Wounded Pinky + Father’s Day

Cathey and I spent a few days last week with our daughter’s family in Tennessee helping with one of the wounded. Cash our youngest grandchild almost lost his pinky when his older brother Bryson accidentally close a heavy glass door on his little hand. The hall door leads to all the children’s bedrooms. Bryson didn’t notice Cash had his little fingers in the door opening. Jenny our daughter sent us a text telling us they were in the emergency room getting his pinky snitched. The procedure took 10 snitches extremely painful for Cash who went into a rage during the procedure. B.T. and Jenny were beside themselves to see their little one in such grief. Happy to report that Cash will be getting the snitches out in a couple of weeks and he will be able to play again like a normal 4 year old.
One happy little boy with one of the nurses at the emergency room----notice the Popsicle.
While we were there I decided take Bryson and Laelyn to Harvey Park one of their favorites. The reason they like this park so well is the beautiful creek that flows close to the playground. The kids love to wade in the creeks shallow waters. Sorry we had to sneak off without Cash but his Mom didn’t want him to get his bandage wet in the creek water.
Bryson and Laelyn spent quite a while using their Dollar Tree nets trying to net some of the small minnows that call this creek their home.
This tiny little minnow along with a few mosquitos’ bites were the catch of the day, which was enough fun to satisfy Bryson, Laelyn and Pops.
 
Hope all you Dad’s and Grandpa’s have a wonderful Father’s Day!!!

Oh, poor little guy! Hope he recovers quickly. I've had that done to me when I was a kid. Meanwhile, good for gramps to get the rest of the kids out. Happy Father's Day Bill!

He's a champ, all it took was candy and a good nurse to bring the smile back. :) Happy Fadders day!
