I took Ellie to the Dr. to get her stitches out today. She sure didn't like that! It's not that it hurt so much...but rather being held down...that she didn't like so much. She even cried when the nurse came back to put a sticker on her shirt--as soon as the nurse got close, she balled! Poor girl has been traumatized in the last week. :( BUT, the incision looks a ton better now! Her ears are still gooped up with blood (yes, that is the medical term for it.) So I am putting drops in twice a day to moisten the blood and hopefully clean out the ear.
I will try to post pictures as soon as I get a chance....I've just been running back and forth from the hospital to piano lessons to pick up Ellie to home, etc. I did get a chance to go for a walk today with Ellie and my nephew, Carter. It was so beautiful out! Ellie is such a teaser, though, because while Carter is falling asleep, she is next to him trying to hug his neck, touch his face, pull his hair...anything to keep him awake! So instead of speaking "sternly" to her, I always have to stop the stroller so that she will see my "mean" face and know that she is being naughty. (yes, I do have a mean face...I'm sure she's terrified of it.) :)
