Tonight Doug decided it was time to take out his massively wide stitches he got about a week ago when playing with the table saw. The boys have been very, very interested in his thumb all week and taking inventory of if has healed yet. So this combination of events led to a little preschooler surgery in the kitchen tonight.
Doug gave each boy a hemostat and then snipped the stitch and let them each have a tug and pull one out. (Pictures to come when I can get them off the camera)
I have to say I thought this was pretty brave on his part - and the boys thought it was very neat. (Gabe wanted to actually keep the nasty, crusty stitches - but luckily we convinced him it was not a good idea.)
