Ouch...

Just what I needed to go along with my achy back, was to step on a big hunk of broken glass in my backyard, only to have it plunge deep into my heel.

This was my Thursday night adventure while showing my father-in-law the newly cleared back garden, and explaining when the fence was going in. I was barefoot, and stepping out of the garden to keep my son from coming in and wham... pain in the heel.

Bled so much the shower looked like someone had died in there.. Who knew there was so much blood in ones heel??

Nonetheless, after some polysoprin and bandaids, I spent today trying to figure out what hurt more, my back and left leg, or right heel. I'm really not this injury-prone. Well, yes I am. I play hard. I just have a very high pain threshold. Fortunately, the swelling is coming down and I suspect only a few days of limping before going back to, well limping. :)\
