drip because the pain was so miserable. It hurts just thinking back,lol.

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

OMG that sounds horrible! The worst I think I've ever had is a separated shoulder from a bad car wreck.

Midwest Mommy said...

Ouch! That does sound painful.

Sweet Serendipity said...

Hmmm, I don't like to think about those...let's see. I slammed my ring finger in an old window and broke the tip and split it open. Hurt so bad I nearly passed out, and I don't consider myself a wuss. I had three kids naturally and one with back labor and not so much as a tylenol until well delivery. Still, I'm sure I have been very fortunate after reading some of the stories above.

Smellyann said...

Hmm, I don't know about injuries but I've had five abdominal surgeries that were pretty painful!

Tracey@Aloha Monkeys said...

At first, I was going to say when I fell off my bike at the age of 10 or 11 and chipped my front tooth. But I think the worst was on October, Friday the 13th of 2006. I hurt my back MAJOR while going down a slide at the pumpkin farm and ended up in the ER because I could barely move. It took over a week and good drugs to recover. I still tweak my back every now and then.

wife.mom.nurse said...

Wow! That's incredible. In the hospital for a week, that had to be terrible!!!!


Let's see...i had nose/sinus surgery and then a week later a dog bit me in the face, bashing my nose and grabbed my nose with his teeth and undid my straight septum!... a big yeouch in 2007

blueviolet said...

Ouch! This is when I'm afraid to say anything for fear of jinxing myself, ya know!

Overuse Syndrome in both my knees from the couch to 5k program. I failed obviously.

but, the placenta previa, even though not an injury, locked me away in the hossy for 20 days.
