...first of all I wanted to thank you all for your comments, support and wonderful advice. Obviously many of you have been in these shoes before. That is so sad to me on so many different levels, family should be the place where you get to be who you are without being judged. It's a fantasy I carry in my little head...must have watched too much t.v. when I was growing up. "Brady Bunch," "Waltons," "Father knows Best," "Donna Reed," all gave me an unrealistic view of 'family.'
On to other things:
Today the hubs had a run in with the electric pruning shears. Ouch! He will be fine/he is fine. But here's the funny thing. He cut his pinky finger quite deeply and that sucker bled and bled and bled some more. He is on blood thinners so getting any kind of cut to stop bleeding is sometimes futile and we end up in the ER. After wrapping it up and getting him over to the ER, a long wait of about two hours with him holding it higher than his heart to slow down the bleeding, and finally getting back to see the doctor you will never guess what they did. After unwrapping it and checking for foreign objects, then a quick clean with saline they super-glued it shut. Yep, super-glue! The doctor said that's how they treat these bleeder now instead of stitching them up. Clean it up then glue it shut. Now, there's something new to add to our first aid kit!
Have a good Monday...
