Like Magic said, I am fine but yes sore.
And I mean sore. 
All Kirk and I did today was clean, grease, adjust and other maintenance on the mill. I did sand and put in 2 bow ties on a RO Slab.
I was just taking it easy and doing some things that really needs to be done. Sometimes life works that way....you get slowed down for a reason.
A bunch of yíall called and texted me....
Thanks.....sometimes things happen to give you time to talk to your family.

DanG POSTON, that hurts just thinking about it. I sincerely hope you are ok and healing quickly. Sometimes a guy (or goat) just has to slow down and be careful. You and others here have been giving me a healthy respect for working around my saw, expecially the powerhead and blade.

It is surprising how reading this stuff makes you think and more careful. ;D

Well I have a Vets appointment for this Monday ay 8:15 am.

The big knot on my belly is getting bigger it seems.
I'm having a little pain in my Gall Bladder area.

If I pick something up like a 1 x 6 x 10 Pine I'm fine.
If I try to pick up a 4x4x10 Pine I feel like my guts are coming out.
I can go to Walmart and I don't think anything is wrong with me.

I think something tore.
I'll update after I know something.
Y'all say a teeny tiny prayer for me that they DON'T have to open 1 of my stomachs up.

Ugg - I hope it goes well my friend. Keep us posted.  Of course your mention of going to Walmart and thinking nothing is wrong with you is not really a fair comparison.  I ALWAYS feel quite normal after a trip to our local Walmart.   :D

I go along with the three things that Magicman said. And if that Jeff guy is right you better get a good vet and have them open you up and fix the problem.

For some reason, I am just now seeing this thread.  Going to the Vet is the smart thing to do.

My appointment was for 8:15 but they didnít open until 12 because of ice on the roads,
Had an MRI done and I have a bruised Aorta and Liver.
Goong back for blood work for my liver next Week. 
The doc squeezed my knot on my belly and I almost passed out. Told me to keep an eye on it and if it didnít start getting smaller he would send me to a Surgeon.
Told me not to pick up anything heavier than a fork!
So thatís it for now.
Thanks yíall

Glad you reported back in. I thought they may have sent you off to the BBQ pit. Sounds like this could be pretty serious. I hope it will sort itself out without surgery. I don't know how many times I've picked up a stick to stop the idle side wheel the as you did. I do beleive I'll be changing my ways in the future.

 Serious injury , glad it wasn't worse. Yield not to temptation , follow the docs instruction. Customer of mine had rotator cuff surgery on right shoulder , didn't listen to doc , kept working with it only days after. No problem. A few months later he had left shoulder repaired , did the same. Major mistake , now he has serious problem and is really out of commission. Use the little fork!
 Speedy recovery!

Yikes!
The aorta is a useful thing. About the size of a garden hose and not an optional assesory. And the liver is kinda useful too.
That Dang sticker came close to doing you a severe insult!
Good advice for you from all of the wise men that have posted.
I'm with Ellmoe,  limit yourself to the fondue fork for a good period of time.
Best wishes, and get well soon from Way Up Yonder.
