Please keep my dad in your thoughts.  He was cutting wood when the chainsaw he was using backfired and cut up part of his forehead.  He has at least 100 stitches and the doc said he'd be okay, but I still worry.

If you are using power tools, please take care.  It only takes a second for something bad to happen.

It is unbelievable how quickly a terrible accident can happen. My thoughts are with you and him.

So sorry, I will keep him in my prayers! Chainsaws can be very dangerous. A few years ago my oldest son, Andrew was using a chainsaw and ended up hitting his leg right below the knee. Luckily it was a small injury, 20 stitches, but when I took him to the ER the doctor said he had never saw a chainsaw accident that "good"! He said most times you are looking at over 100 stitches! Hope you dad heals and gets better real soon.
