Yep, that is right, Corey and I made our first trip to the ER as a married couple and you bet it would be the week of Christmas!! Lets just say "that's UnBeLiEvEaBlE" My dear husband was trying to be so great and snow blow our drive way. Well the snow blower is a little bit older and because of the rain it got clogged. So Corey put the blower in neutral, (first mistake of not just turning it off) got a pair of pliers and then went to work chopping at the blower. Well as husband is working the blower decides to put itself into gear flinging and pushing the pliers right up through the palm of his hand. Does that stop Corey??.....no he decides to go down and back just one more time when he gets back into the light he notices that it's probably not a good thing to be able to see all of your muscles and tendons in your hand. So I hear him come in the house and with a few choice words that won't be said........ he calmly walks into the bedroom and says "babe can you take me to the hospital" I do have to say that I am extremely proud of myself because I didn't freak out at all (okay so inside I was dying but that is okay, alright and I did cry on the way home but can you blame me??). I of course am in my sweats so i grab my boots put them on and say "okay" Needless to say we were the only ones in the ER but were there for a good 2 solid hours.....once again unbelieveable.....they put 14 stitches 4 or 5 of which are internal, the rest on the outside. I have never seen anything so deep in my entire life and the Dr. was extremely impressed as well. We are scheduled to go so a plastic surgeon/hand specialist tomorrow to make sure there is no nerve or tendon damage. What a wonderful Christmas for the both of us and thank heavens for health insurance. I will say that I am truly grateful that it was just his hand as bad as it sounds but it could have been a lot worse. I think that Corey has definitely learned his lesson, and he promised me driving home that he will never do that again and he will turn the blower off first!!
