Just an update for all the good folks asking about my hand. The flesh wound has healed. None of the flesh died, praise God! I am back at work (Marsh Man is glad of that :biggrin The pain is finally better. Haven't had to take but 2 pain meds in 2 weeks. Haven't had to wear the Tins Unit since Friday. I'm still in a cast but they shortened it to my wrist. I'm gradually getting out of the sling too. Doing some therapy with the whole hand. That ain't for sissies!!! One bone is still broken in 3 places and some smaller bones crushed. Dr. had hoped the bones would go back together on their own but that's not happening. So I may be looking at one more surgery to fix the bones. Will go back to Dr. on Jan. 4th. I went to the woods for the first time Saturday and it was so wonderful. I still can't hold a gun to shoot but that's ok. Being out there with the camera is enough for me. Thank you all for your prayers and kind thoughts.
