My wife cut herself while cooking a few years ago and I was living in another state. The cut was bad enough she needed to visit the ER but nothing life threatening. The adrenaline sort of kicked in and I felt a bit confused on where to go because I didn’t know where the closest ER was.

Well we live in a new house and I didn’t learn from my mistake and she cut herself bad enough that it needs ER attention, so I had to google maps up the nearest ER in a bit of an adrenaline rush.

My advice is to find the two nearest 24 hour emergency rooms and print up their info and directions and put it up on a fridge or next to your first aid kit.

By the way, the Comcast internet is out in my entire area and I got lucky mobile data works otherwise I would have been screwed with no way to know how to reach the ER

It's always good to know where the nearest ER and Immediate/Urgent Care facility (if it's not an emergency, go to Immediate/Urgent Care.

This is good advice.

Hope your wife is OK! Maybe she needs a pair of these: https://www.amazon.com/NoCry-Resistant-Gloves-Grip-Dots/dp/B01HPTE2H0/ref=asc_df_B01HPTE2H0

I know Christmas has passed, but maybe she has a birthday coming up...? :bigsmile:

Specifically krazy glue. The chemical make up is nearest to what they use in the emergency room.

Vet Bond (but not just for veterans)

I figure if it's it's good enough for my dog, it's good enough for me

A few years back, my dog smacked another smaller dog that was yelling in her face. (Boxer vs chihuahah) The Chi was rewarded with an eyelid split all the way to the brow ridge. Stupid bulgy eyeballs. Immediately took the dog to the vet, and they said that they’d have to charge me well over $1000 for anesthesia and stitches.

Says I....”what, you don’t have any frickin superglue”???? The vet acted like he’d never heard of the stuff. $120 later, the stupid little shit healed up without even any scar.

I used to feel similar but when my arm tried to come off they were actually nothing short of amazing. It surprised me.


Yeah I guess I'm still unamazed, I miss the old growth forest where it stands now. That was our hiding place when we were on our union break at the rusty tractor. LOL
