Well, hubby and I spent 4 hours in the emergency room last night waiting for stitches to be put in hubby's right hand. Two middle fingers got bit very badly. I have to admit i was so furious with my husband, the reason being, i can't count the number of times i have asked him to wear his leather gloves when messing with Narcy, I can't count the number of times i have asked him to be careful when Narcy is very obviously in a pissy mood (hissing, gaping mouth) and the response is always 'i'm being careful'! Once again last night i was sitting at my computer to the side of Narcy's cage while hubby was busy petting Narcy, and from inside the cage i could audibly hear Narcy hiss at him TWICE, and then when hubby went to pull his hand away to leave the cage, Narcy lashed out and got him. The middle finger (which is the one i told hubby he could show Narcy from outside the cage!) has a long, very deep laceration that doc chose to leave open, a deep laceration to the tip of the ring finger, and a flap of skin from knuckle to knuckle that had to be stitched back in place and may wind up dying anyway. Doc said there could be some reconstructive surgery is that happens. The miracle of the whole evening? Right before we left the emergency room, hubby apologized to me, said i was right to be angry with him, and he should have listened to me!! I don't think he is going to try and 'socialize' Narcy anymore. . .the 'nasty iguana' is my baby alone now. And hubby gets a week long 'vacation' from his mechanic job now. . .
