It is the first time in my life to used the Crutches and I hope it would be the last. Why? It hurts a lot using that thing. Especially my armpits (I don't know if by using it for 2 weeks could build my muscle). Why again you have to use the crutches?
The story goes...on February 3rd 2011, at 2.15 a.m I met with a FREAK ACCIDENT!!! What's a FREAK ACCIDENT? It is an accident that cannot possibly happened when you think about it. So what really happen?
That early Thursday morning, around 1 a.m my office mate and I went out for lunch (Yes. I called it lunch at 1 a.m because it's my lunch break..I worked shift..US hours 9 p.m to 6 a.m). So we talked and chat until about 2.10 a.m when we decided to go back to the office. Yes the office is near to where we had our lunches.
Reached the office parking lot and my office mate friend thought he left his mobile at the parking lot. So the office mate stop the car in the position so that we can searched for the mobile easily. So the car stopped, the co-pilot went out, my office to my right sitting at the back went out and I am sitting at the back on the left side with my left feet out. Then suddenly the driver, shout he found the mobile inside the car and pull into D on the gear.
The car moved and left back tayar slide perfectly onto my back heel. Yes onto my left foot heel. Strange right?Totally!!! I shouted to the driver I'm not out yet. He immediately stopped the car (the tayar already passed on my foot and I felt a tingling sensation shot up to my brain). I went down from the car and started walking towards the office building. After about 5 to 7 steps I felt an excruciating pain at my left foot and can barely walked.
Then I went up to the office slightly hopping, the office mate that accidentally ran my foot over advice to take me straight to the hospital. But I said it's OK! I thought it would be fined. Reached level 9, I was wrong. My supervisor was laughing and thought I was making a joke. They were wrong. I pull out my left shoe and my foot got swollen and red. My nails started turning to blue (it turned almost blue black once I reached the hospital).
Straight away she ask one of my colleague to find a wheel chair downstairs but instead we used the office chair to send me downstairs. My office mate friends that lost the mobile already waiting downstairs to take me to the hospital. Nearest is at Tropicana Medical Center in Kota Damansara. Reached the hospital, the nurse brought me a wheel chair and pushed me inside the Emergency room. (Glad that this hospital accepted the GE medical card).
So the nurse took my BP, at first it shot up to 168/94. Then she asked me to calmed down and it goes normal. The doctor came in and sends me to the x-ray. She doubted that I have a broken bone or something and turns out she was right. So she concluded that maybe I have a torn tissue or muscle. Advice me that if it is hurt still, come back on Monday to check with the specialist (and as of today..I don't want to go). After all that, the nurse gave me a pain killer, ointment and the crutches.
I think that's enough info for today...Hope my heel will heal real soon...Hmm...it rhymes...Hahaha...
So take care of your feet people..better yet..take care of yourselves..Be safe!!!!!
