Something that really bothers me...

I just wanted to complain for a moment about my thumb. My sisters would tell you that I sucked my thumb until I was way too old (which would be true) and my mom always told me that I was born sucking my thumb... but that was my left thumb. I'm talking tonight about my right thumb. This thumb is a slightly neglected appendage, since I am left-handed. I've never thought much about this thumb to tell you the truth. What do they say? You never really appreciate something until it's gone? Well, my right thumb is not gone, but had a close shave on Saturday (Thanks to Dad's sharp knives and a small heap of bacon. ) Yuk. Let me tell you, life really stinks when you have a big cut on your right thumb. I've been teased for three days about my bandaids... do you know how hard it is to cover the top of a thumb with a bandaid? It takes several to get the job done. I also been wearing one rubber glove for tasks such as dishes, diaper changes, washing my face, and cleaning. But the hardest thing I have had to do is try and shower without my right thumb! Such a small thing, I know, but it really bothers me!!

I know exactly what you're talking about. I cut my index finger with a rotary cutter a couple of years ago. It was terrible. But, talk to Deann and see if she can get you a special dressing the nurses use on top of I.V.'s. Here in California we call it tegadrem. It's great. It's clear like saran wrap and sticks really well.

Cuts and burns are the worst.

I have probably cut the tips of my fingers a gaziliion times! It is annoying. Sorry! I'm feeling your pain!

It's amazing how you don't appreciate something until it's injured or hurting. I hope it heals quickly.

Oh man, I miss out on all the best gory family incidents. :-) Really, I'm sorry about your thumb, although I'm glad it wasn't your left thumb. That would have been extra bad. Here's kisses and a "boo boo boo" for quick healing.

If you had cut it off, they would have to sew your big toe on your hand. See? It could be worse!

I really am sorry about your thumb and your gross band aids. Here is to quick healing!

Oh Nimmy...I wish I could make it all better. Hang in there!

So sorry! I've done that and I swear it's all I could think about for a week because it was such a pain to not be able to use my thumb.
