Re: Magic & Arthritis

Both of my wrists are shot with arthritis, the Dr. said they are too far gone for any help other than to wear wrist braces. I can take them off for short periods of time.

Re: Paul Daniels damages hand in powersaw accident

The bandages are off. He has feeling in all fingers and all is healing well. The left ring finger lost about half an inch. He's possibly going to fit a prosthetic tip if he feels he needs it.
