Was changing tire, jack failed, hand crushed, almost lost fingers, won't be around much
Sorry hope you recover ok
Damn, wish you quick recovery
Terrible to hear! My heart goes out to you ziq! Hopefully there is some sort of physical rehabilitation you can take to get your hand functioning a bit more over time if it isn’t completely fucked. Really feel for you, take care of yourself! Healing can take a long time ❤️
Ughhhh fucking bruuuutalll. Take care of yourselfff. Fast healing be upon you. Check in every once in a while so we know your hand didn't turn into an alien and eat you.
get well soon 🐀
Ouch. Hope you get all movement back to your fingers

Another note, from someone who has suffered a wrist fracture and had to wear a cast on my dominant hand for months.
If your dominant hand is out of play for the next foreseeable future, now is a good time time to train your non-dominant hand and that may have the benefit of making you more ambidextrous for certain tasks in the future when your dominant hand recovers. If the injury is in your non-dominant hand, then likewise, your dominant hand will get stronger. And maybe you can even do things you needed to do two-handed, one-handed.
Sending positive vibes. Get well soon
Also, is there anything we can do to help?
Ouch... I hope the damage isn't too bad.
Having assisted someone that lost parts of fingers, assuming surgery was undertaken, you're at the beginning of a very long recovery.

Surgery and metal rods inserted
Wolverine makes it seem awesome, but all you get is more than a month of regularly changing dressing, plus scar tissue messing up finger flexibility, plus potentially never regaining the full capacity of your hand.
Plus all the pain...
... Bummer, hope things are going okay.

the hospital is an hour drive away and i can't drive until at least the end of april so the weekly dressing changes are really becoming a problem (no public transport here). wish they'd just let me do it myself, it looks simple enough
Hope you recover fully. Wishing you well.
Oh fuck, sorry to hear that. Wish you well! ✊

That's awful, hope you get well soon.
