Default Respects

You, Sir, should be respected and admired by all who come even close to a firearm.

Please don't beat yourself up, you have bigger balls than anyone I know just for sharing.

We, of course, will all say we know better,etc.

But this was a learning experience.

I hope your recovery is complete.

Will there be follow on surgeries to repair tendons and such, or did you get lucky and get full motion, grip, etc back.

My best wishes to you, please keep us advised.

Went to see the Dr. today. Said all healing as should and no infections. Bone still going to take 6 weeks or so for the bone to heal, tendon healing nicely, ulnar nerve may heal in 4-6 months...may not. If not, I will have constant numbness in the pinkie and ring fingers, unless another surgery is performed. He said I was damn lucky that's only damage that was done. Could have be worse on so many different levels...I agree as well as most of you guys would. Lots of therapy to regain all functions.

Stitches and Staples came out today, healing nicely. Just waiting on time to go by until all is well. Anyone know how to make the hands on the clock spin faster. lol

As I said eariler, I hope you heal totally and have no physical loss. If you need further medical help please keep this practice in mind,
Georgia Hand, Shoulder & Elbow
They put me back together once, and although I have my share of scars (some visible, some not) I am really no worse for the wear.
