Crazy accident
Hope you heal well and thanks you or sharing your misfortune with all of us here.
This is definitely an eye opener for me to get my garage picked up so something doesn't get freaky

Again wish you a speedy and healthy recovery

My big accident happened yesterday I have aquarium bits all over my bedroom to get into my wardrobe I have to stand on a 20kg bucket of salt but yesterday I slipped off and my leg hit my spare tank the glass cut a 3inch long hole into my leg going deep into the muscle. I went straight to the hospital where I waited 7 hours before going into surgery im luck I didn't hit my tendons or nerves or an artery it will be months before I will be able to get back to my usual self again so here's my warning don't leave aquarium objects allover the floor if my leg gets an infection I could loose it

Man ohhhh man. Had to skim by the cut picture really fast. Jeez.. That is a deep one. Hope you heal fast. We need to make a go-fund-me account for a new tank for him!

Welcome! Looks like a knife wound! You are going to have one awesome scar! A friend once gave me a great book. Clutters Last Stand! Want to borrow it? Kidding man, glad it was not worse. Congratulations on the new tank. Seriously though, some of us gals love a mean scar! Have to organize my clutter tomorrow. Thanks for the gruesome reminder. Shakes head.
