Only a few stitches Topa. And I cleaned it very well, even soaked the thread in alcohol (not the drinking kind). And I kept a close eye on it for signs of infection. If there was any reddening or swelling in the following days, I would have gone to a doctor.

It’s really not difficult to do your own stitches if you have a strong stomach (my wife refused to watch) and can grit your teeth long enough. I’m not a “tough guy” or anything, I just would rather take ten of fifteen minutes of self inflicted pain over the kind of pain the emergency room bill would have inflicted!

Maybe I’ll show how to do stitches on my woodworking show some time. Bet that would drive the critics around here nuts!
