    Monday at work I got cracked in the face when I wire I was cutting sprung back (750kcmill for anyone who cares). Busted my top and bottom lip 22 days before NABBA!!!! It's been slow but recovery is happening. Still hard to hit the top space E, lips just stop working. Thought I'd give us something else to read about

    Yikes-facial injuries aren't good at all.
    Hope you recover fast and easily, Dennis.

    Sorry to hear all that, Dennis. I have only had one small injury that healed in less than a week , but that was bad enough. I have nightmares about this sort of thing. I go stir crazy when I can not play.

    I usually only worry about my hands. After a days work my hands are very stiff

    Best wishes Dennis. A flesh wound is bad enough, it will heal, but I have a reoccurring nightmare about falling on my face and loosing all of my front teeth. Here is a little known fact about me.....I'm one tough SOB, except when it comes to blood and guts, especially my own. I need to join Big Babies Anonymous. Heal up my friend.
