The Gate Verses the Finger




 Cal meet with danger at the hands of our gate and its unique custom latch. As Cal headed out to leave the other day. It started to rain. He had one hand on the gate latch and turned fast to check if the back bedroom door was open. In one quick movement he slipped and fell. His ring finger caught on the gate latch  and he went down!!!! 36 stitches later and a bent ring he is resting comfortable at home with the help of oxycoden .We are relieved he still has his finger. What a freak accident !!!They warn about men  and the dangers of wearing rings !!!

Hope he mends soon! My husband did the same thing and broke his finger low at the nuckle at the same time.... requiring surgery. A little girl at my daughter's school lost TWO fingers when slammed in a gate at the end of the school year. Who knew danger lurked in innocent gates.

OMG Julie! I can't even begin to imagine the pain and the shock! 36 stitches- it must have nearly ripped his finger off!
Will he have full use of it when it heals?

Oh Julie!!!! So glad to hear that Cal still has his finger...he is VERY lucky! Years ago I worked in an Occupational Therapist's office that specialized in hands. I saw TONS of the worst injuries imaginable that involved rings. Yikes!

Sending your Cal good healthy engery. :-)

Hugs,
Michelle

YIKES!
yeah in theater most guys don't wear their rings, which is upsetting when you find out they are married!

even though it didn't work for kathy griffin, i'm gonna get matching tats with my future hubby for this very reason! well, once he arrives on the scene, i'll discuss it with him.

sending healing thoughts!!!
