Karma Bit Me Right in The...

As.. you may have read, we went to our cabin last weekend in the Gulf Islands.

We went with family, and the guys took the kids fishing for the first time.
He used branches and string.
It was cute.

My sister in law and I also gave it a try..and we caught a fish!
A pretty big fish.
We were what can only be called 'stupid and girly' when this happened.
But it was exciting and it's the first fish I'd ever caught.

I tried to grab the fish with my hands, and got 'hooked' myself.
By that I mean, the fish hook went right through my thumb nail.

Did I mention that for 20 years, I was a vegetarian?  
No, well now you know.
Did I mention that the fish hook had actually broke off, and was in my thumb..for a whole week.
Unbeknownst to me.
Till yesterday morning at 5am when I went to the emergency.

The doctor mocked me - calling it a big boo boo.  
He apologized when the x-ray came in and he found himself cutting open my thumb to remove the hook.
Yesterday sucked for me.
Karma had bitten me right in the thumb.  
And man it hurt.

I don't know about karma. I'd say that fish nearly jumped on your hook. Hope your thumbkin is better. It must have been throbbing.

Ooooooh - that sounds PAINFUL!
Naughty Doctor - doesn't he know That when Mothers cry out in pain - we are never being big boohoos. Lord knows we KNOW what real pain feels like! (Naturally I remind my husband of this, whenever he has a 'sore throat' - lol!) Hope you feel better soon.

I just can't visualize how that even happened, nor how painful that would have been. The "Mocking doctor", I can picture him just fine.

Your poor thing...

The colors on fish are beautiful and so is this post! Hope you're okay.

My husband cut his finger while on holiday. After a four hour visit in the ER... he needed surgery. He severed the nerve and may never get the feeling back!
