Thanks all for your sentiments.  Just got a couple of stitches as they were able to fold the skin back over - unlike most bayonet wounds I've read about.  It's ugly and a little sore but should be fine.  Pride hurt more than anything, I reckon.

I've been fixing up the house in an effort to eventually sell it.  I think I'll take a day off.  Been meaning to go find Genl Nathaniel Lyon's gravesite and birthplace after reading the Wilson's Creek thread here.  It's out in the woods not far from where I live.  I tried this once before but was unsuccessful.  I think I've got a handle on it this time though.  It's really out in the boonies.  As most of you know, Lyon's corpse was left behind on the battlefield of Wilson's Creek/Oak Hill.  I'm not a big fan of his but the story of how his body found it's way back home is interesting - that's history.

Thanks again,
