Hugs and Prayers....

Hey guys-
I had every intention of posting a recent project and also another that I have been looking forward to sharing for over 6 months!!!!  However, Sunday I was informed that my nephew had fallen off of his bike into hot coals and ash and was being rushed to the hospital.  My brother and sister-in-law had been burning fallen trees, and yard waste in the big fire pit Saturday night-and for some reason or another, Sunday my nephew fell into it.  I do know they hadn't started any fires Sunday, so he didn't fall into flames, but rather smoldering hot coals and ash.  I also know he was riding his bike and had fallen-off, and my brother was able to get to him within a few seconds.  He was complaining about his hands, and after my brother had rinsed them and was looking at them he said his knee hurt really bad.  When my brother looked down and saw it he suddenly realized it was much worse than either of his hands.  After he ran it under water, he put him into the car and rushed him to the hospital.  They gave him morphine, and wrapped him.  The ER doc advised my sister-in-law to call his physician in the morning, and didn't think it was bad enough to send him to Riley Hospital in Indianapolis.  Here's a picture of him all bandaged up....


Then, yesterday morning, his physician said it was extremely severe, and sent him to Riley Hospital immediately.  His hands will recover, but they are thinking he will need numerous surgeries done on his leg, and he won't have very good range of motion.  They were shocked that he hadn't been sent there the night before.  Nonetheless, please send prayers and hugs for a speedy recovery.  Needless to say, this has delayed my schedule a little bit, but hopefully little Chase gets better quickly, and I can take a second to tell you some good news, and share some projects.
