Did you cut the wires a couple of inches from the connector so you can splice them back together with solder and heatshrink tubing?

You really need to use the correct crimping tool for those connectors, something like this: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103683

Next time, consider doing only one wire and see how it works out before doing any more. If you choose a redundant wire, like a ground wire, and something goes wrong with the crimp, you may not even have to repair it (but do cover the bare wire with heatshrink tubing).

Better yet, don't do any more tonsil transplants. (not necessary or beneficial, unlike kidney transplants)
