My wife.... yes... Rima.....
As we all know all she cares about is cakes, kueh, cookies, purees, etc etc.
I don't know if it was the Backyardigan song in her head or if it was her Backyardigan-like movements in the kitchen... but she managed to injure herself quite badly today.
While cleaning up after doing fondant on a dummy cake for one of her orders, her arms swung around and hit her long bladed knife.. The knife slid down the counter, pointed end downwards and managed to scrape along her shin. (If I wasn't graphic enough: The knife is brand new). As luck might have it, the pointy end did not do any damage, but the blade did cut a 5cm long gash on her shin, blood gushing out, soaked towels, down to the bone...
Bottom line: Frantic calls to husband and sisters, husband ran out of a meeting, raced home, performed first aid, dropped off Sonia at Grand-ma, took Rima to the ER and 2 1/2 hours later she left with 8 stitches.
She can walk and is generally ok, but seems that the local anesthetic is wearing off and the stitches are starting to hurt. Donations can be sent to..... just kidding..
Baby, get well soon.... I have run out of chocolate chips for my office coffee break... xxx (sorry no pics guys, the camera kept slipping out of my hands with all that blood :) hehehe
