A Tiny Miracle

Okay this story may make you a little squeamish.  If you faint easy maybe you shouldn't read this.  Seriously.  It is well worth the read, trust me.  I am posting this for the blog http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/.  The sweet lady that cooks for the homeless people wonderful food every day.  She injured her finger recently.  I wanted to tell her this story but wanted to wait til she healed a bit.
This story is about Goose, the recent birthday girl.  Her Mama does not like me telling this story.  But, I like stories about miracles.
Goose was two years old.  Her big sister, Hope accidentally shut Goose's ring finger tip in the bedroom door jam.  My son was home with the girls and mom had left to run errands.  He heard an awful scream and ran to the girls.  Well, needless to say there was alot of blood and he could tell that part of her fingertip was gone, well the fingertip was gone.  (from the crease down)  He called 911 because he couldn't drive her to the hospital, apply pressure and get two girls in car seats.  Luckily mom got home as the squad arrived and went with Goose.  My son cleaned up the blood and (sorry) found the finger tip....promise it gets better).  He called Grammy and Grampy to come help with Hope and he headed to the hospital. 
At the hospital they sewed the finger tip back on.  They said it probably wouldn't take but it was the best band aide you could have.  Then later they made a special mold for a cast for her hand to her elbow that she wore for 2 months.  It was made of plaster but you wrapped it on with ace bandage.  They were to remove it and clean it daily.  They took really good care of it.  The tip turned black and was dying.  One day the tip fell off.  Are you ready for this.  Here is the MIRACLE..her finger tip had grown back.  Yes, it did.  She had a nail and everything.  There was a little line on each side of the finger where it had been cut off.  Have you ever heard of this happening.  Although it is a small miracle I still think it counts.  It was her left hand and her ring finger.  We were so sad for her.  Then we were just filled with joy.
Now if you made it through this story here is a (((((HUG)))))) for you.  If you passed out, I am so sorry.

Hi Debby, It made me think of when my oldest was about 4 he shut his finger in the back of a screen door. It didn't completely take the end of the finger off. The doctor did a great job of sewing it back on. You can see the two little indention on the side of his finger. His fingernail grew back. I know that they say those things happen and I do believe in miracles. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

What a neat story!! When I was two, my toe was cut off in an exercise bike, and my mom still can't handle hearing or telling the story either. I don't mind my missing toe at all though....but I wouldn't complain if it decided to grow back. Very miraculous!

That wasn't too gross. The healing properties of the human body are amazing.

What a great story. I didn't faint, but my legs went a bit funny.
The same sort of thing happened to my mum when she was small. Her finger tip came off when it was accidentally shut in a car door (the heavy 1940's type of car). Alas, hers didn't grow back and she still has a deformed finger tip. So glad this story had a happy ending. xx
