While processing this big fella…
Hadn’t I just said that my butchering skills had gotten better….
As I was attempting to cut ribs with my butcher knife (all the while knowing that I should have been using the saw or a cleaver) I almost cut my left index finger off. Ok, so it wasn’t almost off, but it turned out to be pretty bad.
I went to the doctor, got antibiotics to prevent infection but 7 days later I was seen by an orthopedic surgeon because it wasn’t healing right and the end of my finger was curling up from the tendon being cut.
The next day I was in the hospital having surgery.
It’s healing well now, but it’s slow going. It’s not easy doing things with one hand, and some things just can’t be done but I’m so blessed that the Z Man has been taking care of me and everything else that needs to be done.
This very costly experience comes with a lesson, use the proper tools for the job and be more careful!
So, that’s whats been happening (or not happening) on our little homestead.
What’s been happening with you?
Till next time,
