Britt made me miss my show

Ha ha, this really isn't about any TV show but I kept teasing him through out the whole ordeal. He got home from work and starting on a little project that required him to cut the bottom off a plastic bottle(don't ask what that project was though). I cautioned him a few times in the past and more tonight that no matter how skilled he thinks he is, he should never cut towards himself. Well he threw caution to the wind tonight and was cutting towards his hand with a razor blade and it slipped and cut right through his skin between his thumb and first finger. He is funny because I hear him in the bathroom saying "oh no" and other things similar only really calm. I knew he had cut himself I just wasn't sure how bad. Then he says "Crystal grab the girl and lets go up to your parents." I asked him if I could see it and he didn't really want me to see, finally he let me see and I knew it would need stitches. So we called me parents to come and watch the girl(and becaue Britt didn't believe me and/or thought my dad could sew it up). My parents agreed that he need to get it stitched up so we took off. We had to go to South Hill to the same day clinic, the hospital would have really made me a crabby wife. The nurse and Doctor were really nice even though we came in 30 minutes before closing. He got 4 stitches and we were home just 2 hours after he cut himself! Not so bad for an emergency visit to the Docs. Here are the before and after pictures, Britt is making me put them on. In fact he wanted me to take pictures so I could put it on the blog...he is funny considering he never gets on here.

Here it is all sewn up.

5 lil' notes:

Geeze Britt! Crystal maybe you should put him in a plastic bubble so he can't hurt himself anymore! :-)

Hahaha I Love Jen's comment! Man that had to have hurt!!! Ouch!!!! At least he isn't riding bikes anymore. So can he use his hand? How deep did it go? It looks pretty deep. Britt called me last night and so in my dreams I was dreaming of what it looked like. I was half awake when he called. hahahaha So you can tell Britt he had me dreaming about his hand. We miss you all!!! Love you guys!!!!

It wasn't really deep, it just wouldn't stay closed. His hand is sore but still in good working condition, didn't cut anything important.

I am glad it wasn't that bad! Thank goodness! It is good to hear that he can use his hand still! : ) I better go feed the troops!

YIKES!!! How's he feeling? I cut that little flap of skin between my thumb & first finger; I should have gotten stitches just because it wouldn't stay closed either. Good thing you got him in there!!!
