Talk about a stupid move . . .

I was clearing out my kitchen sink so I could fill a vase with water. Well . . there was a serrated knife sticking point up in the sink and I cut myself on it right at my left index finger knuckle. OUCH!!!

I babysit my grand-kids, and didn't want to frighten them with pressing my Life Alert because I wasn't bleeding much, so I IMed my hubby. BTW, I have Life Alert because of my stroke & I am on Coumindin - a blood thinner. Anyway, he came home and took me to the emergency room to get it looked at. No stitches, but my knuckle is super glued together with a splint! So much for me cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

All in all, it wasn't a bad experience, though it scared me a lot. The grand kids behaved wonderfully while waiting for me, so they earned a sundae at Cold Stone. OK, the sundae was for me for staying pretty calm & not freaking out, but they earned it too for behaving while sitting in an emergency room for an hour.

Suggestion & requests for files always welcome.

See you soon!
