Blood, Sweat and Tears

Each night Hubs works diligently on finishing out our basement. He measures wood. He cuts wood. He nails wood. Sometimes he has to remove pieces of wood adorned with nails.

From his feet.

As he hammered away this evening, he chose the preferred footwear of retarded contractors everywhere; flip flops. This resulted in him, surprise surprise, stepping on a nail.

Washing his foot in the bathtub.

Here's a shot of the wound.. I told him we should go to the doctor for a tetanus shot. But no. He assured me his cleaning of it would be sufficient.
(Because he went to medical school and all.)
The biggest problem is, we have no peroxide in the house. No worries, he found a completely acceptable substitute.

Claire's Ear Care Antiseptic. For third graders with infected ear holes. I had no idea this was the preferred way to clean nasty flesh wounds safely.

The offending nail that did the damage. But the best part is yet to come...

Here's Hubs 5 minutes after cleaning the hole in his foot. Still in his flip flops. Thankfully we have lots of Claire's top shelf antiseptic still left over, should things go awry again.

Don't worry, Dr. Schreiner I'm sure would approve. Oh wait, no, he's telling me it's probably just saline. And Dr. Schreiner says he "absolutely needs to get a tetnus shot". uhhh...uh oh.
