dummy:

i tripped over a jagged piece of sidewalk on my run this morning, scraping up my right elbow (see photo below), banging up my left knee, and bruising my right hip bone and left thumb (right on the pad; a weird spot for a big purple bruise) during the fall. i felt like a huge dummy, but more than that, i was in a lot of pain. i blubbered all the way home, and sobbed as i tried to take my clothes off to get in the shower, and cried some more when i found a first aid kit with my cleaning supplies but couldn't bend my elbow to tape the gauze in the right place, and kept whimpering in bed until bradley came over an hour later and told me to stop being a baby.i'm feeling better now, but anticipating a bloody bandage and sore limbs for a few days, and hopefully some sweet bruises and scars later.

she makes it sound like me telling her to get up and stop being a baby was a bad thing, but it's what she needed.

that one on your elbow IS pretty nasty.

that sounds terrible. i hope that your wounds heal quickly, and that you are back to running asap!

get well soon, dear whitney.

that's awful, yet i find myself chuckling when thinking about you crying all that time. i feel like i can exactly imagine how you were...

falling while running is the worst.

Joe would be so proud of that frown. Sorry to hear you hurt yourself--skin grating across rough surfaces is the worst.
