Thank you to everyone who expressed concern for Chase. He's doing fine. The stitches were supposed to come out on Friday afternoon, but after the doctor looked at it, she decided to give it one more night to heal. So bright and early, Saturday morning, we went back and the stitches were finally removed. He's relieved. They were itchy. Here are some before and after shots.
There are seven teeny tiny stitches. He was bruised a bit from the shower-head hitting him. Everyone is afraid of the shower-head now. This photo was taken by Chase on his iPod, so it's a little grainy. Sorry about that.
All that is visible is a tiny scar. The shine in both pictures is the antibacterial ointment. Considering it has only been about a week since the injury, I think he looks fantastic! I'm very thankful to the ER physician. He did a great job.
