And the Worst Wife of the Year goes too.....


ME!!!!! On Saturday night, my so helpful husband helped me unload the Pathfinder after bringing some stuff home for the kids from my Mom and Dad. How did I repay him? By shutting his hand in the Pathfinder's tailgate....causing this....










He has a carpel/metacarpel dislocation. Basically it means that he torn the bone for his pinky out of the wrist and it got shoved under his ring finger. See XRAY picture below. The pen marks are where the bone is supposed to be sitting. Yeah, not good. He has surgery scheduled for Monday. They will hang his hand with weights and pop the joint back into place. they will then put in a screw from the outside of his hand through the bone to hold it in place while the ligaments scar down. Once that has been done (approx 4 weeks) they will remove the screw. So he's in the Splint for the next 4-6 weeks. Yep, I feel pretty bad about this one! Send your prayers for a quick recover for him!
