Not bad, but I have seen worse. I have a friend who only has the thumb, index, and pinky fingers of his right hand let after his 3 yo sister fell on the spliter's op lever.
He was putting a log in to be split, and it took off all 4 of his fingers.
The doctors were able to put all 4 back, but only 2 of them took.

At the hospital he told the Drs. they had to sew the finger back on because he couldn't hold a nail with his thumb and ring finger. They did, the nail is pretty mangled but the finger holds a nail just fine.
For a long time we teased the exes brother that he wasn't a real carpenter because he had all of his fingers!!!
One of the guys on my dad's VFD also has a "5 more minutes" injury. He was almost finished with the base boards in his living room, and he found out he had cut a piece too short. his solution?
He turned the circ saw upside down, fired it up using his left hand, and brought a scrap piece of the molding to the blade. The molding caught on the blade and pulled his right indx finger into said blade. he now has 5 on the left, and 4 on the right.
And yes, he is still a contractor, and he is somewhat smarter now.
After a couple weeks of unpacking I found the SD card apater. Here is what I unwrapped the morning after I crushed my finger. I still have some tenderness, and a numb spot, but it is pretty much healed up now. I have been doing self prescribed PT to get it mobile again. Still not quite working right, but it's getting there.
Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, or to do the wrong thing for the right reason? If you do the wrong thing for the right reason, is it still the wrong thing?
