Not our typical Sunday...

After church on Sundays, Adam and I typically go home and enjoy a much needed Sunday nap. It is pretty much the one thing that gets us through the rest of the week! This Sunday was a little different. When we got home, we realized that we had a kitchen full of dirty dishes from the night before. Instead of leaving them for later, we decided to just bite the bullet and get them done before our nap. Adam chose to wash and I was the dryer/put awayer. As I was waiting for things to put away, I called my dad. While I was in the other room talking, I heard something break. I looked in the kitchen and saw that a glass had broken and Adam didn't look too happy. I planned on ending my conversation quickly with my dad so I could help Adam clean up the mess. I looked back again and realized that Adam had been cut pretty badly (it was bleeding a lot) on his finger, so I went to get the Band-Aids. While I was doing this (still talking to my dad), Adam came into the bedroom, leaned against the dresser.........and then collapsed onto the floor. I threw my phone and tried to figure out what was going on. Adam came to pretty quickly, but we were both pretty shaken. Once we got him to the bed, we realized that his shirt had ripped when he had fallen. As we were looking at the rip, we realized his shoulder was cut too. Then, we realized the cut went all the way to his back! We think he was cut either by the dresser corner or the metal handle on our closet. Luckily, all our throw pillows softened his landing, so those were his only injuries. I played nurse the rest of the day and we made sure to get our much needed nap....just a few hours later than usual.

The Injury (as a result of the other injury):

I really don't think these pictures do it justice...but you get the idea. And yes, we did stop to take pictures before cleaning up his wounds. As he was resting, I finished the dishes and made sure to let him know that if he really wanted out of doing the dishes...he could just tell me.

Oh man! That looks like a nasty cut. Maybe he'll have a tough looking scar when you go on your trip and you can tell people he got in a knife fight. Tough!

Scary! Passing out is NO GOOD. Hope that you are doing well, besides the injuries and all... and I agree with Joel... go with the knife fight, but have Adam shave his head first!--Erika

So did he faint from a CUT on his finger? Hopefully there isn't more to why he fainted...

That cut looks so bad!

Dude! I'm sorry you cut yourself - that sounds horrible! I know what that's like. I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself more when you passed out. I guess the word is out: Buhlers pass out at the sight of their own blood. We just can't help it, man.
