Well, I crushed three toes on my right foot today at work, one looks like jello. Hurts like a MOTHER!!![down][sad]

Then I got stung in the face on my way home. I was riding my motorcycle and had the helmet visor open, when a wasp hit me right in the cheek, and stung (or bit) me. I thought he was gone, so I closed the lid, only to see the wasp walking across my cheek pad onto the visor a little ways down the road. Going about 60mph, I didnt want to open the visor and blow him back in my face, so I had to calmly pull off, and let him out....

Geez, all I can think is, I should probably stay away from sharp objects the rest of the day, and maybe I should leave my helmet on. [confused]

Poor Matty! Ice it, elevate it and tape it together with the toe that isn't broken. If the swelling continues and the whole nail is blue you may need to heat a paperclip and burn a hole in it to releave the pressure.
Need anymore Medical Assistant / Nurse advice give me a call.
Good luck and sorry, I know that hurts like hell!:eek:

Mystic, Ive hunted with a broken leg, a broken ankle, a badly sprained ankle, and I tried to learn how to shoot my bow with a broken arm about 7 years ago, but I couldnt do that.(not all of these injuries occurred at the same time)

Ive had to hobble into the woods on camo crutches more than a few times. It takes a lot to keep me out of the woods.[up] So you can bet your longbow I'll be out there.;)

My one toe is bad, but Im just glad its still there. Another one is probably broken, and the other one might be just bruised. Forgot to mention I mildly sprained my ankle about a week ago too, so Im a mess going into this hunting season. Nothing major though, it just always seems this stuff happens all at once.

I shouldnt complain though. Theres a guy in the Academy with my brother right now that finishes the runs with a pulled hamstring, today he pulled his other hamstring, so that guys worse off than me. That guy is a real hard-charging mofo man....I dont know if Id be back on Monday to run with the group....He said he will though, and thats rough.[up]

I have never missed a opening day in 24 years, Even when I was in the army. I was even out 6 months after I had Heart Surgery. Good Luck on opening day, I hope you get well soon.

Thanks DSwidow...its good to have a motherly figure on here to take care of us knuckleheads.:) I dont go to doctors, so now I can just come on here and ask you when I need medical advice. (the only time I go to a doctor, is if I cant tape or sew it back on myself):D


Thanks MG, good to see your a hard charger too![up]

Good luck to everyone this season!:)[up]

Maybe our team name should be the Bad Luck Bowhunters...and you can be out mascot. :p

Sorry Matty, you're going to have to tuff it out and take one for the team here, I expect you'll be off work for about 6 weeks with those injuries so you can go hunting every day. We don't have an injured reserve, so you gotta play hurt. We all expect big things from you. ;)
