Five Stitches In Time


Hi everyone, Nurse Katie here.

If you were on Facebook yesterday you probably read about the OUCH heard 'round the blogosphere. Glogirly was slicing a loaf of french bread and missed. After the HBO words subsided, she ran off to urgent care with a hand shoved in a roll of paper towels.

Some have asked if WAFFLES was at fault. Well I'm sure we can find a way to blame him for something, but truth be told both Waffles and I were upstairs sleeping just prior to the bread incident. No, we were not sleeping together. Well...sort of. But I didn't like it.


She's crabby, can barely type and is resting as comfortably as Advil will allow. She says it's nothing serious, just 5 stitches and a big bandage.


Thank COD it's not her food hand.

  4. Ouch! I'm so sorry - hope it heals quickly! This is exactly why we don't have any sharp knives in our house!!

  5. Ouch. When the Woman tried to slice off the tip of her finger, she was too busy dancing around the kitchen with said finger in her mouth to make much noise and say any words. I think she was trying self cannibalism but the dog she had at the time went and got her then husband (who is not the Male) who insisted upon doctoring her... Sigh.

  6. Poor Glogirly! Slicing bread is the cause of more knife accidents. It's true! I hope she feels better soon.

  7. We hope it heals quickly ! Tell Glogirly that opening a catfood can is less dangerous than slicing bread. Healing purrs. Loupi and Zorro

  8. Wow! My human and I TOTALLY missed this! I hope it really is as "nothing serious" as she says. And yeah, GOOD thing it is not her food hand - that would be even more awful!

  18. My Mom is always doing stuff like that, we cringe when she sharpens a knife as we envision the upcoming bloody mess. I'm sure it will heal fast and you will be back to normal soon.

  21. This is NOT GOOD! Maybe it was good it was a brad knife, not a chef's knife, but those bread knives are serrated ....... ouch.

  26. hope her hand heals soon. i'm also glad waffles wasn't in the immediate vicinity to pick up any of the hbo words and add them to his vocabulary.

    ReplyDelete
  27. OMC THAT'S AWFUL!!!!!!! Hoping Glogirly is feeling better soon but I have to ask.......she went on Facebook after she sliced it with blood dripping or when she got home? :)
    I did that to my finger once, I was so greedy I was slicing into a frozen bagel and didn't let it thaw.....3 stitches, NOT NEARLY as bad as Glogirly's!! Hoping she is feeling better soon, that is awful!
    But....you are right......Thank COD it wasn't the food hand!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh no! Please feel better and yes, it's a good thing it was not the food hand!!!

  32. Tsk, tsk, tsk--these Humans just can't be left alone for FIVE FREAKING MINUTES without stabbing themselves or sumfing. Sheesh. Thank Cod she can still open your cans and pet you and give you treats and stuff.

    We do hope she feels better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh no! That's one of those moments when you just want to be able to turn the clock back a few seconds. Sending lots of healing energy your way!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh my! Haven't we all done that a time or two?

  37. Oh owie - M says she nearly sliced the tip of her finger off years ago and it hurt so much and she lost a lot of blood. She didn't go to the urgent care and said after she should have. Now she has a bumpy finger because of the scar. Glogirly was wise to go get care. Hugs for your human. Whew, I'm so happy you two can't be blamed for that one.

  38. Oh, yes, good thing it's not her food hand. Hope it heals quickly.

    If Blogger comes up error on this comment too, we give up. (We think Blogger has a drinking problem.)

  42. OMD ouch! Get well soon! Love Dolly (another reason to give up white bread, its dangerous)

  43. Waffles you made our mommy laugh with your remark. Our mommy did that to two of her fingers with a bread knife once. She hollered to Dad that they needed to go to the emergency room. He told her she would have to wait 'cause he was in the middle of processing some film. Can you even imagine! Yes, it was long ago, digital photography hadn't been invented and none of us had been born. But she's never forgotten it. Prayers for Glogirly to heal quickly. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  47. Ouch! I hope it heals quickly. I keep band-aids and gauze in a drawer in my kitchen just for such an emergency. It's been a while since I've cut myself bad enough to need stitches, but those band-aids sure get used up fast! You'd think I'd learn.

  54. Hope you can cute your birthday cake, GG. Or has Gloman banned you from using knivs. We once had someone in the office slice off the top of her finger cutting a bagel. She had to go to hospital. Pop almost sliced the tip of his off on a cat food can but he didn't go to the hospital even though it bleed for hours.

  55. Mum sliced her finger about 5 years ago bad. Didn't see her all evening as she had to do the ER thing. The urgent care was closed already.

    ReplyDelete
  56. We had no idea! Good thing it wasn't her food-"winning" hand, Orange, or you'd shortly be in some sad shape! Get well soon!
