Had a terrible accident *update*

Don't want to get into the whole traumitizing story but yesterday evening we had an accident in the kitchen that resulted in Calvin getting a terrible foot injury. We rushed him to the ER, after many hours of waiting and then 2 hours of surgery he ended up losing his middle toe. His other toes are a mess but the doctors are pretty confident that they will heal. We will just have to wait to see if the tendons heal back together, if not they will probably be able to go back in in the future to try to fix it or at least make something work. The worst thing is that it was my fault, a stupid careless mistake and Peyton was right there when it happened. She is doing good though. He is doing very well, sleeping a lot, eating well. Just trying to keep him comfortable. The surgeon wants to wait a few days to take the dressing off to see how its healing, so I will update then. In the meantime positive healing thoughts are welcome.

Monday update
The surgeon took off the dressing this morning and he is healing great, some of its already healed together and everything is all pink. the best thing is that he moved his big toe a bit while they were looking at it. Looks like he is going to heal just fine. What a long and awful weekend, we will be heading home soon luckily.
