Holy Cow,
My heart is RACING!
My reset arrived THIS MORNING! Way earlier than I expected! Oh how I love James Allen right now. I was getting ready to walk out the door to hand therapy, and the Fed Ex man was here. I thought surely it was DH''s contacts or something... but THERE it WAS!
And oh, how I love her!

Okay, be patient with me. I''m going to post the whole sorted story one pic at a time.

Okay,
I may be the only PSer who doesn''t know how to post a link, so I''ll quickly tell my tale through pictures.

Way back in November I was walking my two sweet dogs, when something in the tall grass scared them. Being the total scaredy dogs that they are, they ran. Stupidly, I was texting my DH and not paying attention, so when they ran, they took my finger with them.

So, I had stitches, finger didn''t heal. Then found out it was broken. Finger didn''t heal. Then found out (after finally cutting my rings off) that I''d also torn a ligament and needed surgery.

Here I am, day after surgery. (Surgery happened in March.)

You poor thing! Have your fingers healed completely after the surgery? Do you wear the same ring size? Your cut ring looks so pitiful but I''m glad that you have a new one that you love! Can''t wait for pics!

Thanks Heb,
No, my fingers are still healing. Unfortunatley I don''t wear the same ring size, and sizing is going to be a problem. This baby is two whole sizes larger than my old ring.

You''ll have to forgive the wrinkled appearance of my finger. I just took off my bandage (keeps the swelling down.)
But here''s the finger shot. I CANNOT believe how much bigger and brighter my little .88 looks with its new halo!

These are the darlings that caused this mess in the first place.
They''re doing what they do best in this shot.

Sadly, it''s WAY too big, and I''ll have to send it back to be risized, but I plan to enjoy it for a while first.

After hearing of your story of how your rings was cut off your finger, I might think twice about wearing my w-set to work everyday, I work at an animal hospital, in the kennels, walking dogs. But on a lighter note, I will say that you brought a tear to my eye, from the story, cause I couldn''t imagine breaking my finger let alone the wedding finger and then having the rings cut off, but what also brought a tear to my eye was the beautiful outcome of your ring NOW.!!!!! Ba Blam is all I can say. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Maisie,
I must say that your beautiful spit shank made me question my choice and reconsider!
Yours is to die for!
But I am happy (for the moment, lol!)

Buffy,
It worked out all right in the end for me, didn''t it?

The stupidest things can happen at the stupidest times. It really was
just a freak accident.

No problem, sweetie . . . it was my pleasure! Especially after all the hand-holding you''ve been doing with me and my earring project! LOL!

By the way, I know I''ve told you this before, but your girls are just adorable! What are their names? The darker colored one looks a lot like my boy Caesar!
