First Aid Kits

There is an excellent post over at Paratus Familia on First Aid preparedness.  Even the comments are filled with good information.  I have started on our supplies but after reading that post I knew I was missing some important pieces.  So off I went to the store to pick up the things I needed and was feeling pretty proud of myself. 

Then I came home and decided to try out my new mandolin slicer because I had 5 pounds of carrots I wanted to slice and dehydrate.  Next thing you know I'm daydreaming about something and sliced my knuckle clean off!  No skin left, just a gaping wound.  My husband was out of town so I was home alone.  Of course I instantly thought of my first aid kit.  Luckily I had a good supply of sterile gauze and tape.  It was not a "fun" adventure, but it definitely was an adventure! 

So, even if you think you have your first aid supply all set, I encourage you to jump on over to Paratus Familia and read that post!  You never know when you will need some first aid in a hurry.

Thanks for stopping by and stay safe!
