Glass went through my finger! (graphic pic)

I was fixing my wedding picture frame. Carrying it back from the kitchen to the wall in living room, when my crazy cat ran full speed and right under my feet. I fell to the ground and when i stood up, i had a 2 inch wide piece of glass going in one side of my ring finger and coming out the other!!!!! Luckily my husband was home and rushed me to the ER where i sat from 9:30pm till 2:30 am with this piece of glass in my finger.Finally got it pulled out and finished with 3 stitches. Now i have to follow up with a hand surgeon as it grazed the bone. Every nurse and doctor said they never saw glass literally go through a finger. Luckily i had taken my rings to the jeweler yesterday afternoon to be checked and they found loose diamonds so they were not on my finger. I also had to get a tetnas shot! My 2 yr old wants to put bandaids on it and my 10 month old is teething like crazy! It's going to be a long week! 


Has anyone else ever had this happen? (glass intirely through a body part) Or am I really that unlucky?

You had to sit for 5 hours with glass in your finger. Gosh! 

Glad you are ok now. Good luck with the healing and the kids.

Thank you. Yes I kept asking the nurse what the hold up was and she told me that they were saving me for last (their shift ended at 3am apparently). I was furious!!

I was stupid and slammed my hand on the darn thing. I put the needle in the arm of the couch and forgot. I slammed my hand down on it when I was using the armrests to get up.....ouchie!!! I've never touched a needle since..
