Gianna's stitches

We have had a rough time since the baby was born...between flu, colds, allergies, teething of molars, adjusting to a new baby, 3 am feedings, overtime with work, and of course Gianna's stitches.

She has just finished a bath on Saturday morning, went into her room wrapped in a towel, tripped and fell eye first into a knob on her dresser. We went into MEO, and it took Jes, myself, the doctor and a nurse holding her down to get a local INTO the wound...she was was awful... She finally cut loose just before the rest of the local was in. The doctor thought it would be okay, but she definitely felt the two stitches closest to her nose. Poor was just horrible. She didn't even wanting us to change a bandaid. This was the first picture a couple days after the took Jes almost an hour to get the bandaid off to get her into the tub (wanting to make sure it wasn't infected), because of the association with the pain from getting the stitches. It then took us another hour to take the stitches out a week after they went it. Jes and I did it ourselves, for fear that she would HATE going to the doctor ever again if we had to go back for the removal. However, she put up QUITE the fight...

They are now gone, thank goodness, but it also took a while to wean from the bandaid...she still talks about the injury frequently...yuck...
