Dine Without Whine - A Family 

Friendly Weekly Menu Plan
I Got Stitches!
You know in movies where you're watching some sword or knife fight and some guy gets cut across the stomach but fights on? I have much more sympathy now.

Last night while preparing dinner I sliced my finger open.

I stuck it in my mouth and yelled for the girls to get rags and ice, which I then put on said finger without looking.

I can handle anything the girls do to themselves, but not what I do to myself.

After I had calmed down a bit, I told Rebecca she was going to have to look at it and tell me if I needed stitches.

Luckily, my doctor husband arrived home just then and said I was fine. So I told Rebecca what to do to finish dinner, and she did a lovely job (considering we had guests).

But by 8:30 it was still bleeding, so Keith took me down to the ER and they stitched me up.

And it still HURTS! A LOT!

I never thought cuts like this would hurt. I've never done anything to myself before other than sprain an ankle. But this stings. And typing is hard. And I feel very sorry for myself.

But I'm grateful I have a daughter who will step in without complaining and make dinner the way I tell her to. Now I just want the pain to go away.

Ouch! I had a glass break on me last year while washing it requiring a trip to the ER. Only thing, I was home alone. Poor hubby, I called him and I should have calmed myself down first because I knew it was bad. When he answered I was crying so hard I couldn't explain right away what was wrong. What a great (nerve racking) phone call that was for him to receive at work. He came home and took me in. They were able to glue the cut shut on my pinky finger and put my finger in a splint to keep it from breaking back open. Just over a year later I can still see where I was cut but it is fading.
I hope yours heals quickly! I am sure you know this but hold it above your heart so it doesn't throb so much and prop it up on pillows while you sleep.

Last year I literally cut off the top of my finger trying on a Kelty kid backpack in the store. I could NOT believe how much it hurt. Luckily I was with my mom who helped me with my baby, but no matter how long I waited it stil really, REALLY hurt. And I'm no sissy. The only thing that helped (and I hadn't even heard of this stuff yet) was Neosporin + pain relief. I swear. Within 30 seconds it was back to normal. And, ok, it was the VERY top of my finer. No bone, no nail, but still! I feel ya.
