The last week in April, I was on my way to a Relief Society activity. Joe wasn't home yet, so I asked Mark Bigelow if he wouldn't mind watching the kids for about 20 minutes, until Joe could come pick them up, and then Terra and I could go together. I was loading the kids up in the car, when a big gust of wind came swooping through and slammed my car door shut... on my hand. I gasped, and looked down, and saw something that disturbed me greatly!!!
My ring was completely mangled. It was as if someone took a nice round hula hoop and just stepped on it. Flattened and broken. My finger hurt, but I realized the platinum saved my hand! Thanks Joey! Never thought the ring you picked out would keep me from MASSIVE PAIN! Here's a picture I had to take for insurance. This was after we took pliers to make it somewhat of a circle again, so my purple finger wouldn't fall off.
So sad. Apparently it's fixable...but the jeweler who cut it off said this was a very first for him! He'd never heard of anything like it. Maybe I'll get it back on my finger someday!
