Stitches

For the third time in less than a month, I found myself back at the InstaCare. After Isaac's bruised elbow and Joseph's constipation that we thought might be appendicitis, it was Kate's turn this time. She ran into the corner of a table and got a gash that is between 1/4" to 1/2" long, just below her nose. She had to get four stitches that will hopefully prevent the scarring from being too bad. The doctor and nurse kept commenting on how calm she was and she held perfectly still during the procedure. The only time she really twitched was when the thread tickled her nose!

Kate got a sucker and a Thomas sticker for her troubles. Poor kid...

Oh poor little girl! I can't believe how brave she is. I guess with all those brothers, she has to be. :o)
