life has been a bit crazy since my husband was injured in a farm accident. we are so thankful, that my little boy was there to call for help & that even though the damage looks bad – at least the bones weren’t affected. which is amazing when you consider what happened. michael’s fingers are healing & he will be OK. the story made the front page of the local paper – it looks like the ambulance service will give bear an award for bravery. sooo proud of him! here they are with the ambo driver who helped on the day of the accident:
