Dave’s hand update
So Dave saw the plastic surgeon today. He got a glimpse of his hand as they unwrapped it and had a look at how things are healing.
Good News= He will get to keep all his fingers.
Because he was injured on the job, he will get Worker’s Compensation
Bad News= They are much worse then we realised, he has 6 pins in the knuckles of his middle and ring fingers. The pins won’t come out for at least 6 weeks, and then we are looking at 4 more weeks until the cast can be completely removed. They told him he could be off work for 6 months and then only back on limited duties due to resticted range of motion.
Workers compensation is only going to give him $800 a month, 1/4 his actual wages. There is no way we can live off that so we are going to have to find a way to earn some more cash while he is off. Maybe I will have to get a second part time job, we will see.
Anyhow, here is the evil broken hand.
