Wainwright ran right downstairs and showed the dollar to his wife, who told him it was his reward for being brave through the painful injury. She also said the appearance of the money explained the noise she heard in their house last night.
"I remember hearing some noise downstairs like someone had forced open the backdoor," said Michelle Wainwright. "But I think I thought I was dreaming. And then, a few minutes later, I think I saw some old man standing near our bed. That must have been Tommy John, the Elbow Fairy."
