If the sight of blood bothers you, don't look beyond picture # 4.
I had a run-in with a cattle panel when I went to call the horses up last night around 6 PM, and injured myself pretty badly. Cliff wanted to take me to the emergency room, but our new insurance only pays for emergency room visits if you are subsequently admitted to the hospital. So I waited until this morning and called my doctor's office.
The nurse's reaction when she first saw the wound was, "I can't believe you didn't go to the emergency room with this!"
My main concern was tetanus, since the accident happened in the barn area; and I did get my shot.
I think there were thirteen stitches in all.
Dr. G. says I'm a tough old gal.
Just another day in "my country life".
This added later: John Scalzi's "Monday Photo Shoot" assignment is a picture of "something unexpected". So I am using these pictures, although I told him to delete me from his comments if it was too graphic for AOL.
