Toe For Thumb

How would you feel about having a toe for one of your thumbs?

It’s not a choice most of us have to worry about … but one cattle worker in WA had to … after losing his thumb in a farm accident.

Despite attempts to save it … they couldn’t reattach the thumb.

Then doctors told 20 year old Zac Mitchell they could put one of his big toes where the thumb used to be. Because life without a thumb is harder than life without a toe.

He wasn’t thrilled about the idea but decided to undergo the procedure ... which is described as 'delicate'…

The good news is Zac recovering well … and doctors say he should eventually be able to return to his hobby of bull riding.

Which means the procedure gets a big ‘thumbs up’ … or is that toe…?

Here’s another success story…
