Jeep Injury! 3 stiches in my thumb yesterday!

I am FINALLY nearing completion of my dana 44 axle swap and without an injury, until yesterday!! I was hammering in wheel studs into the new ford hub....when that big a55 five pound hammer missed the stud and caught the side of my finger. Well, that wasn't what did it!! It seems that the freshly machined hub and rotor proved to be pretty sharp....so off to the ER I go!
So, I've decided now that whenever people ask how much it costs to upgrade something-I'm just going to add about $300 for an ER visit!
You know what makes it worse...the sun was out when I left so I didn't put anything away and of course while I was in the ER--IT RAINED!!!!!

You know what we want......PICTURES... of the thumb.
Hope the thumb heals quickly. Guess I need to add that extra $$ into my budget for my swap this winter.

Larry, a "twingling" hemmheroid is not something I want to hear about just after eating! [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Thanks for the visual though!

I really hate it when you miss something and hit your thumb with the hammer. I hate it even more when your thumb explodes or "pops" and the blood comes out all at once, splattering everything. Ironically enough it never hurts right away, so you can look at the split and bleeding mess before it starts to throb so badly your neighbors can feel it.
