Another Kitchen Mishap…

… Well, it looks like I’ll be taking a few days off from blogging. I cut my thumb terribly last night and spent the evening in the emergency room. Luckily, I only needed four stitches but I won’t be able to do much with my right hand for a few days. I’ll be back to cooking and blogging as soon as I can.

    Hope you heal quickly. Sit back and watch the Olympics for the rest of the week!

  7. so sorry to hear about your accident.

  8. Take it easy & heal properly. Read a good book & enjoy someone else cooking for you for a while.

  9. So sorry to hear about your accident…same thing happened to me a couple of years ago and while I recovered completely, I never realized how inconvenient it could be.

  10. So sorry Pam, hope you feel better soon!!!

  11. Oh Pam, so sorry. Get well soon, sharp knives in the kitchen are a blessing but need to be treated with care. I am also telling myself that as well!! Diane

  12. Oh my goodness.. it must be bad if you were in the emergency room!! Hope it heals soon… take care of you!

  13. Hello Pam
    So sorry to hear about your mishap. Use the time to rest as much as you can and trust you will heal very quickly.

  14. I think you wealth of recipes will suffice while you totally recover the use of one of the most important digits on the hand. Umm, have fun thumbing (groan) through periodicals in a more leisurely way than usual. Just take it easy.

  15. Hope your thumb is feeling better soon.

  16. Be careful; heal up well. Let your daughter play in the kitchen, just not with knives. I know the ER is not a fun place to pass an evening.

  17. oh Pam! I’m so sorry to hear that. Hopefully you’ll be feeling better soon!

  18. So sorry for the accident.. Hope u’ll be back and ok really soon, will miss your yummy recipes. Take care!!

  19. That’s awful! I hope you recover swiftly and you’re not in too much pain. I’m really clumsy so I guess I’m lucky in that my knives are so blunt they barely cut my veggies!

  20. Oh I am so sorry to hear about your thumb! About three years ago I cut off the tip of my left index finger with a huge santoku knife. The doctor sewed it back on, but it’s still numb. Went I first got to the emergency room, they told me to sign in and take a seat. Then I reached in my purse, held up the plastic bag with the cut off finger tip and asked if they wanted to put it in the refrigerator. That got me right on in to see a doctor!!

  21. Hi Pam, sorry about the finger. I keep an eye on all your cooks and many have been great! Hope to see you back soon! Don

  22. Oh, so sorry to hear about your thumb! Hope it heals up quickly.
