Andy’s Hand

Almost two weeks ago I got a text at work: Just cut the hell out of my game. I’m okay, but I’m in the er for stitches.

Andy cut his thumb and index finger at work on a faulty machine. He ended up with 12 stitches in his thumb and 18 in his index finger. I drove up and got him.

Yes, he's on a lot of pain meds.

Andy ended up missing a fencing tournament, not being able to work for several days (then going on light duty at work) and generally not being able to do much.

Yesterday he got his stitches out. ****Graphic images****

He ain't hitching any rides with that thing.

He has some numbness in the tips of his fingers which is worrisome but hopefully that will clear up soon. I’m so glad he didn’t cut off his fingers.
