This is what happens when car hood props fail, and car hoods meet human flesh. I have not bled so much in a long time, but I was calm, so was Dr. Girlfriend, and we were able to not only breeze through the ER, we managed to crack up the staff with our silliness in the face of injury.
Suture staples are pretty amazing-the whole process feels like Milton is back there with his red Swingline, but minus the expected pain due to a coating of Lidocaine. Wet in three days, out in ten....I may even do them myself.
