Jovana's New Tat

It all started out friendly enough. Jovana made a pesto salad dressing for Tymon's Father's Day dinner. We loved it...but it's strong virtues were lost on the boys. They barely choked it down.

About 10:30 pm, Jovana was unloading the dishwasher and trying to attach the glass blender with it's cleaned blade. It slipped. Hit the granite counter top as she was catching it. And she watched a huge piece of glass slice her finger open.

 Remember the guys in high school gym class that used to yell stuff like, "Sacrifice your body for the game," when they wanted you to dive for the ball?  Yeah, well that's how serious Jovana is about a clean sink. It doesn't matter what the cost is. The dishes will be done.

We live about 3 minutes away from the hospital and were the only ones in the ER when we arrived. They got us right in and the doctor was stitching up Jovana's hand in no time. I mean seriously, how often can you be in and out of the ER in an hour? That was us last night.

And Jovana has a new "tattoo". Now for sure she'll never forget her name. Or the doctor who was an exchange student in college. He went back to Ecuador to visit his host family for a couple of weeks, ended up meeting a girl and staying a year. They are now married and living here. He was such an easy going doctor and personable.

  1. Oh Wow, that looks really Painful!! Luckily it's in the form of J:-) Did I ever tell you the time I dropped a tool on my hand and it cut me in the shape of a V? Sure enough it was Valentines day and I was dateless that year. My little accident was a sharp reminder of that.

  2. Ha ha ha. Valentine's Day. Nice.

  3. That is some awesome dedication to having a clean sink! Ouch!

    My husband has a scar on his finger from a broken glass that happened while he was washing it. It did not require stitches, however. It sliced a chunk out of his finger.

  4. I hope you heal quickly Jovana.

  5. Oh man, those pictures gave me chills. Ouch!! Poor Jovana. Seriously looks painful.
