Go ahead and laugh at me...

almost everyone else has.
Okay, so most of you know this but those of you who don't get ready for a laugh!
Last Friday, I cut my finger while washing my food processor blade. At first I tried to hide it from Bill (I don't know why). So, I ran upstairs to "check" out the situation on my own. Not a good idea, too much blood for me. Then, I go back down stairs with my finger wrapped in a towel and tell Bill, "I cut myself and I am going to pass out!" He tells me to sit on the dining room chair.
I am crying and yelling at him because I can't see and my stomach is sick. He is trying to put a band aid on and I start to fall over, he carries me to the couch. All the time I am yelling at him because somehow this is all his fault!
My poor children...Tyler was turning green because he is as bad as me when it comes to blood, Jacob thought I was dying (his words), and poor Joshua is crying because he is so worried about me. Isaiah, well, he was probably flushing something down the toilet!
But back to the story, after I come back to reality, we eat dinner and I ask Bill to take the band aid off because it is too tight and my finger is throbbing. He said, "No" What?!? I said, "Take this band aid off and change it." So, he says, "They can take it off at the hospital when I take you in to get stitches." Oh no, that is not happening so I start to feel sick again and put my head between my knees and tell him, "I can not get stitches, I think I am going to puke!" I didn't and we left.
The hospital was another story. Have you ever had two needles stuck in the base of your finger? Pukey again! So, anyway, long story short it got numb the doctor came in and I said, "DO NOT tell me what you are doing, just do it." I did not need the play by play.
Two hours, two stitches, an numb finger, $150, and a HUGE bandage later we head home.
Now, let me just tell you, I have given birth 3 times without so much as a Tylenol. It doesn't make sense to me either but these stitches are due to come out within the next day or so and the very thought is making me sick. I am not quite sure I am going to get through it without passing out again!
Enjoy the laugh!
