I don't know what to say. No words can really help the situation but I am praying for you my friend. We all are.

the only thing that can counter my extreme sorrow for your accident is the knowledge that you are an incredible person and have what it takes to power through this in the same confident and inspiring way you do everything in your life. My thoughts are with you and your family and I wish you the best.

My love and support to you and Tina. Be strong.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure. - Helen Keller

I am at a loss for words, but know that I am sending my best to you and your fam. On the optimistic side: I can't wait to hook up with you post-rehab so we can grease the bearings on your new Skywalker hand!

TonyM Checkin' in

Hello All You Buzzards! I have never been great typing but this 1 hand thing is going to take some time. First off, Thank you all for you support! I was in a Rhino ATV that rolled over, I was a passenger and had my right hand on a metal grab handle when it rolled. I have lost most of my right hand, but I should have use of my wrist and may have a stub of a thumb. I do happen to be a lefty, so i got that going for me. I spent the last week in Denver ICU, i have been through 4 surgeries and have another monday, hopefully the last for a while. I am out of ICU and in a regular room. This has been and will continue to bethe biggest challenge life has ever thrown me, I am trying to look at the positives, i have my legs, i have my mind, i have the best support on the planet from all of you, my wife Tina, my family, and my determination. I know I have a long road but i am still here and i will boof again!Thank you all, I will be on her updating more. Thank you all! Tony Miely 4CRS

Sorry to hear about your accident man, that's too bad... I hope all is well, and if i could i'd donate myself, but i'm in almost the same boat as you. And i know that no matter what it's going to work out, and it will for you too.
