Kristina vs. Knife. Knife Wins.
There was so much blood, I couldn't tell if bone was exposed. A bit panicky, I told my daughter to run outide and fetch daddy. She must have looked quite panicky, because my husband raced in awfully quick. Long story short, I couldn't get the bleeding to slow down, so my husband took me to the emergency room. By the time a doctor actually saw me, the bleeding had nearly stopped. ("It bleeds and bleeds and bleeds when you do this to yourself," the doc said.) Fortunately, I didn't expose any bone. But because I entirely cut off the tip of the finger, leaving no flap of skin, they couldn't do stitches - so they bandaged me up, gave me a tetnus shot, and sent me home. It's gonna take quite a while to heal completely, and they tell me it will hurt a lot.
Right now, it's not painful...but keeping it dry while housekeeping - and typing with any kind of speed - isn't easy.
So...please be patient with me. Posting might be slower because my typing is sooooo much slower.
As for the knife...I suppose I'll use it again. But I doubt I will ever slice pattypan squash again!
