Mini-me’s stitches are out! Here is the after shot….
He is definitely going to have a small scar there, but it will be hidden by hair for the most part and will add character to his face.
Do you think we went all the way back to Urgent Care to have the stitches taken out? Expose ourselves to all those pig flu germs again? Not on your life!
We put Mini-me up on the counter and I looked at the stitches pretty closely. The sutures moved pretty easily in the skin and I could see that I could get a good pair of scissors under each stitch without any problem, so it took me about a minute to snip the stitches and then pull them out. For those that are about to faint at this, if there had been any sign of infection or if the sutures were so deep I would have had to dig for them, we would have trotted right back to urgent care and exposed ourselves to whatever was floating around that day…..
Mini-me had no problems with the procedure at all…never even winced once. Big Brother on the other hand, got grossed out just when we described it to him!
