Stitches out & working stitches

After a busy morning (babysitting my friend's son so she could go have another U/S & then play & lunch @ Chuck E Cheese) we went to the hospital on post to have the wee one's stitches removed.

You'd think that it would be painless since the whole ER visit was horrific, right?

Well, you'd be wrong.

Her Doctor had one of the medics working with him to take out the stitches (one working the scissors and/or blade & the other holding the light & stitches) & me holding her down. The 1st 2 (or top 2 however you choose to see them) were knotted so close to the skin that it took 3 changes of hands to get them snipped. She was screaming & crying & fighting me just about the whole time---poor peanut! The last 3 came out much easier thankfully! She got 2 Dora stickers & then we were off to the PX to pick out a treat. We came home with the Princess Dora & Perrito doll.

Thank God she took a nap when we got home as the living room was a mess (toys all over) & Mommy needed to rest. We took Libby out to play ball afterwards & then played on the swing & jungle gym.

Tonight I'm working on my 1st of 3 Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono. This one is yellow (plymouth fantasy naturale in bright yellow) for Kelli's bebe due in May. They're having a boy so the sweater will be yellow, bibs & washcloths/burp cloths will be ablue & a varigated yarn. The other 2 will also be for boys & will be made w/ the same yarn (different colors---thank you!)

We're hearing rumors that Hunter's TDY will be cut short & they'll be boots on the ground by 15 March. *sigh* It's our 4th deployment (3rd to Iraq) in 5 yrs. I really should be used to it by now & in some respects I am. Having him home IS a luxury. It's something we don't take for granted. It drives him crazy when he is home because I feel compelled to do something on the weekends as a family & he wants to lay low. Maybe one day we'll get our act together! LOL
