Ok so after the horror of almost no sleep I was feeling groggy anyway so not totally with it when my dog was frantically pacing at the door to go out. So I open the door and somehow trip over her and BANG!!! Bridge of my nose meets the hard end of the doorknob! It hurt real bad and started bleeding so I went and got some tissues to clean it up....but it doesnt stop...10mins later still going...30mins later still going and get worried....45mins, ok time to ring a friend for a ride to the hospital coz I'm not forking out $1000 for an ambulance ride!
Grab a towel, get into my friends car and go. It's about 15mins to the hospital and by the time I get there the towel is pretty much soaked with blood so they rush me in for a ct scan and find thankfully nothing is ruptured in my brain! So they get this long hose thing, about the circumfrance of a straw and shove it up my nose. It doesn't bother me because I've had it before due to ENT problems. Just near the bridge of my nose they find the problem, a chip of bone has pierced a vein in my nose. So they give me a local anithsetic, remove the piece of bone and shove powder up my nose to take care of the small hole thats causing all the blood.
So after afew more exams to make sure all my coordination is fine they discharged me. So here I am, home, resting in bed and waiting to catch up with everyone
