lesson learned: never fight with a glass shower door.


the crime scene

just my luck....

getting out of the shower, the glass door shattered all over my body.
the biggest casualty was my right big toe.

turns out, the glass severed my tendon so i'm having
emergency surgery today. (thanks dr kimball!)

borderline devastated: no skiing (this season). no dancing (for 3 months).
no louboutins (for a while).

.poor me.

Sad :( Feel better and watch some Real Housewives of OC!!! Not nearly as good as ATL, but the Gretchen storyline is kinda interesting...

Diana Hulme said...

Wow - that's awful luck! :) I'm so sorry - hope you recover quickly.

It was fun seeing you for a quick bit last Friday.

Reggs said...

Oh my GOSH!! I am so sorry. The saddest part is no fancy shoes.

Shepherd Family ACAL said...

That is just crazy! Best of luck with surgery, and recovery!

Barb @ getupandplay said...

Poor you, indeed! Yikes! What a freak accident! I'm glad you escaped with as few injuries as you did! Here's to a speedy recovery!

Bethany said...

This is so bizarre - I had a friend experience this same thing! What in the world causes the shower door to spontaneously shatter?

Hope your recovery is lively and quick.

andrea said...

Good heavens.....is it not you month, or what?! Maybe you were safer to stay in SF for a while longer.

I hope all goes well, and maybe you should stick to baths for a while....with your toe sticking up out of the water, of course! :)

Krista said...

No way!! I'm so sorry! Was the door cracked? I am now very afraid of my shower door!

I guess one little blessing is that this didn't happen just before the final show of Grease. That would have been especially devastating.

Again, I feel so badly for you. Take care...

Brittany said...

I'm so sorry! I hope everything goes well!

Josh and Kandice said...

Oh no, you poor lady! I hope surgery goes well and you recover quickly to dance and wear your shoes!

Kara said...

i vote we get rid of the shower door altogether.. first me, now you... and the injury is actually serious this time. boo... i think we can manage to find things to keep you occupied besides skiing. i'll think of something.
p.s. make sure you take Dr. kimball a diet coke and some peanut butter m&m's... oh wait, just kidding. He doesn't like those anymore. flash him that smile of yours and maybe he won't scare you half to death.

Linda said...

No way!!! Natalie, you are scaring me. I will say some prayers for your surgery and quick recovery. The only good thing is that you are with the family (trying to think of the positives...) Please heal and get rid of the killer shower door!! <3

JulieAnn and the Captain said...

Oh no!!! I hope you feel better soon :)

Jaime said...

Oh no!! No dancing, skiing or shoes. . . eek! Gonna be a rough winter, but I'm sure you can make some lemonade. Wish I could help!

emily said...

holy COW! that is nuts! I hope the surgery goes well and you're back to dancing and skiing soon.

Kat said...

Are you kidding me???? Nat, I hope you heal quick! You are so casual about it in this post, but I'm sure that was traumatizing to have your foot sliced open while standing there naked and wet! Yikes, you are a trooper! Get well soon, love!

If he is the same Dr. Kimball who did the surgery on my son's knee, he is an awesome surgeon, bedside manner, not so much.... PS. I enjoy following your blog and wish you a speedy recovery!

The New Black said...

What a bummer!!

Randi said...

ok, that is so sad. you can send the louboutins to me if you think they will be sad without your feet in them for a bit. ;)
good luck with the surgery!

Laurens_Closet said...

OH MY!!! I hope you have a speedy recovery~ for someone like you, that's a BAD injury!

Please get better soon!

Love,

Your Stalker.

Katie said...

Get feeling better soon!

Carla said...

OMG!!! That scene looks awful! I hope the surgery went well. Can you at least do yoga? Hang in there.

Carolyn said...

No way!! Wow I pray your surgery goes well!

OUCH!!

Julie said...

So sorry about your toe. That crime scene looks downright scary.

b. said...

Dr. Kimball's a great surgeon...I hope it went well!

Amy said...

I have had many a tragedy in the shower, but nothing compares to this!!

Alice Wills Gold said...

I thought I was looking at a crime scene from CSI or something.

CRAZY!!!!

I am so sorry.

And scared.

And hoping that you can sue some glass shower door company.

Wow...so glad to have that old fashioned shower curtain.

I almost cut my big toe off when I was 5 or so. Pitched a horseshoe stake into my foot through my shoe.

Should have listened to my dad who told me to wait until after he pitched the tent.

I am sure that you will be glad to know that I have never had any real problems with my toe.

But, I still can't dance. Only because I lack the coordination :)
