Stitches are out!

I'm still not allowed to use my hand but the hard part is over! YIPPEE!!! Ok and for those that said it doesn't hurt when they come out....LIARS!!!! I was sobbing like a baby with each snip and pull. OMG! The nurse said it's because it's on my palm and the wound is not healed yet, plus some new skin had grown ON the stitches (anyone gonna throw up yet? *gag*).

So I'm not posting a pic, oddly the wound looks nastier now than in the pic I posted earlier. It looks like when you slice open a hot dog, not pretty. So because I've been back at work and typing all day (and trying to stamp when i get home) I've irritated it, it's swollen and inflamed and the doc yelled at me. Oops. So nothing new to show you yet....but just you wait, because something BIG is coming and I assure you that you don't want to miss it. I'm resting over the weekend and on Monday I'll have some fun stuff to share!!!!

And since I can't stamp I'm thinking I should post some blog candy...hmmm, anyone thinking the same thing??? ;)

So sorry about the pain Jillian...I would have warned you!! I always HATED getting my stitches out (I've had a few!) Take it easy this weekend girly!!

I think so!! Blog Candy is a great idea! Bummer about your hand! My 8 year old had to get staples in his head & he said the same thing when they took them out!

I had to get 5 stitches in my thumb for a really bad gash. It hurts so much more because of all the nerve endings in our fingers/hands. Sorry you had this happen and sending lots of wishes for a speedy recovery :).

Must be so frustrating not being able to do what you love. You will soon be back............

I have always thought it hurt worse to have stitches taken out than put in! Why don't they deaden it to take them out???

Patience is so hard to practice, isn't it? Read a good book and you will be back to stamping before you know it.

Ooooo yeah, blog candy!!!! :)

Yeah, its not lots of fun having the stitches put in OR taken out!!! Hope you heal quickly; we miss your great creativity! Hang in there!

You should be on the mend now that the stitches are out. A couple of more days and you'll notice a big difference in the pain...or at least I hope so. Must be very inconvenient with it being your left hand. Take it easy and milk it for all it's worth. Nothing a little candy won't help. Miss seeing your creations.

Ouch, ouch, ouch! Makes my stomach quesy. Sorry you had to experience that. Did they send you home with Aquaphor? Best stuff for wounds still healing. I swear by it.

Beautiful new picture too!
