The Hubby and a friend went fishing on Friday. It was a windy day....not ideal for being in a small boat on a lake. About mid afternoon, they decided to stop battling the wind and head home. He was on the dock while they were getting the boat out of the water and onto the trailer. Somehow, his right thumb got between the boat and the dock....jerking his nail out and almost completely severing the end of his thumb. I met him at the emergency room and they sewed it back together. I took pictures, mainly because I knew our children would be interested, but he made sure I wasn't planning to post them here. :-) It did look bad.....real bad!
Our daughter, the medical assistant, has been his wound care provider......
With pain meds and tender loving care, he is doing fine. So grateful that he had someone with him to take care of things and that he has his own personal "nurse"!
