A Year

It’s been a year since I had to take Kylie to the ER.

A year since my brave little girl got her first stitches.

A year since this picture was taken.

That was right after her stitches. She amazed me.

This was the next morning. Man, that thing was brutal.

A couple of days later. I was really worried her beautiful face would never be the same.

Here she is tonight, one year since she cut her face. Her scar is almost unnoticeable. And she is still SO beautiful! But her face isn’t the same as it was before. Look at her adorable dimple when she smiles!

Or when she does this…

We have put scar treatment on that thing almost every day, and plan to continue until the bottle is gone. And she wears sunscreen anytime she goes outside. But I love her little scar and I hope she always sees it and knows how brave and beautiful it makes her.

Kylie continues to amaze me with this whole healing process. After the first day she would say “Owie feels all better. No need band-aid anymore.” But I still made her wear it for sleeping and eating. I loaded up all three kids and took them to the doctor yesterday for her to get the stitches out. It was totally a repeat of getting them done. She didn’t cry, squirm, or even flinch when he was working on her. He commented how patient and brave she was while he was digging out all the little leftover pieces. It does seem to be healing up pretty nicely and even though there are those close to us who are hoping for a way to tell the girls apart, I love her little face so much I hope she can have little or no scar at the end of all this.

Day 1

Day 4

Day 6- with stitches

Day 6- no more stitches

Dr. Downey also loved that she wore her doctor coat to her appointment today. Maybe after this she will consider a future in medicine?
