Well..it happened. I got a nasty cold. Bad enough that I am taking tomorrow off from childcare. UGH. I have plans for the weekend so I’m hoping this passes soon. The headache that I’m having with it is a doozy.
I thought I’d pop in and share some family news….some that’s not so good. My nephew Logan had a bad accident at work. He works at a company that makes pallets.
Here he is with his family. Logan is on the far left. For those of you who know my family. Logan is my brother Jay’s youngest son.
Growing up, at family get togethers, Logan and our son Buck always hung out together as they are close in age.
The accident involved a machine..and gloves…Logan getting caught in the machine and him ending up losing the three middle fingers on his dominant hand leaving him with a thumb and pinkie.
They tried to reattach one of the fingers in the ring finger position and did, but later had to go in and take that reattached finger off. He’ll be left with just the thumb and pinkie.
He’s got a long way to go to get home including another surgery for skin grafting.
They started a GoFundMe page for him and the family. Everyone is using up their leave time, staying in Rochester and having to eat out. As I well know, there are so many costs to hospitalization that aren’t covered.
If you want to check out the GoFundMe page, you can find it here. If you have good thoughts to send or prayers to offer, that would be so nice.
I’m off to blow my sore nose again. I’m slowly working on the latest mystery clue. I’m at a snail’s pace today. This cold is kicked in on high gear at about noon today and has me so miserable. Rosie isn’t into couch sitting so I pulled the Featherweight out and am putzing at the kitchen table. We are on our FIRST day with no accidents. FINALLY!!
We got snow here and it’s been a terrible distraction for her. She gets outside and turns into a wild pup..forgetting what she’s out there to do.
I’ll catch you tomorrow…
