        No, that's not the meaning of fatally wounded.

        No, not for sympathy.  No, not for honor.

        He carries the pen because he does not want to embarrass
        those who would  shake his right hand only to discover
        that his arm and hand are disabled.  The pen is a visual
        signal that his hand is occupied.
