Thanks for all your good wishes. Hopefully they've managed to save the tip of my index finger as there was not much bone left. The second and ring finger have both suffered nerve and tendon damage so am likely to be out of action for at least a couple of months which is a real bummer.
OH MY GOD Col. That looks a mess. I have to admit also you are a braver sole than I as I would be on the floor passed out. I can look at other peoples blood but not my own. :shock: Hope it mends soon mate and with no lasting damage.
