We are very lucky and thanked KaliMa that it missed his artery in his arm by mere mms!
Hit him in the middle of his two eyes but did not hit his eyes!
It did not cut the tendon on his right thumb, though we could see the tendon!
OUCH OUCH OUCH!
The cut was about 3/4-inch and 1/4 inch deep
We spent from 2-7:00 pm dealing waiting at the glorious Kaiser ER with his hand UP
so it might not bleed more while they took people in order with no thought to triage
I saw no one else who looked like they needed immediate attention.
Next time Mitchell is going to take my advice and begin bleeding all over the floor.
I had time to sketch and so, sketch I did
always have that with me but NO blood red watercolors damn damn damn….
M’s core temperature dropped from shock and freezing air conditioning
(in Oregon, really necessary? open a window…)
until they had to wrap him all up in warm blankets.
Crapity crap crap medical facility.
Five shows of shark attack. PuhLeeze. All evil all the time!
Annoyed at the hating on a whole species!
Then there was the Lusty Red-Haired Wench,
and in true Oregon style
(I apologize to my fellow Oregonians but really, it is a thing here)
she was corseted up laced up leathered up and trying to be all sexy
but then she put the damn thing over a grey striped tee that hung down over her bottom.
*giggle* *not hollywood haight lalaland fer sure*
The teenage boy across from her never looked up from his smart phone
at the large rack that was right under his nose, and
I heard my brother Patrick in my head, wondering what the hell?
She did look pissed most of the time but maybe she knew I was sketching her?
Doc was a snappy dresser, apple green checked shirt and bright orange mocs.
He had 4 stitches but could not stitch everywhere because it came down next to his nail. He didn’t cry but he almost did as the damn numbing agent hurt like hell…
They did not give him antibiotics. I wish they had but they said it didn’t need it,
and Mitchell said he didn’t want them. Thankfully he’s had his tetanus shot.
I told him next time he wants Friday
off early PLEEZE just take it!
