    Default How quickly it happens

    Was removing an old aluminum framed window from my foundation.

    Crowbar slipped while prying up and my thumb ended up being crushed/smashed between the crowbar and the corner made of concrete.

    Damage; Nail smashed
    Laceration on nail bed (thumb almost cut in half)
    3 stitched in nail bed
    Broken thumb

    Throbbing!!

    Yeah I've seen much much worse...

    Usually not on myself though!

    Watched the whole procedure too. Had some gloves out but did not put them on (don't think it would of helped but who knows)

    Be careful out there and learn from my mistake; slow down!

    Those pictures remind me of a time many years ago when I was putting chain lube on my motor cycle chain, Yep, you can guess.what happen.

    The tire was spinning slowly, and my finger got to close and the finger rolled in 3 links before I realized it, and I had to back the wheel to remove my finger out of the chain and sprocket. Punched a hole through the finger nail, and cut the end of the finger tip bone.

    Wow, did it ever hurt. I never did that again.

    Well done my friend!
    And thanks for the photos. Photo #1 is particularly descriptive.


    I suspect you will have a phsysical remnder of that little lapse in judgement for a few months.
    I' m not at all sure how I can learn from your mistakes other than to accept the fact that they (mistakes)happen.
    I would say "wear gloves" but judging by the damage, gloves would have only meant a little less blood.
    Since you went to the trouble to post the carnage, I would like to see it in a couple of weeks and maybe a month or so.

    Good luck with that andTHUMBS UP if you willl
