After 20 some odd years working with saws I finally did it.
Friday 01-31-020 my hand got got caught in a table saw. :o
parts of 4 fingers and a thumb were, as the medical report reads, catastrophically injured (something to that affect).
I was told I would loose 3 fingers and a thumb at or below the first joint. :think:

FIRM WARNING - THE attached photos contain some violent injuries (removed body parts)!
if you got a week stomach skip to the last photo or at minimum the second photo.

An amazing hand surgeon spent 7 hours putting me back together.
which included reconstruction of middle and ringfinger as well as my thumb. Then it was a wait and see type thing.
They survived :lol: :clap: so did i.

4 week check up surgeon said the recovery is virtually miraculous and outstanding. pins was removed and my final two fingers were free to use again, slowly.
i have a ways to go yet, but it improves daily.

Praying for you, Bro.!!! So glad they were able to put your hand back together - Keep hunting, and many of us like to hear about the hunts, size of the hogs taken, etc.

UPDATE,

hand is getting a bit stronger and a bit more flexible every day :thumbup:
it does seem that the skin growth to fill the gap on my middle finger has slowed down significantly. :?:
We're thinking it might require a skin graph. Consult with the surgeon is probably needed.
other than that, all seems to be moving in a good direction, slowly but surely.
thanks you for your your support.

My cousin Chase and his family was so kind to create a GOFUNDME page. My woodwork was suspended by the BOSS (my wife) until I can replace the cheap, unsafe Miter Saw and Table Saw to those with better safety features.

those interested in some of my woodwork can see it now that i have added to my website.
https://texasboars.com/wood/ - take brief moment to take a peak. I would really appreciate it.
