John, that's incredible! What an experience, I can only imagine. Would love to see a picture of the healing today, progress so far, if you like. Hip hip hurray! for today's medical technology. See you out in the hills!

John,

Happy to hear that your thumb was re-attached successfully and great to hear that you're back climbing.

I consider this to be money well spent by the health insurance system.

It was hard to believe before. The pics don't make it any less incredible! What's it look like now?

I just took these pictures so you can see that everything is almost totally healed. The nail is slowly growing back but that will take awhile

A medical tour de force, for sure!
Hope you get all articulation, strength and feelings back.
Your thread's reminded me to mind ALL my appendages while climbing.
Thanks John.

John,
Congratulations on having your thumb back in good shape. I trust that it works as well as it looks.
