Well !! Good news so far. DD's surgery is done and she is able, ever so slightly, but is moving / bending that finger...finally ! The surgeon on Tues. (6/18) was able to remove some scar tissue from the one tendon that will bend the middle knuckle area. However, the last joint of the finger the surgeon said that the tendon had broke apart again and he could not get it to stretch back enough to reconnect (it had been over a year). So...this is better than "no use of that finger at all." It is her ring finger on the left hand.
