Glass half full, half empty or just really dirty?

Looking at the recent near severing and reattaching of Mr. Dog's finger tip, noting the ups and downs. Thought I might make it into a blog post. Humor me.

Upside: He won't have house projects to work on this weekend, so we can have some more quality family time.
Downside: Quality family time is kind of what led to the finger tip incident, more or less. What's next to be severed?

Upside: In his spare time, he is loading and loading the dishwasher, this can be done with his impaired hand.
Downside: Since his dexterity is down, I get to perform all diaper changes.

Upside: Oxycontin prescription in the house. Um, not that I do that kind of thing ya know.
Downside: Now have a fear of uninvited Rush Limbaugh visits.

Upside: We're spending a bit more time together since he isn't out in the yard, or under the house.
Downside: He now supervises me as I perform manual labor, like cleaning up after the dogs' recent attack on a big bag of compost, and makes "helpful" suggestions.

Upside: Big bandage on his finger makes it look like he's continually flipping the bird. And I find that kind of thing extremely amusing.
Downside: Really, is there a downside to this one?
