    For the last 36 hours I've been out cold while in and out of the operating room. I was volunteering at my old high school's gym, rebuilding all their exercise bikes, when my hand got run through between a sprocket and chain. I lost alot of blood but I made to the hospital where they said I'd lose my right index finger. After someone sent my pulverized hand's x-rays around the state, a doctor in Scottsdale said he wanted to try and save my finger. I was Med-Trans to their operating room. Today, I'm home after 2.5 hours of surgery, with 5 pins haning from one finger. No one knows if I'll keep it yet, but I have more surgery next week, and more a month after. Since I don't always have a friend to type for me like I do now, I dont think I'll be on the website much in the coming weeks/months. I'm kinda bummed that I will miss alot of fishing and chatting with all you guys. Good fishing, I'll be back in the swing of things as soon as I can.

    I hope it all works out ok. I cut the ends off two of my fingers a few years ago. It's gonna hurt real bad for a couple of days.

    Sorry to hear about your finger . Think positive and heal fast. I once saw a three fingered guitar player. So goodluck. btw Myfather cut 2 fingers off in a tablesaw and they reattached them successfully.
