This Sh*t is Bananas

B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

I wouldn't really consider myself accident prone, but maybe I should open my eyes. I tend to get hurt while on vacation. There was that one time in Boston I twisted my ankle, ended up in the ER, and was on crutches. Then in the Dominican Republic I got stung by a bee on Steroids in the butt cheek and it was swollen and I couldn't sit on it. And just last weekend I was in Chicago and slipped on a banana peel. A BANANA PEEL. Is that even real life? Sadly, I can't make this crap up.

As my blogger friends and I walked up to the bean I stepped on a banana peel and almost fell, but caught myself. That tweaked something. At least we got a cute pictures in front of the Bean right after it happened and you can't even tell I'm in pain!


(skip paragraph if you are easily grossed out)

After a few days of weird pain, I noticed blood and liquid coming out of my belly button. Sorry for the visual! That was enough to scare me into a doctor's visit.

My diagnosis? Tore my fascia tissue above my belly button. There was concern that I had a hernia, but I think I'm in the clear.

Yay for clumsy traveling!

Holy crap! That's crazy! Hope it isn't a hernia. Good luck!! By the way, I can totally see getting a twisted ankle in Boston - all those cobblestones and uneven walkways.

Poor thing! That is crazy though! I tend to run in things a lot and I'm the one that falls up the stairs ha! Glad you're okay though :)

Jodi said...

Oh jeez what a strange injury! I thought people only slipped on banana peels in the movies. haha!

Dana @ five30three said...

I am laughing so hard I think I might tear my fascia tissue too. Oooh, you poor thing. Maybe next time we should come visit you in LA since you're less accident-prone at home.

Oh, and I'm still upset that there is an eggplant image on the Emoji emoticon keyboard but not a banana. That sh*t really is B-a-n-a-n-a-s!

Sami said...

I second Dana! Let's come to LA, but I want to go to Disney Land while we're there haha! I can't believe that happened.. I feel so bad that we dragged you around for a whole nother day while you were in pain! :( Emoji def needs a banana icon!

The whole time you were like "Wow, I'm in pain. I really don't feel good." And the rest of us were, "Let's walk another 3 miles!" Poor thing!

Christina said...

Whoa! I didn't even know a belly button could bleed! I'm glad you're ok. And now I can make fun of you for being a cartoon, slipping on banana peels. Ha!

OMG, I've never heard of such a thing, but that sounds super painful! This just gave me a new fear of falling. So what does one do to treat a torn fascia tissue??

Take care, girl!
