Bout Broken

The Corpse Brides, Monster Mash-Up 2011

The Jam I Could Live Without
Mr. Incredible reminding me that we have insurance for a reason.

Our Halloween bout was last Sunday night.  Four jams in I fell and then I got a skate to the face when I was down.  I got up from the floor and felt something roll down my face.  At first I just thought it was a bunch of snot.  You know, when your eyes fill with those pesky tears, your nose fills with an inordinate amount of snot. I caught up to the pack and asked a teammate if I was bleeding.  When she said yes, I looked to a ref, but the jam had already been called off by the jammer.  I headed back to the bench, took a seat, got some ice, and started assessing the damage.

Of course, no one saw me get a wheel to my nose.  I don't know whose skate, and it really doesn't matter.  It was an accident.

Is my nose broken?  Well, it's leaning a little more to the right than it did before.  And there was blood.  And swelling.  And, oh yes, there is pain.   I wish I could post one of the pictures with blood running down my face, but they are all copyright protected.  Boo. 

I'll find out if it is broken tomorrow at the ENT.

  1. Skate to the face, oh no! Glad your nose is only a little tiny bit crooked. :) Hope you had a super fun time! I really miss skating right now in the off-season. Sigh. But I'm going to nationals next week!!!!
