    Geez Danny, I am wincing in pain at your description of your accident. Hope you get full recovery to all your digits soon, but you are one tough old bird and I know it will work out. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Oh Danny, sorry to hear about your accident. When you are feeling better, you can explain the 'giraffe cage'.

    I hope everything works out well for you. Do what the docs tell you and rest well.

    I'm sure all of the BC wishes you the best !!

    Get well soon! :thumbsup:

    I'm so sorry! What a nightmare!

    It seems like you must be recovering very well since the feeling and movement are returning.


    Get lots of rest and take very good care of yourself.


    Get well soon!

    I'm really to sorry to hear this D-Boy, I can't even imagine what I would think if I looked down and saw my fingers and thumb hanging like that. I hope everything works out for you and I'm glad it wasn't worse, it certainly could have been. Take care, good luck, and rest up.

    Hey d consider this a warning letter for working unsafely.
    You silly bugger.
    Glad to hear you still have feeling in your fingers.
    I had guy in my area try to fix a big roll up door (like the ones in p800's)
    it snapped and he lost his thumb and 2 fingers.
    His thumb and one finger worked well after,and he quickly learned how
    to adapt.Theres one part you left out,he said the pain was unbearable.
    godspeed d
