Summer Casualties

Summer has arrived with a vengeance it seems, if this past weekend is any indication.

One gentleman was setting up lawn chairs in the backyard for a BBQ and somehow managed to receive a deep and painful-looking inch and a half gash along his thumb.  Another, more serious set of lacs were caused by a malicious convertible top that left several cuts requiring stitches.  Throw in a couple facial lacerations from softball and bicycle injuries and we were down several suture sets by the end of the weekend.

The worst, however, was a poor young guy who made the mistake of reaching too close to the lawnmower, and ended up having to lose the tips to two of his fingers.

Have fun out there, but remember safety first!
