So, for those of you who know me well, you know that I have a reputation for getting hurt.
Its not a full year until I spend time in the hospital, it seems!

BUT all that has changed since I met Andrew!
I have not spent 1 night in the hospital!
Today he proved, once again, that the "I get hurt" reputation belongs firmly on his head!

The situation involved one Andrew, one 2 x 4 piece of wood, one rope and one tree branch.
2 x 4 attached to rope gets thrown over branch and yanked down by Andrew.
Yanked 2 x 4 hits Andrew squarely in the head.
By the time I got home (I was out thrifting!), he was laying on the couch, blood dried and face white.
I had to convince him that, yes, in fact, you DO need to go get this looked at!
All is well now, the doctor stitched him up (but not before shaving a patch of Andrews golden locks!) and he is resting nicely.

It was hard to see him in pain, to see his blood and know that it hurts.
But he is tough, he is strong, stronger than me! I would be whining constantly!

I just hope that will be the LAST trip we take to the doctors for a while!
(We definitely do NOT want a repeat while in a 3rd world country!)
