“I say we’re about 95% [healed] — which if that’s as good as it’s going to get, Rachael, I’ll take it,” Buddy shared in a sneak peek for an upcoming episode of The Rachael Ray Show.

Last September, Buddy severely injured his hand while trying to fix the pinsetter at his home bowling alley after it malfunctioned.

After undergoing five reconstructive hand surgeries and physical therapy, Buddy‘s hand has steadily improved.

“It’s definitely been an amazing ride,” Buddy continued in his interview with Rachael. “The fact that I was able to still do what I love, like doing that last seasons of Buddy vs. Duff, it was amazing because of the fact that I could still do it.”

Rachael then praised Buddy for his endurance during his recovery.

“You know, once you get over a certain age, 95%, we’ll take it for anything,” Rachael joked. “Our memory, our body, our back — if we’re at 95%, we’re good.”

“Amen,” Buddy replied.
