Well, I suck....
One bad meat cleaver swing, and I nearly cut the tip of my thumb off tonight....just got back from the ER
Fortunately it was stitchable, so my thumb will be somewhat normal...Only thing that sucks is I won't be riding very much for a month or two (can't shift plus pain meds mimght not play well)...this freaking sucks!
On the bright side...Vicodin isn't half bad...and the Doctor who stitched me up was rather cute, and kept me distracted through 90% of it.
For those who care about gore...I sliced it at about a -40 degree angle, 75% of the way through...and almost clear through the bone....as well as through the nail of course....
One mroe day I was glad about boy scout training...I knew what to do to minimize bleeding and get most of the first aid stuff done.
Well, wish me luck on my one or two month uni-thumbed adventures!
