Friday morning I was loading the truck at work and things went bad pretty quick. Liquid tanks like scrappers carry in the back of their trucks, got away from me and caught my left hand between the tank(750#) and the cart. 4 hours in surgery and back home. I cut the tendon that makes my middle finger work, and stitches in two other fingers. Lots of time off work and not able to move my left hand for 4 weeks :(

It's easy to get in a jamb. When I do something like that I wish I could go back and do it differently but it's too late. What are you going to do with your time off?

Not much,Saturday night was the first night I slept in my own bed. I must have twisted my shoulder and elbow. Thursday I get to see the doctor,maybe I can get this cast off and go to something smaller.

Restrictions are up to a 50# weight limit. I can drive a tow motor, drive the F-450 and ride shot gun in a route truck.
Six weeks of therapy and I should be good as new, or at least as good as I was in July :lol:
