The 5 day check-up...

Be Warned! These images are graphic.
Parental caution is adviced.

_______________________________

So after the intital sting of having the ankle seriously injured, it came time to get the bandage changed and see the first five days of progress. This became a family affair. It is very common for the entire family to come to the hospital. So the Watkins showed up in similar fashion. Nancy driving, Amber translating, Matt being the safety net should I fall. So here we are Nancy and myself, with Matt and Amber, in a commanding presence for the ER room, along side the hospital staff, all of whom Nancy dwarfed.


The final result...

So far so good. No sign of infection. The staples are to be removed in about a week. The swelling at this point is normal.

uhm, I think that using a car may be a pain, but now I think that the motto has now proven to be just as much as a pain.
