OMG Buck. I saw an accident like that once in Houston and it took off almost half of the girl's foot. Did it affect your gait afterward?

No, I've been pretty lucky in that department.

Wow Buck, that almost happened to me once! I slipped just like you, and as I fell my hands went up raising the lawnmower, and my feet where headed straight for the blade! Somehow, I manage to quickly shift and caught the body of the mower with the heel of my foot...but for some reason didn’t let go of the handle. So I was lying on the ground balancing the running mower on my foot while holding the handle. I finally “woke up” and threw it away from me. I always wondered what would have happened if my foot had actually gone in that day.

Did it cut all of your toes off? Did they put them back on?

Speaking of great things to say....when I got hit by that softball and my lip was split, they held a towel over it until the Doctor came in. I’m lying on the table in the ER covered with this towel, and the Doctor comes in snapping on some rubber gloves. Then he says “let’s take a look at what we have here”.

He pulls the towel off, and I SWEAR to you he said “Oh God”. I’m not lying! I almost passed out!

But, he immediately went to work and did a great job!

There wasn't anything left to reattach. I'm missing all but the two outboard-most toes on my right foot.
