Shaun had to change the gauze on his finger today and it wasn't a pretty picture. The gauze was stuck to the 'top' of his wound, where his finger tip used to be. So after a good long soak, some gauze trimming and a temper tantrum, he managed to pull it off, which also meant that the wound opened up. It's gross, it's stomach turning. This picture doesn't do it justice but I didn't think anyone else needed to see the other side of his finger, or lack of it. Not only is he missing almost half his finger nail and the side of that part of his finger, but his pinky is missing a chunk too. What you can't see is the black hunk of skin that was kind of stitched back in place, but I think it won't survive. He said that the meat slicer started on it's own and sucked his hand in. We still don't know if he got a tetanus shot because the dr. stops answering the phone at 4:30 even though they are there till 5 and the records dept. at the hospital answers the phone after 4:30 even though they close at 4. He can't find any puncture marks on his body so we think that despite telling the guy in emerg. that he hasn't had tetanus, possibly since age 11, maybe younger and the guy agreeing that it needed to be done, it's quite possible it wasn't.
