Chop away from your hand yeah?

I now have two parallel scars on my left index finger.

Trying to cut a piece of timber with a breadknife at age 10 earned me the first scar.
The second occurred last week when i was trimming some bamboo lazily and sunk a machete deep into my knuckle.
The river was uncrossable by jeep or buffalo. I had to wade across the fast moving water that was not quite neck high bleeding the whole time! We entrusted Myles to the shoulders of some sturdy locals and everyone was fine.

The hospital was awesome. Check into er, meet surgeon, meet anethesist, have surgery on tendon under general. All over and done with in 2 hours! Only $199.95 aud!
I love the hospitals here!
