So, the roommate and I had a little Thanksgiving dinner and my night ended early. About an hour ago, I hit guardrail on the stairs and it gashed my eyelid. Here's a picture of it.
WARNING: MAY BE GRAPHIC
It stopped bleeding but it's looking like that for right now.
I have two choices:
A. Check myself in to an emergency room and get stitches...co-pay on my health insurance is $100
B. Go to walmart and apply vaseline, neosporin, and a butterfly bandage...and maybe go see a doc or urgent care on Friday?
I'll be refreshing my blog to see what should I do...
Update: I just returned and indeed I do need stitches. It was a deep cut according to the doc. I had 4 of them right above my eye....on the eyelid itself.
I'll probably look weird for a few days, but the sunglasses will cover that up, heheh.
Here's where they stitched up:
I only spent $80 compared to $100 for co-pay. It's better getting it checked now than never. Thanks guys!
PS- There goes my Black Friday spending, LOL
