Well, Shane had a horrific event occur this weekend... he cut his finger off (well, almost) while using a table saw (that he has used hundreds of times) to create our front porch. It was still barely attached by a shred of bone and some skin. It was a mad dash to the ER, all of us scared to death, and Shane's heart breaking at the thought of not being able to play the guitar. I'll spare you all the details, but WOW, it was horrible. (At first I thought I was going to be looking for the finger on the ground!) We are so thankful, really, because it could have been much worse. The doctor is optimistic that it will mend - so now he is supposed to be resting after they sewed it back on to hopefully keep his finger!

OWWWW...good thing you are a nurse, right? Did your skills kick in?? I'll pray for a regeneration of the tissues to the finger for you :)
