She hurt her typing hand...maybe getting stitches, even.

Rest assured, she is here, keeping an eye on all Foosters, and smiling at the wonderful Foo-fulness of the group.

Couldn't she just type with her other hand? Of maybe a pencil in her mouth or something? Foo seems a little less energetic without her...

She's worked ten days in a row...she has no energy to spare at the moment!

I know she will be back, totally refreshed, in a short while.

Hi everyone! *waves, left handed* Scotty alerted me to this thread - I'm okay, thanks for caring! I was working a lot (10 days in a row), then I volunteered an additional 12 hours each on Saturday and Sunday for a fundraiser.

During the week a good friend of mine died a very tragic death from an asthma attack. She was found with the inhaler in one hand and the phone in the other. It hit her really fast. We used to joke about who has asthma worse based on the medications we take........

I cut my right hand really bad (it kept bleeding over night) a couple of days ago and I thought it was going to heal okay but to be honest with you, the cuts are now showing signs of infection. I cleaned them really good, I thought. Ya know, the OCD thing...I think I still have remnants of the offending object in there because it is a bit (okay it's HELLA) painful at the slightest pressure. I really should have gotten stitches but instead I super glued them.

*sigh* (hoorts to type)

There's no ice cream in this house either. That's just totally messed up.

Sorry for your loss. Now grab the keys to Shorty and get some of the new Ben and Jerry's flavor "Pistachio Pistachio". Michele is grabbing her keys to try it now that I mentioned it.

I went to get the camera because there was blood EVERYWHERE - on the counter, on the floor, on the cabinets and on the tablecloth. A nice good cut is right on my wrist. I yelled over to someone in the house...."QUICK!! GET THE CAMERA!! I HAVE TO POST THIS!!" But to no avail. The batteries needed charging.

But it was cool!! Blood all over my hand coming from my wrist. For a minute there I felt all emo and stuff. There was a LOT of blood dripping down my hand off of the fingertips. I missed a great Kodak moment.

So sorry to hear about your friend, Siu -- that's really scary. Glad that you're doing ok, but get that cut looked at if you think it's infected <concerned look>
