This is what I spent last night taking care of. My middle daughter cut her forehead open and I knew that it needed more than a band-aid. I took her to the ER, and they refused to get a plastic surgeon to stitch it, so they just super-glued it (that's all DermaBond is, really). I was a nice "clean" cut, with no rough edges, but COME ON!! It's RIGHT in the MIDDLE of her forehead and we can't hide it, and as you can see, the DermaBond didn't seal the cut totally shut like stitches would have, which means by virtue of that alone, it will be a wider scar than it could have been. They even gave me info on "reversion" as we left, which is work on the scar after it heals poorly and I'm thinking, "why not call the doc in and have him do it right the first time?!?!" Maybe I wasn't pushy enough - I hope my daughter isn't scarred for life because of me. Vertical scars heal much less well than horizontal ones when they're on the forehead. A vertical scar goes "against the grain" of the skin on your forehead, and the tension is against it rather much more so from the natural pull of the skin. Anyway, I must sound really vain, but she's my baby and she was (is?) perfect before this. I hope it heals with little evidence left behind!
So, this and some other things that have been going on with my husband's car (he's not here to take care of it, of course!) have been stressful lately. I wish I were a man sometimes because men don't take women seriously, even when I am quite certain I have a higher education than they do (I went to the Air Force Academy where we take so many Engineering classes as core classes that it has us leaving with close to what would be a minor in General Engineering if such a thing existed!!!), and know that a car should MOVE when you put it in drive/reverse and don't need college to tell me that! They are treating me like I'm stupid.
Unfortunately it may be a while before I get to post. We go out of town next week and I promise I'm still alive, but unless I get some stamping time in (crossing my fingers!!), you won't be hearing from me until we get back home (it will be a while). I may not get to stamp then though either because my hubby gets back from his deployment at the beginning of September!!! Yippee!!!!
So....if you don't already, SUBSCRIBE to my blog. I love each and every comment that you guys leave me, and don't want to lose you during my absence!!! I will try to schedule some posts though, but can't promise anything.
