Hey guys. If you felt the earth move, it was me.

 

I fell while remodeling my bathroom, and hit my head on the pedestal of the sink.

 

Gave me a real sinking feeling...hehe.

 

Doc had some fun with the pics on Facebook.

Luckily, I have a hard head. Slight concussion. Major headache. CT scan said there was nothing in there.

Jim... seriously: By the looks of it, that needs suturing or stapling. You might also need tetanus toxoid. Please don't ignore it, as you have a risk factor for infection. Also, a triangular wound won't heal properly without attention.

ER Dr. said textbook would call for some "clips" and that his nurses would say the same, but he said that he would promise me that if Lisa keeps it clean with the betadine, and keeps 4x4s on it, it'll heal better without the clips.

 

He said closing it with clips would increase risk of infection. Got a tetanus shot, and a shot of Rocephin in my hip.

 

Tramadol and Augmentin prescriptions.

 

 

I did go to the ER...I'm a hillbilly, but not a stupid one...hehe..

 

Like Wiz's favorite cartoon quote...."You can't fool me 'cause I'm a moron."

Yes... opisthotonus can be a pain in the neck.

Looks like a nasty and painful gash. So sorry you got injured but happy to hear it was not more serious. Those home falls can be disastrous. Proud you went and had it looked at proper! Take care of yourself!

I'm sorry....I guess that's gross and I should stop posting these.

 

Feeling much better already, this is a freshly cleaned shot, about to get dressed.

Glad you're ok Jim.

90% of accidents happen in the home.  Next time remodel your neighbor's bathroom.

Ok guys, this is what it's all about. When my wife and I bought this house, the bathroom was in bad repair. Sadly, 8 years later, even worse.

 

We had some black mold problems, and the shower walls were deteriorating.

 

I had even put up peel off floor tiles and plastic.

 

Now that Lisa has had her surgery, some of the insurance money went into out new bathroom. But I have to do all the work and I have no idea what I'm doing.

 

 

Here are some before pics, some during pics, and later, I'll post some after pics.  (Or aftershocks...lol)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is where I hurt my head. Tearing out sheetrock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'll be done soon. Not too bad for a dumb hillbilly with no experience.
