my.poor.man.

so you prayer warriors out there can say a few for my husband. he was moving bulls around this morning...from farm to farm...so they can do their "thing" you know...and came across an accident scene on rt. 10. this is a very busy road that goes thru a section of wooded area...regardless he said there were people all over the place. so...he stopped...with the stock trailer and all (bulls were already unloaded :) ) to see if he could help. turns out a woman had hit a deer with her car, and she was concerned about the deer, because it had been injuted pretty badly. those of you who know my husband, know that he enjoys hunting and  has a million and one guns and wouldn't you know didn't have one on him? :) so...he decided the best idea would be to pick up the deer (which was still alive, but not doing well) and load it into the stock trailer, and take him to a more quiet place to rest...

wouldn't you know as he was loading it, it skitzed a little bit, and kicked his right middle finger ~wide~ open...down to the bone. YUCK. so...the story goes on and on...but he spent 3 hours at the doctors getting some stitches, so now we pray that he can heed the doctors instructions, and that his finger has no ill effects from this injury. it could be a little tricky as it is around his knuckle, but there was thankfully no tendon severing.

you know sometimes i complain to him that i feel "cheated" a bit, because it feels like we  don't see him a whole lot...usually because everyone else does. :) he would do anything for anyone, and this is a prime example of how he lives his life. he serves others...sometimes i am offended it is not me and my family...but that is *my* issue...i am thankful for a God believing husband who works very hard providing for us, and spends time helping others, even when it isn't convenient for him or me. :)

needless to say i didn't get to the store today, but i did finish painting my *new* office (can you imagine the disasterous shape my house is even in? with four kids who basically self entertained just about the entire day...so i could get this painting done?)  and even sold a puppy...hopefully another tomorrow. here's to a better rest of the weekend. and cleaning up the house tomorrow because i am beat and going right to bed. cheers. ~mk~

Poor guy! Hope that it heals quickly! Scott told me to ask if he was trying to "help out" or stock the freezer? :)

jodi...

he really was just trying to help. he had no idea a deer was involved when he stopped. the rest of the story is that a friend, walking our of another friends close by woods, took care of stocking "his" freezer as matt had to get out of there. we really don't care for deer meat anyway...and are trying to choke down the rest of his vension from last year...so that part worked out great! :) mis.

I'll pass that on to Scott:) Venison is way down on my list of favorite foods too! Good luck helping him follow the doctor's instructions and praying for healing!

can i say how much i miss you....i want to pop down & see your new room!!!

if i were matt's dr. i think i would prescribe a full arm cast for that finger....just so it can rest...cause....i'm not sure if it's even possible for matt not to use it. =)

i hope he is doing better! btw, thanks for the bible for Francesca. I was going to try to locate mine from when I was younger but keep forgetting to ask my mom if she has it.
