It was only an arm and I was only 2 yrs old. It happened in one day and was over. They was no lingering suffering or issues. I've grown up fine and had a great time along the way.
Today I'm retired from 30 years as a photojournalist and next week I hope to go cavediving with friends (I'm the only fullcave certified diver in the world with one arm).
So things could have been much worse.
