They got to hear the doctor -- not Katie's regular pediatrician, because he doesn't do this particular operation on children so young -- as she walked out and asked "What's next?"
The doctor picked up the folder. "Suture removal? On a two year old?"
By the time she got back to see us, her game face was on. She got the mega-magnifying goggles and the portable lamp so she could get a good look at the stitches as she removed them. I held Katie's hands and the nurse held Katie's head during the process. Only the last stitch was particularly difficult. And once again, Katie was a very good and very brave little girl.
I think the doctor was relieved.
And so was I. :)
