What do we always tell our children? Be very careful when using knives...they are sharp. I know this...I mean I've cut myself a time or two w/those suckers.
My mother in law gave me a gift I was totally thrilled about for Christmas...Ceramic Knives (do you see where this is going?)
The last thing she said was watch out ...those are sharp.....
Hubs and I were making Taco Soup...which by the way rocked...click on recipe...we've made it 3 times now over the holidays....I volunteered to cut the onions...hey any chance to use my new knives. ummmm hello blood and skin...took 4 hrs to get the sucker to quit bleeding. Stitches are not an option considering the fact that ppl won't do lidocaine for pregnant chicks...(I don't understand why you can get a local when getting ur epi, but not for other stuff...I guess they see malpractice if the lidocaine messes w/the baby)
Point is...It hurts...like really badly. I did this Tuesday night and I never took my thumb for granted before...but even more so now. I really need it for taking care of kids! Deep sigh Anyone got ideas for dressing it w/o ripping off new skin/scab and making it bleed all over again???
On 2 bright notes...my spots came back good...well except for the one on my face...it's pre cancer...but I'm leaving it for now since it is in the 'could turn into cancer and may not'. Since it's on my face it's easier to monitor! Praise God!!!
AND...MISS LILY'S CAST CAME OFF...then we headed to the next stop to have a really $$ ugly annoying splint made. She hates it...I don't blame her...it's hard and rubs her. She doesn't have to wear it eating...bathing...or sleeping...but we only take it off at bath time until morning. It's nearly impossible to get on w/one person...and since she hates it ...the less we hold her down the better...it's made of this really hard plastic they molded to her arm in a 90' angle. Just to protect her from failing for the next couple of weeks...You can see by the picture in the after ...she never quits moving!
They didn't have red velcro straps like her favorite color or Doll Olivia...so we settled for bright pink!
I was 35 weeks yesterday....I'm hoping that in the next few weeks it is quiet in the emergency area in our home...I can't take much more stress! As for my low carb low sugar diet I'm supposed to be on...I'm a huge LOSER. I'm sorry I'm weak! If he comes out over 10 lbs...remind me what a Loser I am ok?! In the meantime...the Chick-Fil-A I had yesterday and the bowl of cookies and cream ice cream last night after Taco Soup...really hit the spot! (I'm soooo gonna pay)
(and yes..I photoshopped the belly...no one needs to see that...grins)
