I literally lost my breath for a second when the edge of the lid popped through the skin - then stood there watching the blood drip into the sink.

*smooch4U!*

omg! Maybe we will now have semi-matching scars, if when yours heals that little circle of flesh is all *numb* to the touch. Yeowtch.

I think as long as you disinfected the cut thoroughly, you don't have any tetanus to worry about. And, erm...it's kind of a stunningly beautiful picture, if that isn't too morbid to say. *g*

I'm looking forward to that replacing the heat and throbbing. :o(

Once I'd caught my breath and watched blood drip into the kitchen sink, I think I emptied 1/2 a bottle of hydrogen pyroxide over it.
It foamed up real good!

...it's kind of a stunningly beautiful picture...
You would think that - and that's what's so farkin' cool about you!
:snuggle!:

Oh, OWWW! eep! And icky cat food grease/salt in there--*shudders*

When was your last tetanus shot? Because maybe. My doctor made me have one just because, last time I was in, since we couldn't remember when the last one was...

Ow-ow-ow! Neosporin or something very like it and a good stretchy bandaid?

I'm pretty lucky - the can and lid were in with the dishes - I clean my tins before I dump them in the recycling - so it was pretty clean when it bit me.

I think I poured about a gallon of hydrogen pyroxide on it once I could breathe again. I don't haveIt hurts like a son-of-a-gun!!!

...Neosporin or something...
Say! I HAVE an antibiotic ointment in the medicine cabinet. (I learned after a previous cut) Thanks for reminding me!

Allow me to jump in here with my pain-in-the-assness to say that tetanus doesn't mind hygrogen peroxide at all. Get the shot, if you haven't had it within 8-10 yrs! Srsly!

Now my finger hurts, looking at that picture. A++++

Are there symptoms for tetanus? (or whatever it's called if you don't have the shot?) Can you go a few days later (when symptoms start showing up or do you have to get one right away? *meeep!*

see it's like this - I'm really a'scart of doctors

I don't that much about it... except they don't call it "lockjaw" for nothing. :(

Headache, neck and face pain & stiffness, muscle jerking, like that. Just try to get the shot as soon as possible, hey? V. bad. V. v. bad. Usually shows up in about a week.

Oh man! Here's me getting back to a post in record time.
::hides in shame::
Thank you for letting me know what I could have experience.
Luckily and happily, the cut's just about all closed up and is only a little tender if I bump it.

Oh, ow! And ick. You get extra hazardous typing pay.

Of course, the second thing I noticed after your cut is your wonderful celtic knot'ish ring. Hee.

...I passed out from the last one.

::blink:blink:: ::hugs you hard:: You poor thing!!!

I have to admit that I literally stopped breathing for a minute.
But happily, I managed to stay on my feet.
(got distracted by watching the blood run down the drain)

EVIL CAT FOOD TINS!
There's a good title for an action movie!

Ow! Can food can cuts hurt like a mother! A tetnus shot would be a good idea, though those hurt like a mother, too. ;-) *sends you chocolate and a personal assistant to act as your surrogate hand until that one is better*

Oh ouch!

Zoiks! Oh, man! My stomach just did a flip-flop thinking about that.
That must have hurt like a s.o.b.!!! Dude! Under your toe! Brutal.
We should start a cat-food-tin-lid-scar support group! LOL
