The Miracle of the Thumb
As you all know 7 weeks ago i got out of control and severed the tendon and really in general screwed myself UP

So with the Grace of knowing a good hand surgeon i find that while i be going to PT a while yet it is healing much faster than expected and responding to the PT needed to regain the full range of motion

Wow! That is unbelieveable. I had feared the worst for you, and so I am very relieved to see that.

Keep healing and be careful....

And who says that a good marine body filler is only useful above the waterline? A little bit of wet sanding and compounding, and that scar's gonna be absolutely invisible! You won't even have to paint!

All kidding aside Tom, that's great news. The PT will suck a little (it always does) but those folks are usually miracle workers.

Can you give me the surgeons name? I'd like him to work on my face! :D

Good for you Tom. I hope you continue to recover from this as well as you have.

We should change his screen name from Tommays to "Tom Thumb"!

Glad to see you are healing nicely. You may have a built in weather detector now. When your thumb aches, a low front is approaching.
