Sorry if you're squeamish...don't look any further.
Anyway, I was just returning from my morning run when I heard a few choice uncharacteristic words coming from the roof (trust me, they were choice, but mild for the circumstances). He climbed down, had some ice water and extra-strength Excedrin, and off we headed to the ER to see how they would handle the situation.
First off, he helped them cut his shoe away from around the nail. (I'm sure they appreciated that his feet were clean).
Then the ER doc performed surgery on the shoe leather so he could see the true extent of the injury.
At last the wound was exposed. Yay!! Totally missed the bone and the tendon. Nice piercing, honey. Should we leave it in and call it jewelry?
A nurse then came and irrigated the wound...OK, probably too much info, but note the stream of water coming out of the right side of his knuckle... cooool!
Thanks, honey, for working so hard on the roof...AND... for taking another one for the team so I could practice my texturing technique. You're the best!!
