MEN!!!!

SO I SLEPT IN THIS MORNING TILL ABOUT 9;30AM. IVE BEEN HAVING TERRIBLE PAIN IN MY BACK AND AS SOON AS I LAY DOWN I START GETTING SPASAMS. I HAD SPENT THE FEW NIGHT BEFORE LAST CRYING MOST OF THE NIGHT.

SO OK I GET UP LATE THIS MORNING, AND MR GAB GOES TO THE BASEMENT.......BUT LET ME BACK UP A MINUTE.......

LAST NIGHT WE WERE IN BED AND MR GAB ASKED OUR 15 YR OLD GRANDSON TO PUT THE CLOTHES FROM THE WASHER TO THE DRYER START THEM AND MAKE SURE HE SHUTS OFF THE ALARM. A FEW MINUTES LATER HE COMES UP STAIRS AND ASKS GRANDPA IF ITS BAD THAT HE DROPPED A SCREWDRIVER DOWN INTO THE LINT TRAP. GRANDPA SAYS HOW THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT? GRANDSON SAYS IT WAS ON TOP AND WHEN HE SET BASKET ON TOP WHILE HE CLEANED OUT TRAP THE SCREWDRIVER FELL IN. SO GRANDPA SAYS LEAVE IT TILL MORNING.

OK NOW............
SO GRANDPA GOES TO THE BASEMENT THIS MORNING AND STARTS WORKING ON GETTING OUT THE SCREWDRIVER. PRETTY SOON HE'S YELLING COME OPEN THE DOOR. I SENT OUR 11 YEAR OLD GRANDSON WHO HAS BEEN HOME A FEW DAYS TO OPEN THE DOOR. HE COMES BACK AND TELLS ME NOT TO GO OUT THERE. PRETTY SOON I HEAR MR GAB TELLING ME I NEEDED TO TAKE HIM TO URGENT CARE, I ASKED WHY HE TELLS ME THAT HE RIPED A BIG HOLE INTO HIS PINKY FINGER. I SAID CANT GO TO URGENT CARE GOTTA GO TO EMERGENCY ROOM.
NOW LET ME SAY IT WAS SNOWING OUT AND SLIPPERY.
I CALLED DAUGHTER TO COME GET HER KIDS CAUSE I NEEDED TO TAKE HER DAD TO THE HOSPITAL. AS SOON AS SHE GOT HERE WE LEFT. I DONT THINK I EVER GOT UP OVER 25MPH. IN FACT FOR ABOUT 3 MILES I FOLLOWED A SNOWPLOW.
GOT MR GAB TO HOSPITAL, THEY STARTED DOING THEIR STUFF AND I LOST IT. I STARTED TO CRY SO MUCH I DIDNT KNOW IF I'D STOP.
YOU SEE IM THE ONE USUALLY IN THE BED AND MR GAB IS SITTING IN THE CHAIR WAITING FOR THEM TO "FIX" ME.
IN A COUPLE OF HOURS DAUGHTER HAD TO DROP BOYS OFF WITH ME SO I WENT TO THE WAITING AREA WITH THEM. IT WAS PROBABLY A GOOD IDEA THAT I WASNT IN THERE WHEN THEY FINALLY GOT BACK TO HIM,(A AMBALANCE HAD COME IN SO WE HAD TO WAIT A BIT)
THEY PUT 14 STITCHES INTO HIS PINKY...NOW THE SKIN HAD BEEN HANGING WHEN WE CAME IN AND WHEN THEY WASHED HIS FINGER TO SEE WHAT WAS WHAT IT FELL OFF. BUT MR GAB SAID THEY TOOK THAT SKIN AND STITCHED IT BACK ON.
WHEN WE GOT HOME HE WENT DOWN AND FINISHED THE DRYER AND OF COURSE HE COMES BACK UP BLEEDING. WE WRAPPED IT UP WITH A HANKY TIED IT TIGHT.
HOPING IT WOULD STOP SO WE DIDNT HAVE TO MAKE A RETURN TRIP.
THEY HAD TO CHECK THE TENDONS TO MAKE SURE NOTHING WAS DAMAGED. LUCKLY HE SEEMED TO SCRAP RIGHT DOWN THE OUTTER EDGE OF THE FINGER BUT YET IT WENT IN DEEP.
WHILE WE WERE THERE THEY STARTED US FILLING OUT PAPERS FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANTS.
SO ITS BEEN A LONG DAY. AND MR GAB SAYS THE NOVACAINE HAS WORN OFF SO HE'S UNHAPPY.
