My granddaughter got the stitches out, but still won't be able to walk without crutches for a while. The doctor put back in some small butterfly stitches that she said would fall out in about a week. She goes back next Thursday to have the swelling and bruises assessed again. But to me.....it looks soooo painful! My daugher sent this pic to me she took in the doctor's office after the stitches were taken out.
