accident



This is Joel's pinkie finger, as you can tell it has pins stuck in all directions at the tip and what seems to be a very shiny fingernail. that's foil to cover the lost nail and stitches and pins to hold together the crushed bone in his finger tip. Gross.


Joel had his finger tip crushed and partially severed nine days ago while working some overtime. He was in a elevator, you know the kind with the steel doors that you pull down yourself? yeah it had a malfunction and the doors can slamming down when he and his co-worker were trying close it up and obv caught Joel's finger in the process.


Joel had to have his finger tip sewn back on with pins put in place for the bone that was crushed that Friday night. & yes he went under for this.


Funny thing is the accident happened that Friday morning and none of the many, many doctors and emergency room doctors he visited wanted to keep the end of his finger but he ended up getting referred to a orthopedic specialist who saved his finger and now after nine days and one amazing surgery later he's starting to get feeling back into his finger and slowly moving it.




on a better note....




Adee is Doing a bit better she was put on a special kind of formula that is called smililac allimentum and its super expensive but has made allot of difference! She is now over twelve pounds and is not near as fussy or gassy as she was just days ago! We are not sure if its a quick fix but I definitely think its a good start! Allimentum formula is a formula for sensitive stomachs that have a hard time breaking down proteins and its hypoallergenic because often times there are food allergy's as well with babies that are prescribed it.

That sucks for Joel! So, you answered my questions on your blog so you don't need to respond to fb question on why adelynn is on formula. We had to buy Enfamil Gentlease for lexi which was way more expensive than similac so I can feel your pain there. But, if it helps it helps.

Joel vs. the elevator! I am SO sorry to hear about that! It's not like you don't have enough on your plate already! Sheesh! Life really stinks sometimes! And hopefully Adelynn will stay well and healthy for you. She is precious. But I bet she's more precious when she's content. :) I love you and am sorry to hear about all of this trouble. May it pass soon...
