Yes I'm right there with you on that change in perspective. I've wound up in the hospital a few times over past couple years, the last time was January 1st when I took a digger down a flight of 20 stairs. When I told my dad, he told me a story about how his highschool buddy went home to visit his parents and went downstairs to do laundry, fell and broke his neck on the way down. I'm lucky I just knocked myself out and one broken bone among a bunch of lacerations. It really makes you appreciate being upright ;) In the words of Jimmy Buffett, "It's such a fragile magic." I wish you the speediest of recoveries.

As my family has suffered the loss of a family member killed in a car accident 17 year old Samantha Windham passed away on 6-1-14 and we will be doing a bike ride for her very soon and all the proceeds go to her parents. She was my cousin and was expected to graduate on the 12th so keep her mother, father and little sister in your thoughts. thankyou again

Glad to hear you are going to be able to keep your finger. From the pins and x-rays it looks like you did quite a number on it. Sorry to hear about the loss of your cousin, prayers to your family.

Congrats on the job at PetSmart!
