The Hand: A Pictorial Story

How important is a hand?


A hand helps you hold your phone…


Two hands can hold a ring bearer’s pillow with wedding rings


Which in turn get placed on the hands of the people getting wed…


Sometimes bad things can happen to a hand…


like when you slip on the ice and break it in several places.

But a good orthopedic surgeon can put it back together with the right training and a steel plate in an Ann Arbor, Michigan hospital.



Fortunately he had the good presence of mind to pull his wedding ring off right after he landed on the ice, realizing what he had done and preventing the ring from needing to be cut off.

Surgery was Thursday.  It hurts.  But in time it will be as good as new. 

Bring on the ice pack! Poor Loren.
