Last night I was making dinner for the fam and wasn't paying attention and totally burned the tip of my middle finger. I think it has to be one of the worst kitchen burns I have ever had. I couldn't take it off ice for longer than a few seconds before it started throbbing. So, Eric gets this genious idea to go to the office and get some Lidocaine to numb it. He had to hurry because I had to leave for YW (yes, I have a new calling) in a few minutes. Now, I am not a wimp. I can take pain. I've had multiple IVs, three epidurals, the list goes on and on.... so I was thinking, it couldn't hurt half as bad. OH MY GOSH, I was so wrong. I was balllllling. Eric shoved that needle in my finger, past the blister and into the tissue below it. Then, he pumped it full of Lidocaine which added to the fluid already building in the blister. It was the most painful thing I have ever experienced. AND after all that pain, it didn't even help. It is still swollen today and it is hurting to type this. I think I am officially changed - I don't know if I will ever be able to let Eric give me a dental injection again.
