Hanno - update

There is no easy way to tell you this. Hanno had an accident with the chain saw yesterday and is in hospital. He'll have surgery today. I'll update you when I can. I'll be back to the blog when I can.

UPDATE 9am
Hanno has severed some tendons that attach his thumb to his arm. He's got a gaping cut down to the bone from the base of his thumb to about a quarter the way up his arm, and a few gouges out of his fingers. No bones broken. They've replaced the ambulance dressing with a sterile dressing but haven't done anything else. He's waiting to go to surgery. The doctor said he'll have two procedures - one to wash out the wound (it's got bits of dirt and junk in it) and the other to do the repair work.

Phew. That was a close one. When I heard him screaming out to me, I knew something terrible had happened and when I ran out, he was standing on the verandah holding his arm, blood was gushing out and his jeans were soaked. I thought he'd cut off his hand because I couldn't see it. I sat him down, raced in and grabbed some clean tea towels and wrapped them tightly around the wound. Then I saw his hand was still there and elevated his arm. Ran inside again and rang 000, two ambulances came, one with a doctor on board.

When I left the hospital last night he was sitting up eating a sandwich!!!  I'm just about to go back to the hospital, I'll take the ipad with me and he may be able to read all your comments. Thanks so much for them. Thanks also to Rose who just rang.  I'll update again later. But don't worry, apart from being sore and sorry, and not being able to use his arm for 6-8 weeks, I think he will be okay. Although he doesn't have a chain saw anymore.

My hubby has been on and on at me to let him have a chainsaw as it would make it so much easier to get rid of some trees that we don't need but Hanno's accident proves my point that chainsaws are just too dangerous! My hubby will be reading this tonight!!
    Take it easy and get better very soon Hanno!!!

  134. Ooooh Rhonda - that made my stomach go all queasy! Doesn't it make you glad we live in a country where ambulances are prompt and reliable. Have had to use them a couple of times myself. My uncle had an accident with a chainsaw when we were kids and it went into his thigh. He still proudly shows us the scars. Hope Hanno is healing up well and not in any pain.

  138. Having been through a hand injury with my son recently my heart was in my throat after I read the first two sentences. So glad Hanno still has all his digits but, from experience with another son, it may take about 12 months for the tendon to repair completely and any issues with it to go away. I hope he has soft, warm gloves as hand injuries are susceptible to cold and it makes them ache. Sending my best wishes to Hanno for a good recovery and big hugs to both of you.

  151. HOLY COW!!!! Poor Hanno, and poor RHONDA!!! It's always so hard for the 'safe' one to watch all that transpired to an injured/sick one.
    We live in a forest area of ARIZONA, where we almost burned up last summer-with the largest wildfire in Arizona history---over 586,000 acres! Anyway, we use strictly wood heat and my husband cuts our wood. I usually go with him, but, sometimes, he does got out into the forest alone.....and, I worry...THIS is why!!! Those saws are dangerous and have NO mercy!
    Hope Hanno is better in no time, and that he will listen to Nurse/Dr. Rhonda!

  162. Hanno and Rhonda, I know only too well how you are felling, it was not that long ago that Mr Lashy had an accident with a chainsaw and had it not been for the fact that he had changed out of his thongs and into his workboots a few minutes earlier he would have lost his foot. Hanno rest up and heal well and Rhonda rest up as much as you can because the recovery takes a while and needs to be done well to prevent secondary infections. Love to you both dear friends x

  174. I didn't realise until I got to the end that I had been holding my breath! My heart still feels like it is in my mouth, I guess yours is still there skipping a beat or two. My husband uses a chainsaw sometimes and grinders and...and these things do happen even with the best care. I hope he will regain full use of his thumb and I am glad it wasn't more serious. Lots of love to you both x

  175. Reading that gives me chills. It reminds me of when my daughter came inside after having a tomahawk accident with her Dad, and a tree she was helping him de-branch. I normally faint at the smell of blood, but I managed to hold it together to clean and dress the wound.

    It was a very small cut, but it was deep and the blood, oh, the blood. I know you would have held it together to do what was needed, but there's something chilling about seeing a loved one, bleeding like that. I still think chainsaws are handy tools, like tomahawks, but they are potentially lethal.

    Glad Hanno is okay. :)

  176. OMG, what a shock for you, you did so well to stay calm, despite your initial fears that he'd lost his hand. I hope the surgery goes well & Hanno (& you) recover quickly. He won't know what to do with himself for 6-8 weeks but at least he's won't be wondering what to do without one hand. He's very lucky as those chainsaw can be very dangerous tools. Take care & love to you both, Ann x x

  178. Bless you Hanno and Rhonda! My husband and I went through a similar experience a few years ago on Christmas day( He was "playing" with his new saw and cut 1 finger almost off.The plastic surgeon did a great job on reattaching and after a few weeks my Don was back to normal and still using the saw. Praying for you! Don and Carolyn Gilbert (Florida in USA

  180. Hanno, I'm glad you're okay and that nothing more serious happened. I wish you a very speedy recovery....I know your care is in very good hands! Rhonda, I know that must've been the scare of a lifetime....so proud of you for acting so calmly and getting your thoughts together like that. I'm sure I would've panicked in that situation. Hope your heart has recovered from the shock of that!! XOXOXO from Audrey in Charlotte, NC, USA!
