Follow up visit

I shall be brave and let doctor see

JE had the follow-up visit with the specialist yesterday. I thought he was merely probing the scab with the tweezers, but he pulled it out (hmm why ah? Shouldn't it be left alone?). He said the wound is gaping a bit and that's why he'd recommended to put a stitch in it. Oh dear, my heart fell. If JE has a scar because of my choice not to have her put under GA, I'd be feeling bad for a long time. Then doc said it has filled up inside and healing in children is good, so it should be fine.

I'm hoping the doc is only trying to justify his initial recommendation and there will be no noticeable scar. :(

JE was a trooper, sat without protest. Lifted her chin when told to also. But she cried for a while after he pulled out the scab.

The wound doesn't look too great at the moment. I wouldn't have given it much thought if it'd been anywhere else. But on the face...

Next step is to take JE to a dentist. Will have to wait for her mouth ulcers to heal first.


  1. Jo Ern does look very brave in the pic. Here's wishing her a speedy recovery and "no scar"...The ulcers must be really painful. *Hugs for Jo Ern*

  2. She's a brave girl. Will pray for her and your family for a fast recovery too.
    You stay strong too, ok?
