I got Stitches. . .

C cut his finger eleven days ago. He was cutting out a notch on a piece of tile, and tried to catch it when it fell, so the result was him trying to find an after hours clinic while I scrambled to figure out what our new insurance company covered. The doctor told him to come back in ten days to have the stitches removed. Last night was day ten, so I came into the kitchen to see C set up with an operating station consisting of a magnifying glass, tweezers, and a full-sized pair of Fiskers, working away at his stitches.

I offered a few additional "surgical" tools to make the procedure go a little more smoothly, then poured the hydrogen peroxide while C watched with delight as it bubbled in his wound. I know, you aren't supposed to pour it, but it is so much fun to watch!

At any rate, he can now swim again, and with his recent ankle injury healed, he just might be able to do that triathalon in two weeks after all!
