WARNING I AM BLOGGING AN ACCIDENT - THERE WILL BE A PHOTO OF THE WOUND. SKIP THIS POST IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE IT.
|Starting with this photo so FB will grab it |
for a preview rather than the wound.
Michael was over at KC's cutting trees today when I got a call from him.
"I need you to bring a compress and get over here now."
"Get over here now. Bring a compress."
Allie and I ran over. Michael had "tagged" himself with the chainsaw.
This is the day I discovered one can go 90mph on local highways and "no passing" is just a suggestion. I mentioned to Michael I was going to get a ticket and he said, "Good. They'll give you an escort."
We headed to the ER for stitches. They thought he may need surgery, but a CAT scan revealed his knee cap had stopped the blade and protected his ligaments and tendons from damage.
Yes, he has chaps. Now he wears them.
