Monday Joel cut his right index finger on a table saw, the same hand and saw he cut his thumb on last year. This time he cut through a tendon and into the bone, so it's been a much more painful and involved injury. He is having surgery today at 1:30 to repair the tendon. He isn't supposed to use it again for 6-8 weeks! Poor guy. Needless to say, it's been a draining week. Joel has been in a lot of pain, and isn't able to help out with Elijah as much, so that's been hard too. We are glad that after today he can start to recover, but the doctor said that will be a process too. Not only can he not use the finger for a while, but he'll have to go through physical therapy too. I feel bad for him. He doesn't like to sit at home all day and not be able to work on the house or help me out. We'll see how the next few weeks go. You can be praying for his surgery and recovery!
