One month ago tonight

..........we were out by our fire pit, when André went to stick the knife he was using into the ground beside him.....it hit a rock or something stopping the knife but not his hand...two of his fingers slid across the blade cutting to the bone......
since then we have been asked by a few how he could cut it so deeply....it was not a dull blade, nor small....
I'd like to add here André has owned knifes for many years without incident...he is not what one would call normally careless with tools. This was the first time he's needed stitches at all....being André he had to do it up big lol


We started Reiki on the spot.....


After the ER took a look we were told he needed to have surgery....as soon as we could if he wanted to feel or move them again.....


We kept the Reiki going and asked for help from other energy workers, after getting home from the the ER......you could see his hand light up, by this time we had stopped the bleeding and were working to keep the tendons in place...




About 12 hours after it happened we met up with the Doctor who we picked to do the surgery....he said it was as bad as it could get.....without taking the fingers off....in cases like this he would need to open up his palm and most likely part of his wrist.....he was worried that us using Reiki would make the tendons retreat even more because he could feel André's hand twitching from the Reiki.....


André on the other hand could feel it helping, so he wanted to stick with Reiki....he was able to go through this whole thing without pain meds. He did try half of one...said it didn't help like Reiki... the meds were kind of blocking Reiki a bit.....


Surgery took more than 3 hours.....the doc didn't need to cut open even his palm.....the tendons stayed in his fingers.....he did cut two nerves and two tendons in each finger....the doc put those back together, he did say he was surprised where he found the tendons though lol and told us to keep doing what we were doing, as it was working :D
So we go back the next week.....this time the doc was surprised that André could move his fingers more already ( was able to right away )


Today we go back and he is way more that surprised that André has feeling on both sides of his fingers.....didn't know how that could be....said by all rights he shouldn't be able to feel anything on the left side of his fingers.....those nerves had been split....
He was very happy how André's healing is going...they are a bit stiff but doing great....


Thank you to....
 the doctors and nurses who did a great job....and on the whole have been very good to all of us, not just André 


 The Doctor who did his surgery and his staff were so very nice and good at their jobs....I mean really sweet people who truly care....


  and to all of you who said a prayer, held him in your thoughts, sent good energies, lit candles, did spell work and Reiki..... we send our most sincere and heartfelt gratitude         Thank you
