I so knew the day was coming when I would hurt myself during a karate training enough to end up in a hospital. And yes, the day's already here.
Yesterday during training I made a step against a guy, who made a step, too, and his leg caught my little toe and pushed it outward. It hurt somewhat, but not enough to not continue right away... that is, until I looked down and saw blood gushing out from where the toe was torn a bit. My friends helped me clean the blood from the tatami and from my hands (because I held my foot) and fixated the toe with a band-aid. The guys even carried me down the stairs to the changing room like a princess, which was kinda fun
Because the toe looked a little weird, sensei and his brother drove me to a hospital. Funnily enough they went there just the day before, when sensei punched his brother to the face, as he failed to block...
After four hours of waiting, when my foot stopped hurting completely (it didn't hurt much to begin with so I didn't expect anything big), the doctor said the toe was not only torn, but dislocated and broken, too :/
I never had anything broken or dislocated before and I had certainly expected it would hurt much more.
The doctor then gave me four stitches, re-positioned the toe and drilled in a wire to fixate it on top of that. Now my foot is bandaged, I have to take antibiotics and can't walk without crutches. They will only take the wire out after a month. Which is pretty bad for me as I need to drive and go to the field again. Dang, I'm screwed. Why does such a small toe give me such trouble?!
The only good thing about it is that I can at least draw...
