Another Broken Bone!?!?

Yes, you read the title right; another family member broke a bone on Tuesday (found out today that it was broke). The question is who? Any guesses? I'll narrow it down for you: it is an adult. I bet your first thought was me, since I am the more accident prone one, but you would be wrong... it is Chris.
He joined the church's men's softball team and in their second game, Tuesday night, he was playing catcher, caught the ball, tagged the guy coming in, but the dropped, after the tag. He broke his thumb inside his glove as the runner slammed into his hand. You would think it was good he broke his left thumb, because he is right handed, but when you are a guitarist for a major part of your job, it's not so good. Can't play many chords with a broken left hand. He broke it right below the knuckle. Tomorrow he is going in for surgery (check in is at 7:30AM) to set it and to put pins in it. The doctor said he could set it without surgery, but it would be a good idea to go in for surgery and set it, putting pins in it, so he can have the best gripping ability after it heals so he can play the guitar. The doctor said it will be at least 6 weeks of healing.
Something funny, okay, not really funny.... We paid Emma's last bill for her broken leg, just a few hours before Chris broke his thumb. Please pray for Chris' peace of mind for his surgery, his hand, spending money on his hand (not the house) and for the busy weekend he has (funereal, preaching, youth group) as Pastor Troy is out of town.

Note: I posted 7 more posts today (they are not all showing on this page) . I posted 6 on our trip to Arches National trip and one on Madi's top teeth.

We will be calling you either tonight or tomorrow afternoon. I think Bri would like to stop by and see Chris. He has really bonded with him and will be so concerned when he finds out.
