Curtis cut off his fingers!
So we had a fun experience on Friday. While Curtis was working on the table saw, the piece of wood he was cutting got caught and pulled his hand in the blade. He cut off his left index and his thumb. The index finger is not fixable but the thumb is. As you can see in the x-ray, his finger was cut long ways loosing most of his knuckle making impossible to ever use again. The thumb he cut at the base but they said it was going to be okay. They are amputating the finger and fixing the thumb Monday. He is doing surprisingly good. Actually I think he's being a little morbidly happy. He doesn't even seem to care he is going to only have 9 fingers. I am probably doing worse then him. After talking to the surgeon I am doing much better. The ward and friends and family are being so supportive. You can see the love people have for him and our family.
