Flesh and blood- (viewer beware!)

Richard is in Young Mens and therefore must help put up flags for certain holidays, such as the 24th of July. I love our country and I love our state and I love our flag, but I am very sad that my husband literally had to sacrifice his flesh and blood while doing flags yesterday. He was using his trailer hitch as a tamping tool and missed the target and came down with all his might on the rebar, only it ended up going straight into his hand. Can you believe this? He had to have 10 stitches on the inside of his hand (it was super deep) and 27 stitches on the outside! I almost threw up when he showed me. So nasty!

HOLY CRAP!!! That totally made me weak in the knees to look at. Poor guy. Wow, I just can't believe that. I hope he's okay.
BTW- did you ever get the check and b-day present? I love you so so much.

It's definitely as bad as you said it would be! OUCH! What a guy to make such a sacrifice! LOL! Hope it's a quick and not-so-painful recovery!

Yeah, my stomach did a nasty turn! That is why I was a PHONE triage nurse all those years!
So sorry Richard, now you can say you have sacrificed a bit of yourself for your country too!

That is truly disgusting. I don't know how my dad does wound care all day. Feeling a little light headed now... :) I have to do flags with the YW--I'm glad we've never had anything like that happen.
