A couple of weeks ago, Dick was rushing around his house when a four-inch shard of wood got lodged in his foot.
“We have very thick pine tongue-and-groove floors. We had them refinished, but there are spots in it where splinters and pieces of wood come up,” Dick told the Lexington Herald-Leader. “All I know is I rushed through a hallway and the next thing I know, I felt this shooting pain like a knife had been stuck up through my foot.”
Dick underwent surgery to remove the massive splinter, and he’s been on crutches following the operation. He returned to work this week.
