Prior to Tuesday evening's ER visit, I went ahead and asked my husband to cut off the ring that my parents gave me almost thirty years ago. Even without the swelling from my injury, it couldn't have been removed without wire cutters.Sweet Sixteen gift

I expect to visit a jeweler and have it fixed up good-as-new after my hand is all better.
