Day one of having the new land and we had an accident. The hubs had to work Saturday and when he came home he was going to shoot his guns. I was going to shoot with him since all the girls were going to be gone. Well plans changed when grandpa showed up with a chainsaw. They went to work clearing vines and limbs. We are trying to get a path cleared to put up a fence and they have been clearing our land for four years so this isn't anything new. Anyways I was feeding the chickens when the hubs hobble runs by saying "my leg my leg". I put everything down and by the time I got to the porch he had looked at it and decided we needed to go. He had cut his leg with the chainsaw so deep it nicked his bone. I got him to the ER in good time and they took their sweet time working on him. Six hours later he was all stitched up inside and out and we were able to go home. I set my alarm for every four hours to wake him up to take pain meds. So far the pain is tolerable and he's sleeping ALOT.
I tend to analyze everything to find what lessons are to be learned or the reasons things happen but I've been so worried for my husband that I haven't thought much about it. Soon I will be worried about other things. He's not going to be able to work for a while. He's not going to be able to drive. He's not going to be able to help me around here. We are kind of on hold until he heals. I realized today how much I need him. How quick he is to do little things for me when I ask. How nice it is just to have him running around in the yard or able to run an errand. I need him everyday and now he needs me. Hopefully I will be a good nurse and he will heal quickly ♥
