Flashback Friday: Stay away from rusty nails!
Angie and Liz will definitely remember this exciting morning at the county fair (2007). Easton and I were going to meet up with Angie, Liz & kids. We parked at the opposite entrace so started to head toward all the action. I was just innocently walking along and all the sudden I hear this little noise followed by a pain in my foot. Come to find out, the little noise was the sound of a big old rusty nail punching through my crocs and into my foot!!! There was no one around for help so I had to do my best to make it on one leg, pushing a stroller to find help. Luckily it wasn't long before a couple of ladies passed me and they were able to go get the paramedic that was on duty at the fair. Long story short, I took about 10 minutes to decide to let him pull the nail out, which horrified me because it was in there good (about 1/2 inch right between 2 bones toward the outside of my foot). I then had to drive myself to the Urgent Care (Angie & Liz kept Easton) to have it cleaned out and get a tetanus shot. That was loads of fun (can you hear the sarcasm?) and do not recommend it.
