ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 18

Most of the day I have been watching my thumb. As I was chopping some veggies over 24 hours ago, I was thinking how good my knife skills are. POW! the knife slipped and I may have a new thump print to look forward to. I had to decide if it was bad enough to have stitches. I decided,no.But the sucker would not stop with the blood. i finally got it to almost stop dripping,  but not quite. Scene two. Grandson went to grocery store and came back with a spray wound cleanser, A spray for pain, a spray to coagulate the blood, gauze ,tape and steri strips for when it stops with the leaking. Finally, after three more gauze changes,and using all of the above products, I am almost ready for the steri strips. You forget how useful a thumb can be. I wanted to play with my new Air fryer and I did,  but I mostly worked with one hand and four fingers.Another thing about thumbs, you hit them a lot. Especially when they stick out.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
