Just to update: my arm has healed very well, aside from the scar and the constant thoughts of the event and the bill collectors calling, there are NO side effects. No sudden tingle, pain, discomfort or any of the likewise. Its almost as if it never happened. By the grace of God, I have 100% usage, feeling, mobility and dexterity. Yet this does not deter my drive to tell my story so that it may in turn save some one else from injury or death. Thank you all for the warm wishes to recover and to those of you who took the time to add a few extra words to your daily prayers.
