Holy Crap! That is nasty looking. Glad you're OK. Lucky it didn't take out an artery.

I'll have a hard time getting that picture put of my mind. I still have a glass carboy. That sucker is gone.

Wow! Got you good. Hope you have a fast and complete recovery.
Reading that makes me want to go sign up for my obamacare. On second thought, I think i will just make a plywood box for all my glass.

Best wishes for quick recovery for you and yours. Your tragedy has awakened me to the fact that at 74 yr old, maybe, I should stop packing those things around.

I hope you have a full recovery, really scary, thank you for posting and warning others.

I hope the journey to full health is not as bad as predicted.

Kindest thoughts

Oh, that's awful! A similar thing happened to my friend, and she couldn't find her phone and drove herself to the hospital (luckily three blocks away). She did ok, and they reattached her thumb but it was really scary.

Here's to a full and complete recover!

Best wishes and prayers for a fast and full recovery.

I'll never own a glass carboy.

Good news my pinky is starting to move fully. Only thing is the muscles and skin are are tied together at the scar so my skin and everything at the cut move when i move my pinky, painful. The occupational therapist warned of this happening so hopefully i can work it back to near normal. Luckily i have a good brewing apprentice and was able to make a 11 gal hopfenweiss clone and 5 gal amber lager this weekend with help. Back to the fermenting bucket for 5 gal batches and i moved up to sanke kegs with a rubber carboy cap and airlock for big batches.
