    Got a call from paul. Had to fetchhim and take him to medi clinic. He was playing with a knife under his tank and managed to cut the tendon to his thumb. I am in the waiting room betting he gets five stitches after they attach his tendon.

    Told him to tell them not to stitch tendon too tight otherwise he will stick his thumb in his eye everytime he sticks a fork of food in his mouth

    Eish, I did that while doing bonsai. Bone stopped the blade. After the op, had to go for therapy to learn how to reuse the thumb. Had a funny pink cast on for a few months to protect the thumb. Driving was the shits.

    Give him my best
