Reilly had her stitches out yesterday. She was very excited to have them out, and happily went to the doctor and LOVED waiting in the chair. Everything took a turn, however, when the nurse came in, put her gloves on and grabbed the scissors. :-( Reilly hid her nose! The nurse left, and when she did, Reilly decided she was going to brave - so we called her back in. Yep, you guessed it - same routine.

It took an hour and a half, and a couple tries. Finally, the doctor had me and two nurses hold her down. I had her legs, one of them had her arms and the other had her head. He got them out within about 2 minutes. She cried the entire time, screamed actually at the top of her lungs.

She kept crying when he was done, out to the car and all the way to McDonalds ;-) She was screaming "WHY DID YOU LET THEM HURT ME AND CUT MY NOSE?!?" It was heartbreaking. But, its over - and her nose looks great. i haven't been able to get a good picture, but it is going to heal really well!

Here she is in the chair before the nurse first came in ;-)
