Friday night, Isla tripped over my sneaker in my bathroom while getting ready for bed. She was already overtired and emotional, so I thought she was just being dramatic. Next morning, she comes into my room and says her toe REALLY hurts and I could see it was super swollen. I was concerned it might be broken but I know they usually can’t do anything for a broken toe, so, I said we’d just keep it elevated and iced and see how it goes. It was getting more swollen and bruised over the next day and my big concern was that it could be dislocated or the bone might have shifted or turned in some way and would need to be set, so I took her to the ER after church (she sat in the nursery w/ pillows and an ice pack during church). Sure enough, it’s broken and all they could do was put a buddy bandage on and tell me to keep doing the ice, elevation and Tylenol/Ibuprofen. 🤷🏻♀️ At least I know now and it really wasn’t a long ER visit compared to most I’ve experienced. #kids#accidentprone#brokenbones#danggirl#ouch#lalabean#poorpiggy
I was feeling so freaking amazing after last Thursday night's personal development session, got back into my audio books on the drive to Toogoolawah on Friday morning to help out my sister with food prep for a huge family celebration on Saturday. And of course I sliced the tip clean off my finger 😐 There was heaps to do so I wrapped it up tight thinking it wasn't too bad, but two days later and I'm thinking it'll be a trip to the dr tomorrow 😭
I swear the universe is dead set against me making any progress on this journey, and I've spent the afternoon in a really bad space (read lots of tears, ugly crying and yelling). But tonight I'm giving myself a big thumbs up (literally) and a pep talk to convince myself that I can make it over the line. This will not defeat me. I'm half way thru the #term2betteryou program with @alfhealth and I ain't quitting now! #stronger#alfhealth#determined#atleastitsmylefthand#frustrated#cantdoanything#accidentprone#somadatmyself#theniforgavemyself#welltryingto

France • Monaco • Italy • Vatican City • Austria • Liechtenstein • Switzerland • Germany • Netherlands • 10 photos aren’t enough to show off the jam packed 20 days of contiki, the amount of injuries/sickness I had or the amazing people I met. Thank you to all the contiki fam for the memories which are a bit foggy from the alcohol and concussions! #contiki#contikihendo#contikiyogi#accidentprone#travel
Did you know that the crushed leaves of the Moringa tree can be used to stop bleeding and speed up wound healing?
Well, I didn't until I scraped a piece of my flesh off my little toe while cycling to see the sunset.
So we stopped by PHLS car rental to tend to the wound and asked some workers leaving the place for a plaster, and one very kind and knowledgeable guy pointed us to a plant just outside of the place (note the white spots in that super blurry picture, that's the toe-saving plant) and told us to put it on the wound to stop the bleeding.
AND IT WORKED! It worked so well that the wound clotted by the time I was back at the homestay 😊😊 also it stayed all well and good (read: no pain) through 3 dives (with plaster and bandage of course). I'm very much impressed and am inclined to have a moringa as a house plant 🥰
At least she knows it 😂 if anyone needs it, its definatly Mackenzie lol she is just that child who is accident prone 🤦♀️ Were you that child? Who always managed to injure yourself without even really trying? Or do you have a child who without fail injure themselves? #seeyounexttrip#seeyounextfall#accidentprone
My child is officially accident prone. 😭🤦🏼♀️ this little puffy, bird lip is from trying to get off a low-ride tricycle and catching his foot...thus resulting in him landing on his mouth on our concrete porch 😢 #birdlip#puffy#accidentprone#boymom

Strike one: biggest splinter in my arm ever. Had to cut away the first layer of skin to get it out. Strike two: cut off a humongous chunk of skin off my thumb while slicing potatoes. Left arm/hand, it’s not your day..... #whoops#accidentprone
Dylan kicked off his half term a little early and in style with a clean break of both the radius and ulna 🤦♀️ He's been an absolute star about it and is in high spirits :) #bloodykids#accidentprone#mrbump#inthewars
Like many women, Joan ( of the St Joans ambulance ) feels alot of pressure to remain perennially young and hot whilst carrying out her emergency medical interventions ... especially at festivals, where 'St Joans' may come across their flamboyant ( some might say 'cheap' and 'showy' ), increasingly young and glamorous counterparts in the 'St Johns' ambulance -who have recently saved up for new cutting edge green shirts and pretend walky-talkies.
Sadly theres also considerable stigma surrounding amateur medics having surgery for cosmetic purposes.
Anyway, Joan INSISTS she hasn't had any work done ..these stunning results being achieved when she slipped and fell into a vat of e45 cream. She recommends giving someone 'a good kicking 'to eliviate stress .
