Peter was at a friend's birthday party and got injured playing dodgeball. He and another boy collided as they both ran for the ball. Unfortunately for Peter his glasses cut his eye lid. When I went to pick him up from the party I knew that he would need stitches. The cut wasn't all that deep but it was big enough to need something other than a bandaid. Mike gathered all the supplies he would need and prepped Peter's eye for a couple of stitches. Peter was super nervous and was not at all happy about having to get stitches. Once he realized that the lidocaine actually did numb up his eye he started to calm down a bit. Luckily Mike had his loops with him since he had just done surgery at the Air Force Academy the day before. I love having a facial plastic surgeon in the house. Not only did he do a much better job than any ER doc would have done, but we didn't have to wait the ridiculous amount of time we would have waited in the ER for a procedure that took less than 10 minutes.
