If it hadnt happened here...
I would have never believed it. My 14 yr old sat on her size 11 needles earlier tonight, and impaled herself through the buttock into her hip. No serious damage, thank goodness. We just got home from the ER a bit ago. There was 3 1/2 inches of needle in her butt cheek. Don't sit on your needles lol. I can laugh now. I told her she was going to be the "butt" of bad jokes for years.

OUCH! Poor girl. You say there's no serious damage at least. That's good. Speedy recovery to her!

Once it was out (the worst part I think), she was much better. Everyone on duty in the ER that could find an excuse to come in to see it did, though. Then it was more wounded pride than anything. They did a CT scan just to make sure it wasn't worse than it looked.

Jan, she's bruised and sore but she's fine. She'll be sitting gingerly for a few days though! She has a bad habit of just throwing herself down on the couch without looking, and I'm sure that's what she did this evening. I'm sure she'll be putting her needles on the table instead of leaving them on the couch too!

Ah yes, the throwing yourself onto furniture trick. Glad that she's ok. I never would have believed it possible.

SIZE 11? To be impelled is bad enough when the item is thin, but size 11 needles? OUCH! poor child. Hug her for me. Thank goodness it was the fleshy buttocks and not part of the more serious stuff. That could have been a very serious injury for sure.

I wouldn't have either, salmonmac, if I hadn't seen it myself. She's very sore this morning, but that's to be expected.

Lighting57, I'll be sure to hug her for you. She was extremely lucky, it could have been so much worse. They did the CT scan to make sure it hadn't punctured her abdominal cavity. She'll be more careful from now on, I hope.

Glad she's OK. I ALWAYS put my knitting on the dining room table because I can see myself doing the same thing! Tell her we're thinking about her.
