I recall when Karin (my daughter) was about 2 years old, she put her ring finger in the door frame of one of the heavy doors in the Police house, when the wind slammed the door shut on hr finger! Her finger was hanging by a thread of skin. We rushed her to our Doctore Tamesvary, who sewed it back together and it healed perfectly! Sally (my wife) had nightmares for years about Karin at the altar, holding her hand out minus her ring finger, for her husband to put on the wedding ring!
