I should really stick to easy make dinners and not try anything fancy. Should go back to my chicken and pasta nights.... LOL
Last night I was making (yet another pasta dish) Spaghetti. I had brown beef on the stove and I was going to cut up some sausage to make it more lumpy and better I guess. The sausage was frozen. I went with a knife towards my left hand to open the package the knife slipped and went right in between my thumb and pointer finger.
It's about 1/4 to 1/2 inch cut, but about 1 1/2 dip.
I have a knife phobia this did not help me at all. I felt sick right away. Good thing that as I was yelling for Katherine to get me my cell it rang and it was dh. He called my best friend to come over and check my hand out.
I couldn't even look at it. I took the knife out grabbed a towel and squeezed so the blood doesn't gush out.
My arm started to feel numb little after wards, but I think that was because I was squeezing it so much. I didn't got to the ER or anything. There was a big traffic on the freeway (yes we have one freeway going in that direction) and dh didn't think that sitting in that for 3 or how ever many hours would be a good thing. So we decided to see what the morning will bring.
My hand is sore this morning. But it's not feeling numb any more, so that's good.
I had no clue how much you use those two fingers until you can't use them that well. Dh wrapped up my hand last night and I could not do anything. If I'd move the fingers the cut would hurt and little of skin would rip. Yuck!
So now I miss the use of my thumb and pointer finger. I have a lot of projects that need to be done by this Saturday. I have a recipe album to finish for a bridal shower, a memory game for a birthday party not to mention the stuff that I need to do around the house.
So that's how my evening was yesterday.
