Beware The Hair Tourniquet!

Yep, you read that right. My darling friend, Jawdy discovered this nasty little thing. Read his post but the short version is this.... His daughter had a meltdown, was crying and they were not able to console her and they couldn't figure out why she was so upset. Turns out a hair got into her sock and twisted itself around two of her toes. The hair cut into the poor baby's skin but luckily Jawdy & his lovely wife (~waving at Deb~) were able to remove it. A coworker of Jawdy's wasn't so lucky and ended up in the ER having it professionally removed from his little one's toe. So glad I chopped all of my hair off! Now... time to get the cats groomed! ~here kitty kitty kitty~


  1. I remember when X was going through his crying jags between is 2nd and 3rd month, that I was constantly stripping him down looking for a stray hair, a sliver, a tag, anything as someone wisely tipped me off on this potential problem.

  2. Heh, I remember writing this up for ePregnancy sometime during the first year they were publishing! I'd never heard of it until I found it in some medical journal!
