Thanks, catlvr. I think she will be more careful in the future!

Oh my goodness Janis! I just read about your daughter - poor, poor dear. I hope she has a speedy recovery, even sitting must be painful.

Thanks, Claire. She is extremely sore, she says it hurts no matter what she does. She's also on massive amounts of antibiotics, and they make her sick to her stomach. Sigh. Such is my crazy life!!

Poor kid. I hope she heals well and quickly. We try to get them to not do the teenage flop but they will anyhow. My DD has asked me how she lived long enough to make me Gramma. She may be lucky they weren't smaller needles that would have been sharper and penetrated deeper, more easily. Will she get to be on a TV show? You know, those weird visits to the hospital and stuff.

We thought the same thing about the smaller needles, GG. I was joking about trying to get in touch with some of those shows, she didn't see the humor in it at all. I'd still like to try though. Not sure if it is gory enough or serious enough, though. It is definitely strange enough, though. The ER staff said it was the strangest thing they had ever seen.

My GD was doing something once, tipping back in a chair she was sitting in maybe, and wouldn't stop when I told her to. I finally asked her, would you like to have to go to the ER with that up your butt? She quit. I thought it was a joke, maybe not so much. Kids. We love 'em anyhow.

My 22 year old has been in the trauma room at the local ER 4 times now I think? Possibly just 3. Once for a bicycle wreck (they thought he had lacerated his liver, he hadn't), once for trying to cut off his finger, once when he rolled his truck, and after a motorcycle accident. 4 times. I keep telling him he isn't a cat, he doesn't have 9 lives!!

Give your daughter hugs for me. That had to really hurt!!!

This reminds me of when my daughter was in college she was running from the car to the house she was renting on campus I the rain and stepped on something that went all the way through her running shoe.
She tried taking her shoe off but it wouldn't come off and thought she'd stepped on a nail. Had a friend take her to the ER.. When they looked at the bottom of the shoe they couldn't see anything, but also couldn't get the shoe off. Took an Xray that showed a piece of something stuck in her foot. They finally removed it and it was a stick that had gone between the ridges in her shoe and into her foot.
She also was on antibiotics for awhile.
No one in the ER had ever seen that before either.
Kids, gotta love em.

Good lord, that'll make you wince! My eyes are watering just thinking about it, poor love. Makes you wonder how we all got through our teenage years, and I bet the needles will get a bit more respect now!
