Update on the Swiffer Injury

I had a coworker look at my laceration (she is a retired nurse.) She said I needed to have it looked at especially because I am diabetic. I went in and they cleaned it and put on surgi-strips which are like stitches but in a sticky strip form. I had to get a tetanus shot too :-( They gave me a cane to help get around. I am glad that I went it. They did ask me why I didn't go there last night and told me that I really should have. They prefer to do stitches within 7 hours of the injury. I told them I just wasn't sure that it was serious enough. It should be healed in 5-10 days if all goes well. Until next time...


  1. Ouch! I'm glad you went in.

    Just goes to show you, cleaning is not good for us. lol

    Hope you heal fast, sorry the sadistic swiffer got you.

  2. Indeed! good thing you went in. Keep a close eye on it!


  3. Wow, Katie, no wonder you feel "WTF"! I'm glad you had it taken care of, and you will be back in action in no time.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
