Update on my injury!!!

Postby vampyrewolf » Thu Aug 09, 2001 12:00 am

Well, I did it friday night, It's now Thurday Morning... 4 days, 7hrs since the accident...



I just removed the bandage to change it for the day after yet another hard day at work doing it one-handed(even my sweep and mop).



The tissue is closed up but still tender to the touch. I'm not going to move it too much this week yet, waiting till the middle of next week before I start my rehab... have to give the muscle time to heal too.



I've always healed fast, and love it. My thumb is at the stage after 4 days where most ppl are after 1 week.



The good thing is, I still have feeling around the wound(unlike on my right index finger from a knife wound 2 yrs ago, stupid mistake)...



I should be back to normal by the end of the month. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>



We all start with 10 fingers. Those with Spydies have 9 to spare, Still need a thumb. Good thing I still have 8 to spare...

I've already made my suggestion of the ultimate user, and no-one said anything...

Cricket on 'roids, but keeping the stats...

beefier lock(maybe even framelock), 3.5-4" blade, just double the size of the current model... same profile and all.

I want a bigger hawkbill, but the harpy is too much curve, and the matriach isn't a user... The front 50% of the cricket has a nice curve for boxes, so imagine a 2" belly at the back, 2" curve at the front, and about 2" belly for the back(by the kick), about 1.5" belly at center, going into the tip... keep it in a oval shape...

Way to go VampyreWolf, welcome to the club.

I have always found that a cut from a sharp knife will heal much faster that a cut from a dull knife.

That's another reason for keeping your knife well maintained.

It wasn't even a knife... I can actually type normally, have about 50% mobility in my thumb now...
