I am glad that you still have all your digits.
I have only been in this hobby off and on for 5 years, and I still consider myself very much a novice. I did something in the beginning that really brought safety home to me. I don't remember what I was cutting, or even what the project was, but I was cutting some small pieces on my table saw, WITHOUT A PUSHSTICK (yes ... that is how green and uninformed I was at the time!), and my thumb touched the blade. Luckily, all that came off was about 1/8" of the fleshy part on the tip of my thumb, it has healed, and I still have all 10 digits, but there is no feeling in that part of my thumb.
Years later, I still think often about how fortunate I was that that was all that happened. And it is a constant reminder to me to always think about safety first.
I am confident that you, like me, will be more vigilant around your saws in he future. It will be a very long time before you forget about this incident.
