So funny story... last night I was using my Blender Stick to make batter for my fav paleo friendly brownies when I suddenly just could not resist the urge to binge eat the brownie batter. I stuck my finger onto the blades to wipe out some of the batter when my other hand slipped and hit the "on" button (what a sensitive button that is!) and the blade started spinning and took a chunk of my finger with it. I'm really brave (sarcasm) and immediately broke into a sweat and threw up (how was I a camp director all those years?). The scene that Harrison walked in on was actually hilarious - brownie batter and blood splattered on the walls and me throwing up in the bathroom.
My finger was gushing nonstop so Harrison drove me to Patient First (no wait! talk about a miracle!). Since I am so brave I hadn't had the guts to look at my finger, so the doctor drew this incredibly scientific diagram to show me the issue at hand (see what I did there?):
|yes. the doctor ACTUALLY drew this|
At this point the doctor told me that this type of injury is outside of his comfort zone (shocking considering the level of detail in his diagram above) and sent us to the ER where I speculated who was the Dr. Carter and who was Dr, Carrie Weaver? Then a hand surgeon did some crazy skin grafting and stitching and metal rod inserting and wrapped up my hand.
|I used the "stoned on anesthesia" filter for this one|
So all this to say, I'm going to take a little break until I'm able to use my right hand again, Typing this post took approximately 9 hours (oxy codone is also slowing it down a little haha). So when I'm not fending off my dog as she tries to devour the metal rod that is holding my pointer finger together or rekindling my ER obsession, I will be attempting to read and comment and write, it;s just going to be fewer and further between for the next few weeks.
All because I am a child with no self control when it comes to brownie batter.
PS: It's a lot easier to type on my phone since I have use of both thumbs so I'll be posting recipes on Insta over the next week or so,
