Here Goes Nothing

The day for surgery has finally come.
I am excited and a little nervous too.
Yesterday the surgical nurse called and after our conversation she told me no jewelry.
What??  I can't get my wedding ring and diamond off my fingers anymore.
So on the way home from work yesterday, I stopped at a local jewelry store and had them cut off.
  I haven't had those rings off my fingers for 28 years!!


My cut rings

I was OK with getting the Iolite ring cut off but for some reason cutting off my wedding band was really hard for me.
I plan on getting them resized though when I am healed.
I have diamonds from my mom, grandma and great grandma so I am thinking about having them all set together.
Could be a cool ring!

OK folks this blog will be quiet for a few days at least. I'm home sometime tomorrow.
I will put up a post when I can to let you know how it went.
I am looking forward to this being done and beginning a new era in my life.
Children are wonderful but the birthing process wreaks havoc, LOL.

So until I return, make lots of cool things for me to be inspired by!!

You must be blogging while waiting for your surgery. I have been trying to catch up on my reading to see what you are having surgery for and have not yet. My prayers are with you that what ever it is the recovery is quick and not much or any pain involved.

Good Luck!

Good luck Pam. I'm thinking you're having the same surgery I just had on Friday. Piece of cake except for that first time getting up. After that it's all uphill.

All the best with your surgery.
I can't get my wedding ring off either, last time I had surgery, they just covered it with surgical tape. Shame you had to get your cut. Sandy.

i'm still trying to convince my husband of the benefits of getting our fingers tattooed...he's not warming up with that idea. i might do it without him :)
