“I couldn’t believe I was standing in a puddle of my blood, with only a tee shirt and panties on, surrounded by strangers as I closed my eyes and tried to remember to breathe.
I felt a horrific pain in my stomach, like a punch to the gut. I looked down and saw I had cuts all over my body. What the fuck just happened?!
My stomach and my legs looked like I had been involved in some sort of brutal knife fight. I could not believe my eyes. In a panic, I hobbled through shards of glass, cutting the bottom of my feet, and making my way just inside the doorway to scream for help.
As I called for help, I assessed my body and saw a large piece of glass sticking out of my hip. My body was hot and tense. My husband, Will, was running towards me, pulling up his pants and rushing from the bathroom.
“What happened!?” He exclaimed. I tell him, “A glass bottle exploded in my hand when I picked it up,” as I was crying. He is trying to get a look at this large fragment protruding from my hip.
I’m looking to him to try and read his face and reaction to see how bad this is. He stays calm. He is the calmest in tense situations, so this scared me because I looked at him to indicate how I should react. I tried to remember to breathe as my body started to get weaker.
At this point, our daughter, Jazmyne, comes in, still rubbing her eyes from just waking up, and asks, “What is going on?” She starts to approach and can see how bad the situation is. While her dad is kneeling to get a closer look, I’m purposely trying not to look, as I can feel the blood dripping out of my body. Looking to see if he should pull it out, Jazmyne and I both exclaim, “NO! We don’t think you should pull it out.” I told him we had seen one too many Grey’s Anatomy episodes to know—DO NOT PULL IT OUT. “Call 911, Jazmyne!” he yelled as the blood flow continued to pool on the floor around my feet.
As Jaz called 911, Will was holding a towel around the area. He asked her to bring me a long tee shirt before the first responders arrived since I was half-naked due to the weekly weigh-in. Within minutes they pulled up.”
