Good Morning Jan 2, 2007 tues

  1. Hello, I am still awake will be going to bed soon. Went to the ED tonight, dh had 14 sutures in his hand, He was using a screwdriver to pry something and the screwdriver shatter and then his hand went into the shattered screwdriver and gashed open his hand. On the meaty part of palm between thumb and forefinger. I am sure it will be fairly uncomfortable.

    Ouch!! I hope your dh will be ok. No washing dishes for him.

    I worked in a restaurant in hs and was doing prep work. I had to cut cabbage and I had a butcher knife(scary) and went to slice it in half. When I did the knife slipped and about cut my finger off. So much blood. I cannot stand the sight of my own blood - it makes my head spin. Other people's blood doesn't bother me.

    Ok, thinking about my blood is giving me the whirlies.

    What a way to start off the new year - been watching football all day and eating. I'm not looking forward to school. Been enjoying myself too much. And then it hit me - I have 60 days before I leave on vacation and I don't have any spring clothes. I have summer and winter with nothing in between. Gotta go shopping. :spin:

    hi jmgrn65....i just read your post in yesterday's thread. how scary and painful that must've been!!! i hope it heals and he has no residual effects.

    thanks it should heal all right he will just have a nasty scar.
    We were watching football all day, had to tape the rosebowl, becuase his little incident happened just as the rose bowl started. So we just finished watching it.
    I think I am heading to bed waaaay past my bedtime.

    If you're a Michigan fan, don't watch it. I'm actually a Notre Dame fan but was rooting for a Big Ten school to win.

    Watching the Tositos bowl right now. Boise State just threw an interception in the last minute - it's now 35 - 28 Oklahoma winning.

    No one I like has won this year. Maybe I should stop watching.

    Good morning folks. Getting ready to go to work. My patient yesterday died about 15 minutes after he got to the care center. At least he didn't die at home as his wife feared. I'm working at the care center today, myself. Not my preferance but I go where I'm sent. Speaking of going, I'd better get moving. You all have a great God blessed day.

    Mornin' folks.

    I read the reviews for the new Rocky movie - most of 'em say it's good. So maybe I'll go watch it

    Think I'll nose around for a bit...

    Thanks Siri

    I'm still in a bit of a funk with my personal life.
    But I'll keep plugging away....

    Just realised something - I've been working mad hours the past 6 weeks, but somehow my bank account doesn't seem to reflect it! Hello? Where is my money?

    My aunt laughed and said "wait till you have kids... and then wait till they turn into teenagers".

    Morning all!!

    Roy.....let me know if Rocky Balboa is worth seeing. DH wants to see it, we've watched all the other Rocky movies multiple times. LOL....I'm sure we will end up watching it no matter what. Rocky is to Italian men what the cape is to Superman....inseparable!

    Happy New Year peeps!! lol....too much celebration for me....hehe....I didn't feel so good yesterday.
