Ouch, ouch, OUCH!

Keeping me in stitches

So my oldest manlet is a fiend for olives.  He’s always adding olives to the grocery list & the guys at Subway know by now to seriously load his turkey sandwich with tons of ’em.  For Yule, I found a 3.5 pound can of sliced olives for him as a funny gift.  It was a HUGE hit with him – he opened it right away & he sat there eating them with his grandfather as we finished opening gifts.  (You already see where this is going, don’t you?!)

Yesterday, I was putting the can back in the fridge after moving it to find something else.  It slipped.  I caught it.  Sliced open both hands, luckily the left hand was just the thumb & only needed a bandaid.  The right hand, not so lucky.  3-4 hours and 5 stitches later, we were back home.

My first real stitches!

My first "real" stitches!

At least it was a dual purpose visit – she checked out my lungs to make sure I didn’t have pneumonia while I was there.  It wasn’t, which I already knew.  But she gave me antibiotics & cough meds anyway since I’ve had the stupid bronchitis for over a week.  She said if you have the nasty cough a week into it without it getting better, then it’s time to start meds.  Good to know for the future since everyone kept giving me grief about going to the doc.  LOL

Knitting & Running

With the bronchitis, I couldn’t run, of course.  But now with the damn stitches, I can’t knit now either!!!  *sob*  I’m hoping that it stops hurting before too long & I’ll be able to knit soon.  Guess I’m up for reading a lot the next couple of days!

      The pain is mostly manageable with regular over the counter pain meds, though the deep down ache is still there. It also hurts like crazy if I bump it, but at least I can finally type somewhat. Still cannot knit, but might try it again later today. I’m catching up on reading, at any rate. LOL

    Looks like Frankensteins hand. LOL LOL !!! Do use the rescue remedy from Dr. Bach regularly, it helps/speeds up healing, I have living proof running around in my house. Love the stole, pattern btw…
