Saturday morning it snowed here a few incehs so we decided to head to NKY to my sister's house to celebrate the Baptism of my Nephew Zachary! There is always something with my family and you never know what to expect. I sure didn't expect to my giving my Brother In law Stitches!! It's a story let me tell you! Those of you who don't really know me or my family My bro-in-law Matt is a Family Practice Dr. One of the very best might I add:) We were getting ready for dinner last night when he and my sister were putting the leaf in their dining room table to try and accomodate the whole clan when something went wrong and he sliced his thumb. He wrapped it up so he could finish supper and we could eat and he said we would go down to his office atfer we ate to see if he would need stitches. I hate that he cut his finger ( I know it hurt so bad and he acted like it was nothing) but come on I'm in nursing school so I'm very interested in this stuff!! Anyways...Me, Dad, Matt, and Timmy went down to his office to see what we needed to do. Sure enough he said he needed a few stitches but it was going to be pretty hard to give himself stitches with hsi left hand since he hurt his thumb on his right hand so he needed help. This is where I come in :) I got my gloves on and he got the supplies out.. He had to have 3 shots of Lidocaine ( to numb) which went right into the cut.. he did the first one himself to show me ( how he did that I have no idea) and then I did the others and we started sticthing up. He helped me and showed me how it had to be done... I loved it!!! I felt so awesome "throwing" those stitches and I think I did a pretty good job for my first time :) At least he said I did.. he would say that though I am his favorite sister in law!!! I then asked how long it would have taken him to do this to a patient and he said he would have been done in 5 minutes.. umm we were there for an hour and a half:) Needless to say... I am going to school to be a nurse not a Dr. so I will never be giving stitches unless my Brother In Law cuts himself again ( I don't want thaat to happen but it was an awesome experience.) Here are some pictures.. didn't have my camera with me so these with taken with my Phone!
