Oh my! I hope that he is feeling better soon. I always tell my Darling Husband that this will be him someday. He makes me nervous because he is totally the “act now and think later” type!

My dad isn’t a klutz, but he IS a mechanic. And his favorite story to tell is how when he and my mom had been dating about two years she was an assistant in a medical office and he came in one day with a screwdriver THROUGH HIS HAND and she fainted. He also got a chain embedded in his forehead once… the man is one giant injury and he just blows it off lol

Silly dads!  Somehow my dad managed to cut off the tip of his finger when the lawnmower (the push kind) got clogged and he reached down to pull a chunk of grass out of the way.  Annnd… then there’s the imfamous toilet seat repair incident.  To this day, I don’t know how he managed to install a new seat but leave it loose enough that it sent anyone who sat on it flying off to one side.  Oh, fun times, Silly Dad, fun times.  I miss him so much!!

This reminds me of my grandfather. When he was in a nursing home after his fourth stroke the nurses spent some time trying to figure out what kind of accident would amputate both of his thumbs and some toes. We had to explain that he self amputated those limbs in three separate accidents. You’d think after the first thumb got stuck in a teletype machine after the war he would have been more careful, but that didn’t stop him from getting the second stuck in a car transmission and running the lawn mower over his foot. My mom still tells the story of having to go find his thumb under the car before they went to the hospital. Papa also got hit by a car, struck by lightning, fell off the roof, crashed a motorcycle ect ect. I blame his genes for my clumsiness often.

I’m glad he’s ok! This sounds sooo much like my dad. His accidents include using a lawn aerator to “aerate” (aka punch a hole in) his palm, and running right into a broken jagged guardrail while jogging that required 150 stitches all through his leg muscles. My Fiance is always laughing at how I’m constantly running into the coffee table, but it could be so much worse!

My father once put a drill press through the meaty part of his thumb and forefinger. I remember distinctly… I was very young (3-4ish) and he looked down at it, then wrapped it in a greasy towel.

He never went to the hospital and it healed up fine. He also hit his thumb with a hammer and then drilled a hole in his finger nail to release the blood underneath.

 

My dad is kind of a badass.

@Hyperventilate:  I had to turn my head when a friend drilled a hole in his nail!!  I was so sure he’d get a raging infection, but no… of course, it was okay.
