"Mother thought I didn't have a hand any more"

views: 951

I was wounded in the basement of my own house during the bombardment which happened two years ago. Now I have to learn to write with my left hand – my right hand doesn't work well. I can't feel my fingers. I got a surgical scar on my arm when the fragment was removed.

Mother thought I didn't have a hand any more

There were a lot of people from the whole  house in the basement. They were hiding from the shelling. There was an explosion – fragments from the mine flew there. There were a lot of injured people. My father found me and my mother. Mother thought I didn't have a hand any more.

I lost my hand sensitivity. Thus, I must do motor skills exercises and take massage courses.
