yesterday, s8 and i headed back to the hospital. he was more than ready to go. i’m not sure if it was because his desire to get the stitches out was greater than his fear of the getting them out or if he was maybe counting on a repeat of last week – which ever it was – it worked out well for me.
here’s the finger on the way to the hospital.
here’s s8 and the finger in the waiting room of the e.r. this e.r. is every e.r. patients dream. no waiting.
3 minutes after he set down we were in a room and the nurses were hard at work using the best equipment available.
and 7 minutes – and $5 u.s.d. – later s8’s finger was headed home. looking pretty good.
the wound looks much better than i thought it ever would. i’ve secretly been worried that the scar we’ve been promising s8 won’t really come to be. and he’s really, really, really hoping for a frankenstein type mark. i might be investing in some red permanent marker and doing some late night scar drawing.
