I couldn't have been more than 4 or 5. My mom was making some sort of cooked candy possibly taffy. I remember she was trying to cut it with a sharp knife when the knife slipped and she cut herself with the sharp knife. There was blood everywhere. Dad was at work and we only car at the time (most peopledid back then), so one of us kids ran and got the neighbor who, took her hospital for stitches. I remember my older brother could only think of the ruined candy that we couldn't eat!!

That's some memory. Something similiar happened to me, only it was a large pile of veggies I was chopping for a veggie dish for a party we were having. My husband rushed me to the hospital for stitches. All I remember asking was, "Can someone put the veggies in a ziploc so they ddon't spoil?" I was devastated to learn they had to be thrown out. I had to get 11 stitches and I was lucky I didn't lose my finger. The doc said I should slow down, I told him I didn't have time, I had a party to prepare for. He said now you have no choice.

My mom almost cut off one of her fingers when we were freezing corn one time. I remember how frightened I was. I also remember that she sent word for my sister and me to be sure to finish freezing the corn so it wouldn't ruin. We cut the corn off the cobs, blanched, and packaged 50 pints of corn. That was a lot of work!
