Caution! For strong stomachs only. (I'm not joking)

Yesterday night was crazy! First John Mark came over because he said he "broke" his knuckles and wanted my mom to look at them. Well, he hadn't been here 5 minutes before my dad runs in holding his hand and dripping blood. We had got over 6 inches of snow and he was out using our snow blower tractor. He thought he had turned it off ( he is hard of hearing) and was going to clean the built up snow out, so he reached his hand in. Big mistake. Two of his fingers are a mess. It looks like he stuck them down the garbage disposal. We called Mrs. Mallery to come over (she has dealt with these things before). James and Stacia (they had come over for dinner) went to town to get some bandages and stuff. Mrs. and Mr. Mallery soon came over and washed the wound out in warm water and grapefruit extract. We applied myrrh, pan away, tea tree oil, lavender, Roman Chamomile, and olive oil. About every hour we had to change the bandages. There was blood everywhere, even Cleo had to be cleaned off. I'm hesitant to put a picture, I really don't want to get flagged for disturbing images or something. So I think I won't. I'll leave it up to your imagination. Remember when Jaclyn cut her forehead open?It makes that look like a paper cut. If you want a picture I will e-mail you one. Please pray for healing for my dad.

Wow, that sounds painful. (no, a picture wouldn't bother me, but I know it would bother other people). Hope it heals soon.
