LOL@Soxxy! I can hardly type with two hands so good luck to you. Make sure no vampires are around. :D

Guess it depends on how deep the cut is - if you can see flesh inside, I generally get someone to look at it. I still have a scar and slight nerve damage from getting a fingertip sliced in a door 15 years ago.

Good luck with it.

Oh my goodness- I'm so sorry! I'd keep applying pressure and make sure it stays clean. Do you have a nurse line you can call? Might be worth calling to ask at what point should you seek medical attention. (ie- still bleeding in a few hours, can see tendon (yes!), etc)



As for the skate blades- the trick is to grab the part where the blade attaches to the boot. And to practice with gloves on until you get it right! I've definetly seen a few girls slice their hands open.

Ouch! I cut my finger yesterday, too, when a glass broke in my hand while I was washing it. Pressure and a clean bandage. I'm not using that finger, either... Hope you heal quickly!
