A ball took a funny hop tonight on its way to me at first base and BAM, it hit me right in the nose. So we headed to the ER because I was bleeding like it had shanked an artery, and from the sound of it hitting my face I was convinced that my nose was broken. I left a ton of blood in the dugout, which will be a nice reminder for the next few weeks when we come back. Oh, by the way, we won the game- our first win.
After two stitches and some superglue I was out of there! The bridge of my nose is swollen, but I think it actually looks like an improvement.
We snapped a few pictures while we were there. Thank God for Lidocaine!
