|X-ray on left:|
Slight fracture ... simple cast ... fast recovery.
X-ray on right:
Spoke too soon ... reposition metacarpal ... attach pins ... surgery early next week.
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.
I expect to visit a jeweler and have it fixed up good-as-new after my hand is all better.
