Mindy and I have drastically different senses of humor. I think mean things are funny and I am extremely sarcastic. While she is just completely absurd and ridiculous.
She has these 2 shirts that make me laugh every single time she wears them. The shirts are just silly, but it's the memory of when she wore these specific shirts that makes me laugh still.
This past June, Mindy had the end of her middle finger bitten off by a dog. Our dog and another dog got into a fight. When Mindy was trying to pull our dog away, she turned around and snapped at Mindy. It was chaos. Mindy yells "They bit my fucking finger off." She goes down the hallway yelling about how we needed to go to the hospital immediately, gets a towel wrapped around her hand, and sits in the car.
Meanwhile, I have no idea what exactly has happened and I am putting the dogs away as quick as I can. I don't notice the blood everywhere.
We get to the hospital and Mindy is clearly in a lot of pain. It was horrible. They have to do an X-ray before they can give her any medication. An orderly wheels her down to the x-ray room with me following close behind. The orderly asks how Mindy got her finger bitten off. Keep in mind that she is rocking back and forth, obviously in massive amounts of pain. Mindy responds with " I was trying to get a bite of her pancakes." I could not believe she was cracking jokes in that kind of pain.
After the X-Ray, they take her back to a room and the doctor comes in to analyze the situation. Mindy refuses to look at her finger. I still have no idea how much she lost. I was not prepared for this.
Yes. That is the bone sticking out at the end. They had to give her 3 shots, 1 in the wound, 1 in the lower part of the finger and 1 in her palm. Once the medication kicked in she had me take this picture and told me to immediately put it on facebook and not tell anyone what happened. Have I mentioned that Mindy is a bad ass?
I get Kayla to come and sit with Mindy at the ER so I can go home and clean up the mess. Apparently blood had just been squirting out of the end of her finger. I am not easily disgusted so I get some bleach and start scrubbing. Horror movies did not prepare me. While cleaning the living room, I found the end of her finger. I immediately vomited. Then, I put it in a baggie and set it in the freezer. (Mindy told me if I found it to put it in the freezer)
Mindy ended up having to have surgery to shave down the bone and close the wound. To her doctors visits, she wore a shirt that says "I'm Not a Weenie." and this shirt.
She was a hit at the hand surgeon's office.
