    When you have 7 kids, it becomes a common occurance.

    DS#4... son of Mahonri on BYC decided to cut of the tip of his right index finger (he's left handed)

    4 hours and 6 sutures later it's but back on but it was pretty gross. I hope it heals and doesn't require further surgery.

    And I'm booked solid tomorrow... praying I can get some sleep.

    I hope he's going to be okay?! It never ends with kids, does it? Having a large family like you do, I know what you're going through. Hope you can get some sleep, and things calm down. [​IMG] [​IMG]:fl

    I hear you Mahonri, my four daughters seem to constantly keep us in the ER as well, so it's not limited to sons! I hope you can at least get enough sleep to make it through your day. It's not like you can phone your job in, unfortunately!

    Oh boy do I ever know that feeling, my middle son once jumped up and got his finger caught on a nail and took the finger half off,..it's so distressing, and the emergency room rarely makes you feel better about the whole lot.
    Wishing him a speedy recovery...
