As if getting sprayed in the eye with a power washer wasn't enough, poor Anderson has another PSA to bring everyone today:
'If your big brother wants to hit your finger with a rock, DO NOT LET HIM! HE MAY HIT YOUR FINGERNAIL! It will hurt really bad and you may lose your nail (like me). OUCHIE!'
We don't even know how exactly it happened but on Sunday, while we were trying to get our rental house cleaned up for new tenants, Jack hit Andy on the finger with a rock. It doesn't seem as if it was deliberately done to hurt him, I think they were looking for bugs or possibly on another search for Bigfoot (lol), although he must have hit pretty hard to hurt his nail too. Andy, ever the tough guy, never even mentioned that it happened until yesterday morning when I was dropping him off at daycare. The nail on his right index finger was barely still attached. yikes! I got a bandaid from daycare and covered his nail/finger until I could figure out what to do. By the time he came home last night he had tore the nail completely off. I called the Dr, who (thankfully) said he will be fine but that it might take up to 6 months for his nail to grow back in. We are to keep an eye on it and watch for infection. ugh. I've been trying to keep it bandaged but so far today we've had to rewrap it 6 times. ;)
this poor kid is going to be tough as nails when he grows up! I don't think he ever stops smiling either. He's had quite a few mishaps in his young 4 years (note the remnants of a slice across his forehead courtesy of his peacock) but always has a smile to share. :)
