I hope everyone had a wonderful Xmas. I definitely had an eventful one. I was trying to help clean up the dishes before dinner so everyone could enjoy their meal and no one would be stuck in the kitchen afterwards on dish duty. The final dish, rinsing it under the water. It slipped and hit the sink basin and broke into very large pieces. One of those pieces went straight through my palm. Why did I try to catch the bowl?? So I didn't get to sit and enjoy dinner with my family and friends, instead I spent my Xmas Eve being rushed to the ER with a blood-soaked towel wrapped around my hand. Luckily, they saw me within 20 minutes and I had some good pain meds in my system within the hour. 6 stitches, they didn't hurt a bit....the numbing needle however, gave the word pain a whole new meaning for me. YOUCH!!!
This is after 72 hours....swollen, throbbing like crazy, pain meds not helping much. Every time I move it hurts more. Very annoying I tell ya.
Oh and wouldn't ya know it's my left hand and I'm a lefty. Merry Xmas to me!!! LOL So please don't think I've stopped stamping, I do have some fabulous things in store...but I must rest for a bit and let this wound heal. :( Stitches come out in 10 days so I better be able to use my hand by then. I miss you all, so drop me a note and tell me how wonderful your holidays were!! xoxoxo
