    Shooting hand?

    Either way I'm sorry to hear that. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

    Ugh! That really stinks! You must have really hit the ground hard because you have dense bones!
    Get better quick!
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Man, that sucks. I know how Texas folk get easily confused by ice when it's not located in a tea glass! I should have warned you; it took me a while to realize how slippery that stuff is.

    Hope you heal up soon!

    Sympathy to you. Heal well and heal fast.

    Now would be a good time to practice weapons manipulation on your non shooting hand with your EDC.

    Um... yeah. And other 'personal' chores take some distinct learning, as well.

    Hope that heals quickly!

    Ouch! Sorry about that Doodle.

    buttoning your jeans will be the least of your problems. Wait till its time to get off the toilet. That'll be an interesting exercise.
