Stiches or Special Doctor Bandaids

Yesterday we were ready for a fun filled friday evening as a family. We started out by going to go play tennis. We were so excited to go play, especially Katelyn. We got to the tennis courts and opened the gate to get in. Katelyn ran in and the gate stopped and she ran right into the gate latch. Here is a picture of what type of gate latch it was




Of course there was blood gushing all over...luckily we have a first aid kit in the van and we were able to get her cleaned up and try to put a butterfly bandaid on it. We weren't sure if she needed stiches...but I decided to call the doctor and set up an appointment to get it checked out. We were able to get into the after hours clinic at 7:10. We were already halfway to AF so we stayed at the courts and Daddy and his friend Brandon played some tennis while we waited for our appointment. Katelyn was such a trooper and even played some tennis with Mommy while we waited. We went into the doctor and he said she needed stiches. Katelyn hates stiches (she had them before) and was freaking out. Once she got the shot she asked if she was just getting a bandaid and we said stiches and she started freaking out again. So I told her she was getting a special doctor bandaids and she sat still for all 5 stiches without any problems! She did awesome!


Here is pictures of her with the stiches

She is so silly!
All was ok cuz we got to go get a toy after because she did so awesome and didn't fight the doctor! She is a trooper! Hopefully because we got the stiches her beautiful face will heal and not scar. The doctor did a fantastic job and took great care in what he was doing to do all he could so it wouldn't scar.
