That doesn't look good at all. Are you still able to use it much?
It doesn't bend too well, but I can manage to get around and drive and all that. I've taken minimal pain meds and it really isn't hurting too bad at the moment. I'll definitely hit the meds before bed though. I didn't have any last night since the pharmacy was closed by the time I got out of the ER, and it was a rough night trying to find a position to lay in that didn't make it hurt.

I've done the same thing with a 6'' side grinder+ no fun at all.
My OTC pain cocktail is 2 extra strength Tylenol, 2 Advil and 2 aspirin twice a day. I have Doc's and RN's in my family and they turned me on to this, it works best with caffeine, either a strong cup of coffee or a Soda or energy drink.

Keep the laceration covered and moist by using a triple biotic ointment/ Neosporin 2-4X a day.

That suck's, sorry bud, your garden plot makes me jealous as heck, I only have room for two 7'x 10' raised beds at this house. I'm mainly growing some of Norcal's famous herbs, tomatoes and peppers this year.

Yikes on the leg! Glad that it wasnt worse. Grinder story from my trauma nurse days....Fella had a blade break and stuck about 3 inches of it into his chest. Hit his lung. Spent a good while in the hospital fighting the infection from the dirty blade.
On a side note....Would love to be able to have a garden that big.

Doug, next time you want to make a pair of shorts...take your jeans off and use a pair of scissors. Just kidding! That looks ugly as sin, take your time and heal up. Think you should give out your address tho, all these guys are jealous of your garden...they can come plant it and have a big garden this year! :emoji_blush:

I couldn't find a pair of scissors, so I just used what was handy at the time.

It looks and feels much better now, David. Just one of those freak things; the grinder was no longer in my hands when it got me. I just so happened to be in a position to get bit when it flew out of my hands. Normally I set things up to where the grinder will go away from me if it hangs, but I couldn't set up that way in this case. And if there is a plus in this, at least it didn't hit me in the junk or face.

With the last frost about out of the way, it's time to get the garden ready to plant. I got my first go with the tiller done today, but I won't plant most of it for a week or so. We about always get our last frost in the beginning of May.

Let's see some gardens!!!!

Here's mine

Came for the garden, stayed for the scar.

When I tried chopping my fingers off on my table saw I really messed them up. My wound care therapist insisted I used Medihoney. I was really skeptical but I complied. The stuff was amazing and my wounds healed a lot faster than I expected.

My apologies for giving medical advice but Medihoney was so effective I’m breaking one of my personal boundaries. It also smells like it would be delicious on corn bread. Haha!
