Yesterday Evening my daughter smashed her finger in our door coming on to our porch! This door is very heavy, and it closed very hard...well she was bleeding all over the place, and wouldn't let me clean it to look at it, so I did not know the severity of the situation. Her dad decided to put a bandaid on it... I wanted to rush her to the ER. So after he got the bandaid on, I said "I'm taking her to the hospital" he totally yelled at me, and said it isn't that serious!!! Well I went anyway, he stayed home because he did not want to waste an evening at the ER! She ended up being hurt really bad, her nail was completely detached at the base. :( They had to pry the skin back, push the nail back into place and put 2 stitches in it... I feel so bad for the little girl! She will lose her nail as her new nail grows back. And it will take 3 to 5 months for her nail to be completely back. Can you believe this jackass??

I also had my finger smashed it the car door, bleeding, etc. No ER. It hurt and my nail is messed up, this was the early 80's and my parents didn't do hospitals unless you are close to death. I think she would have been fine without an ER visit, 2 stitches? That's nothing, it would have healed on it's own soon enough. It's not like her finger fell off. But I'm like your hubby, I wouldn't think it was that serious either, it was just a nail.
