|just before three stitches|
Dr. J and his staff were amazed that J4 didn't even flinch during two lidocaine shots. He stayed perfectly still and even smiled! I know this little one is one tough cookie, but even I was shocked! He didn't have to be wrapped up like a little burrito after all.
He got three stitches and is good as new. Little bit did tell me afterwards that the shots did hurt, but J4 didn't want Dr. J to know. J4 didn't want to hurt his feelings. Isn't that the sweetest.
Mr. Michael, J4's nurse, gave him a superhero band-aid while I was on the phone at the front desk trying to find out if J4 was up to date on his tetanus. Michael told me later that J4 told him that God is the biggest super hero of them all! Mr. Michael and the Doc thought that was pretty awesome, too.
We got a Chick-fil-A ice cream cone on the way home and are now watching a Jeff Corwin episode.
Love my little guy, and I'm praying that his wound will continue to be pain-free through the healing process.
