Stitches are out!!!

Took Colton in to the pediatrician this morning to have his stitches taken out. The lovely ER doctor was nice enough to make them extremely tight and so close to the skin that one of the stitch knots was inside his lip--GREAT!! The ARNP that we saw was nice enough to let me hold him this time instead of strapping him down to the bed. Of course he was still not happy with me holding his head still, but he did much better than he did at the ER. She got the first two out with minimal bleeding, but the third that was inside his lip, she had to use a scalpel to make a tiny incision in his lip to get the knot out. Once she was done, I gave him his binky and some raisins and he stopped crying. What an ordeal. I am glad that is OVER.

On a much happier note, I received my Pay it Forward gift from Carly over at http://obsessedclothdiaperingmama.blogspot.com/. It was so nice of her to do. The drawing pad and markers were an instant hit and the bibs are SO CUTE. I was able to snap a couple pictures before little man ran off to do some "coloring." The pictures are not the greatest and I don't it accurately shows how cute the bibs really are. Thank you very much Carly!!!! :O)


Photobucket That is Colton's hand about to "grab and run"!!


  1. So Glad you like it:) My Little one loves those markers. The first pictures Baby colors are always keepers:) Glad Colton is feeling better:)

  2. I'm glad he's doing much better and that his stitches are finally out! Love the bibs, too :)

  3. Getting stitches out is never fun! Cole had to have staples removed from his head awhile back and the boy was seriously upset...can't say I blame him!

    Hope your little guy is feeling better!
