ouch

The weekend started with a bang, as I nearly amputated part of my left index finger on Friday around midnight. I was using an exacto knife while making 'water bottle labels' for my son's birthday. Note to self: do not use a dull blade while exhausted with an infant screaming in the background! I landed myself a trip to the ER along with a really nasty looking finger. We managed to pull off the party on Saturday, however, and Gram had a blast! Sunday he became really sick which we just learned is the result of an ear infection we've been battling for a month. I will do my best to keep up with posts this week, but am not making promises as I am adapting to only being able to use 9 fingers, nursing a very sad 2 year old back to health, and taking care of a three week old. I know, however, I still have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week!

Oh my gosh, you have a lot going on! I gashed my hand open with a circle cutter blade recently - makes you really appreciate having two working hands, doesn't it?

Enjoy your littles and the adjustment to Mom of two, the blog can wait!

wow.
you've got your 9 fingers full!
i still have several scars on my hands from my days in design school...
staying up way too late + dull xacto blades + mat board and foam core = lots of cuts.
I never made a trip to the emergency room though.
of course, i didn't have a screaming infant OR a toddler to take care of at the time.
happy healing!
