I'm really sorry to hear about your accident.  Hope you have a fast recovery and there isn't any long-term pain as you mentioned.  Considering the situation it could have been a lot worse if you would have gotten your face burnt with no one around.  

If I was closer I be willing to help you out and take "your car" to the car shows. :biggrin:

Get well and try to stay safe.

John, I'm so sorry to have read about this unfortunate accident, but so glad you were able to get the treatment (finally) to get you on the mend. I really hope there are no long term complications. Please keep us up on your recovery.

I am glad you are here to tell us the story. I am very sorry and hope you get well soon. That is certainly a combination of a lot of things going wrong at the same time.

The quick thinking and getting into the lake probably helped a lot.

 I hope you have a speedy recovery and do not have more long term pain.

Thanks for all the kind words guys, very much appreciated! Been hurting pretty bad last couple days after they took out the staples. And getting another prescription for pain meds was a bit of a pain, lol, but I got it taken care of. Anyway, thanks again!

OUCH ! ! !  :classic_huh:  .. That doesn't sound like a good day--
A good job we (from these forums)  weren't at your house on 4th July-- otherwise you would have gone to hospital wrapped in oily lint cloths, dynamat and duct tape :whistling:

I hope all heals well and quick...

OMG!!  That hurts just to read about it.  I can't imagine how bad it was for you.  I'm glad to hear you are on the mend, and hope you recover quickly.

Sorry to hear about your accident. Burns are never fun to deal with. Get well quick. I have heard good things about that hospital.  Since that the hospital is in  Detroit they have some of the best ER doctors around. They have seen it all!

WOW!!! Sir you are a very tough MAN!! Praying for you that you heal quickly and make a full and complete recovery.

Just remember John Wick didn’t kill all those people for a random car. It was a Mustang

It sounds like you really had your wits about you during the accident. Sorry to hear it happened, and I also with you a speedy recovery with no long term pain.

Thanks for more well wishes guys.  I actually took the Mach out for a drive to make me feel better, and it worked! Best I felt all day.
