    how exciting my first self-suture

    this morning I was adjusting a sheath on one of my fancy custom knives and cut myself badly. one of those cuts where you start sweating instantly and think: oh crap!

    well, it was very deep and I thought about driving to my doc but figured I'd try to "Rambo" myself back together. easier said than done! I dug out my Y2K suture kit and found I only had one suture needle size 27mm way too big! but I tried it anyway. I squirted some xylocain/lidocaine in the wound several times and finally the flow lessened and I got to work. I tried to control the needle with forcepts but had no dexterity in my left hand so switched to fingers. the base of the needle was so fat it kept ripping out and I had to start over and over. arg! not fun. finally got one stitch across the main part of the wound and called it a day even though I could use 3 more. got it wrapped up now and hopping that it doesn't start gushing again. typing sucks! and the kitchen looks like a slasher movie was filmed here. icky.

    hope your day goes better than mine is going!

    OMG DET,That is amazingly BAD and GOOD.Terrible that you cut yourself,of course but good that you are strong enough to stitch yourself up...That takes GUTS...A dog tore my duck apart once and i stuffed the guts back in and sewed it up with fishing line.The duck went on to live for years...Maybe a Dr. visit is the best way to get it to heal right...I poured honey in the ducks wound and he never got infected but I am concerned that you may not be so lucky...Please take care of yourself...

    No seriously, I am sorry that happened! Evie's right.... you might need to get it checked out when you can but at the very least keep it disinfected so you dont get an infection. Hope you day looks up from here!

    D is officially nuts- but sober, so has my respect. Maybe DX should take the toys away from D until he can be more responsible with them! lol
