THIS THUMB HAS A REAL NAIL

Aren't husbands great? Why, just this morning I couldn't decide what to blog about today. By just after noon, my Dear Husband had answered the question for me.

First, the least shocking photo. It's the X-ray of his hand done in the ER shortly after he drove himself to the hospital.

Look! Bob's thumb has TWO nails!

I'd like to say that nail is on top of his thumb, or even just through the flesh, but no. It's through his thumb, and through the bone, too.

By the time I got to the ER, DH's thumb had been numbed, although it hadn't yet begun to hurt, and x-rayed, and he had every nurse, receptionist, and aide behind the counter grinning. He told them he had a hang nail. He tapped out a rhythm on the desk with the embedded object:





And you just never know how handy an extra nail can be until you acquire one!



Other shots (Brace yourself.):


Good boys get stickers & lollipops. He did the placement.



Bob's last word on the subject? "Thumb's up!"

You know Anitra "it's a Bob thing" I had a Bob, of course if you anywhere near him with needles etc. he would turn a pale white and look like he was headed to the floor. Bob, nice work. But please be more careful.

So he's having fun with all this. Hopefully, it doesn't become a habit!

OMG and gadzooks I could have gone the rest of my life without seeing that!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stuff like that freaks me out from Punkin or one of the kids and even your hubs. I'm a woos is all. Glad it's out of his thumb. The closest I ever came to that was to sew my finger on the sewing machine. Ouch I nearly fell out from the shock of it! Like I said. A pure woos.
