Ann,cloverfarm said:Only sympathy here ... our 7//y/o DD is recovering from getting her finger crushed/broken while riding on skid loader. (Followed by surgery to insert pins and stitch it all up, and massive doses of antibiotics and pain meds.) Fortunately for her, it was her pinkie. If it had been one of the more-often used fingers she would have been in a lot worse shape.
I am amazed at how much impact a "minor" injury had!
We also took note that Jena got hurt with a feed-bunk conveyer (is that right?) which was a cautionary note to the rest of the family. Last week one of our neighbors got his shirt caught in the silo unloader (auger that runs around on a track inside the silo) and got ripped up pretty bad. He feels lucky to be alive.
The thing to do when we hear about an incident like Jena's or DD's is to learn from it. We have to learn from the mistakes of others, we won't live long enough to make them all ourselves!
I am so glad to hear your neighbor is alive. Those unloaders are sure nasty! I get the heebie jeebies looking at the thing, even when it's not running! Lucky guy.
Yeah, mine was a feed conveyor.
I hope your daughter is feeling better. Let her know I KNOW how it feels!!!!
