We had another one of those calls last week.
This one was from Matt – 700 miles away in Colorado.
“Hey Dad – do you know when I had my last tetanus shot?”
We discovered that he was in the emergency room after having a run-in with a chop saw.
Thankfully he was wearing a good pair of leather gloves at the time and only needed 5 stitches to sew up the massive cut.
He was a breath away from cutting majoring nerves, blood vessels and important digits.
I wonder if there’s a guardian angel out there with part of his wing missing?
He’ll have a wicked scar on his hand the rest of his life – but it will serve as a reminder of a near disaster averted.
So thankful today. So very, very thankful.
And yes – I made sure he had another pair of leather gloves!
