Thank you, everyone, for your prayers. The news is good as we wait for Will to wake up: The tendon was only nicked and though the sheath around it had some damage they were able to make the needed repairs. Apparently, he will not need a splint and they want us to keep his finger covered only in Band-Aids in order to encourage movement. This news is far better than what we'd hoped and certainly far better than what we'd feared, so I appreciate your prayers.
I'll let you know more later today.
The Lord is good; his love endures forever.
