Forced Musical Hiatus


Recommended Posts

Recipe for putting your life (music/skiing/biking) on hold for a year.

This is what the outside of my arm looks like two weeks after falling on some metal flashing and severing my ulner artery and 7 tendons governing the use of my right hand.

Yes, I'm right-handed.

I think I'm fairly lucky to be alive given the blood loss - and, I'm healing up well. But, it's a head-trip thinking about the recovery and the what ifs...


Don't try this at home!

ouch! So sorry to read about this. Glad you're still around. sheet metal scares the crap out of me.

tell me. i work in the engineering office of a metal fabricator, almost all of my work clothes have zings in them from walking past sheets of steel on skids. Hope you heal fast TF, that looks like a pretty nasty cut.

hoping for a full recovery.

depending on the blood loss you probably are lucky to be alive!

i remember i was on call for the PICU one night as a residcent and this 4 year old kid came in after severing her brachial artery from falling off a swing...i was so happy that she a) lived, and B) did not lose her arm...but one LONG stressful night for the both of us.
