Ouch!

= trip to ER

Not the smartest thing I have done lately, but all in all it could have been worse. Saturday I was making a sweet potato casserole at the Roost, while the rest of the fam was out hunting.  I was cleaning out the immersion blender,  and I accidentally hit the on button. NOT good when your pointer finger is still inside the blade attachment. I called mom, calmly asked her to tell James I needed him immediately to take a look at my finger. I couldn't really tell how bad it was, and the more I tried the more light-headed I became. My sweet husband ran off the quail hunt (which I heard was a big sacrifice bc the birds were flying great), and took me into Selma to the ER. Several sutures and a fractured finger later, I am ok. I didn't nick the tendon and it is my left hand, so could have been worse. Another positive is that my husband is being a wonderful nurse. So prayers for a speedy healing and no infection are welcome! A more fun post on the Russell fam Christmas to follow....

Oh Rayne! You poor thing! Thank the Lord it wasn't worse. We'll be praying for quick recovery...finger injuries aren't the best for a dentist, huh??

Oh my goodness! I think between being pregnant and being injured, you pretty much have a free pass to do nothing and have everyone wait on you hand and foot! :) Merry Christmas!

I am sad that I could not participate in the suturing of your finger....considering you are my dentist.
