My poor poor man..

Because we haven’t been through enough, because December alone is not hard enough.
Dave is in the hospital, he is recovering from reconstructive surgery. He lost 3 fingers today, his index to the first knuckle and the next two fingers below the second knuckle. Luckily it looks like they managed to get them back on and get good blood flowing so they should be ok. They are ok now, let’s just hope they stay that way.
He is looking at some long term physiotherapy and some hefty recovery time. I spent 12 hours with him today in the hospital. He cut them on a table saw on the job site. His wedding ring is a gonner, they had to cut it off of him. 

I am exausted and off to sleep. I am supposed to be at my christmas staff party right now. We both got new fancy outfits and all. At least we can return the clothes, Dave’s fingers didn’t come with a receipt or warranty.  Please keep Dave in your prayers, our small family has been through so much already, he just has to be granted an easy recovery with intact fingers.

When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  2. Oh my fucking G-d. ((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))
    (Per your above comment exchange: I do tarot readings, if you want one, I can do one for you, no charge. Just email me: alexisyael @ gmail dot com and be specific about your question. It may take me a few days to get to it/ write it out, but I’ll try to get ya a gist ASAP. For what it’s worth, a lot of random, awful shit seems to be happening in LJ land right now.)

  3. Holy motherfucking shit, Jayme.
    I am just in shock right now, reading this!!!!
    What a horrible month, as if it couldn’t get harder, now this!
    Oyyyy, I am praying for him and his fingers ❤

    • Thank you. I am in shock myself, it’s nuts.
      I am glad his fingers seem to be doing ok and just praying he can find healing and peace. I lit a candle for him for Carmenta, the Roman Goddess of healing and said a little prayer and left the candle burning at his bedside, I pray someone will have merci on this poor man. Sigh!

  4. Oh man. Poor Dave. I hope everything goes alright for him in keeping his fingers and the recovery rehab.

  5. Holy crap! I’m glad they were able to reattach and hopefully he’ll recover quickly. I’ll be thinking of you two!!

  6. That is just terrible.
    I am also thinking of you & Dave and praying for a full and quick recovery.
    Take care.

  7. Wow…that’s horrible.
    Wishing him a quick and easy recovery.

    HOLY SHIT WHAT?????? Damn it Jaime. Is he ok? Really really ok? Is he going to be able to work? Build or cook again?? HOLY SHIT, It’s too early now, but I”ll try to get hold of you in a bit, I need to hear from you that he’s ok…..
    love you both too much to not worry…..

  9. omg that’s horrible, I hope he’s ok. 😦
    Have you ever considered going to a psychic? I don’t believe in them, but was having a really tough time last year as was a friend of mine, we were so stuck we had like no options left, so we figured whatever, everything already is really horrible, a psychic can’t make it any worse, so let’s go see. I went in there as the biggest skeptic in the world, and came out of there feeling amazing. She knew things that no one else could know, things I didn’t mention, talk about out, or bring up. She knew I was engaged, I didn’t tell her or wear my ring, she knew insane things about my parents, from my childhood, that I barely remembered, nor did I ever even mention my parents.
    Anyway, long story short… every since we went to her, we feel so much better. She can tell you why bad things are happening, and what to do about it.
    If I were you, i’d go see one, get a lot of recommendations first, like find a good one. Spend hte 20 bucks, and see what happens? You may feel better knowing that maybe this shitty streak is coming to an end, or how to end it, or why it’s happening?

    • I have considered it, there is one in Moncton that I hear is very good, may go see her when I am there over new years. It would be nice to know what is up, cripes.

  10. Thankfully they were able to reattach.
    Thinking of you both.

  11. HOLY CRAP. Thank god they were able to reattach. I’m so shocked I feel like just typing a bunch of swear words. Wow, I hope this all turns out okay. I’ll be thinking of you guys.

    • thanks.
      seems to be the story of my life, when things are calm, it’s temporary, soon things get thrown into chaos again. I just keep praying for downtime, a little less suffering. Poor Dave.

  12. omg!!! how scary and painful 😦 what a month, huh? *hugs* and prayers.

  13. omg, scary! i hope everything turns out okay!

  14. Oh my goodness Jaime, I’m so sorry. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers and sending positive healing energy. Hope you have a good solid sleep tonight dear. *hugs to the both of you*

    • Thank you, got seven hours cuddled up to the pup. I am headed to the showers and back out again. Have to go locate our car, which was left at the job sight. Check in on Dave, then I have an uncle in town who drove 3 hours to put in our woodstove for us, so I have help him with that and be back and forth to the hospital.
