    Got the stitches out Friday. All healed up.

    I never put a bandage or any kind of salve on it, which kinda freaked my wife out.

    Covering it is often not the best idea if it keeps it wet from tissue leakage.

    That is pretty ugly....can't believe they didn't do something to close that up. Hope you have enough beer to hold you over.

    superficial laceration. in other word not deep enough to require stitches. Pain is likely more from impact- bruising looks to be fairly deep. or perhaps you are on blood thinners which makes look worse than it really is.

    The reason we get hurt as old timers is because weíre doing things the way we used to do it and we canít think as fast as we used to and the reflexes arenít as quick as they used to be.

    The problems for we old fellows are many: bifocals may cause us to miss a step, some have numb feet (no feedback for balance), we are weaker that before but gravity is just as powerful as ever and it waits for us to slip. When we fall we may not have enough neck strength to keep our head from hitting that curb (killed a friend of mine recently). Get a walking stick, hold onto hand rails on the stairs, Climb into that deer stand like a sloth, take your time making the shot and climb down carefully. Enjoy every day...

    Over 70, even breaking wind comes with risks.

    Wow is all I can say. I guess you should be VERY thankful someone was near to drive you or it was probably 911...
