Here we go again...this time an injury with a holiday theme
I had to visit the emergency room again Sunday...this time I tried to put a screwdriver through my hand while shucking oysters for our holiday dinner.
When it slipped and then hit, I yelled, "Shuck! What the shell! Clam-it!" Or something similar. Two hours, an ER visit, three sutures, one superglued thumb and a tetanus shot later I was able to eat the oysters I shucked. I knew that things were bad when I looked into the wound, it had not started bleeding and the edges were white which meant I had cut through the fat layer.
Have a happy new years and stay safer than me.
Funny thing, the injury that hurts the most is the site of the injection. The revenge of the eaten.
