First thing's first, I might as well tell you why she's not here, since I know you must be pretty darn curious. Well, let's just say, she had a little accident.....
Yeah..... it wasn't a pleasent experiance for any member of the family. So, as you all know, my mom is an excellent quilter! She has the best taste in colour, matching up fabrics, finding the perfect patterns, and you really gotta agree with me on that. I mean, look at what she was working on BEFORE the incident!
Beautiful, right? I'm absolutely in love with the moose fabric! It's just really nice to look at and it goes really well with the blue background, I find. I'm not sure exactly what she was gonna do with it, but with her "expertise" and her natural creativeness (is that a word?), I'm sure she found something to do with it all.
So, last night at about, 9 o'clock? We were all home, my sister and Dad were watching T.V., and I was in my room listening to music, when I heard my mom scream. At first I thought "Meh, whatever. Maybe she dropped her fabric in dish water or something." until I paused my music and realize that she was still screaming. Finally I got up and went to check everything out, and I saw several splatters of blood all over the floor and on her cutting board. Now I was freaking out. Then I almost stopped dead in my tracks when I saw, well, I wasn't sure what it was at first, until Lisa pointed out it was the tip of mom's finger. Ew.
(Here's the last of the blood that we found. It looks like she won't need this piece of fabric anymore....)
So Mom was freaking out, holding her hand under running water, and my Dad was like "OK just stop freaking out, sit down, and relax." so my Mom sat down in her chair, in tears, holding just paper towel to her hand. My Dad broke out his work tape and was about to just tape up her finger, but after a while of "Take me to the hospital, please!" "No! You're gonna be fine! Stop freaking out!" my Dad finally gave in and we went into the emergency building at the hospital.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?!?!
Well, the lady at the front desk was all like "Yeah, you can just go walk down there right now and into the emergency room..." So my mom left me there with her health card to handle all of the information and, stuff. As she was walking down the hall the woman at the desk picked up her phone, "Yeah there's a lady in a blue shirt coming your way and it looks like she's uhh, bleeding pretty bad, from her, umm, hand." Even the secretary looked freaked out.
When I walked down to give the nurse all the medical forms, they explained my mom needed to get a tetanus shot. NEEDLES?!?! OK I'M SO OUTTA HERE!!! So I went out and sat in the hallway with my dad.
After a REALLY long time, she came out and told us they apparently gave her T3's? I think that's what they called it. Anyways, the doctor had said she amputated her finger. Ew, gross. Now, she's gonna have a crooked finger and finger nail. The doctor said if he had the other part of her finger, he could have sewn it back on. UNFORTUNATLY,my dad threw it away. Oh well.
ALL QUILTERS! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! PAY MORE ATTENTION OR YOU MAY ACCIDENTALLY AMPUTATE SOMETHING!!!
So, yeah, that's my story. That's all I had to say. :)
Hopefully my mom will be back quilting and blogging by next week? The week after?
Oh well, thanks for listening.
