Instead, we spent Friday evening at an after-hours clinic. At 5:00 on Friday, Katelyn tripped and fell at school and, in the process, bit all the way through the skin underneath her bottom lip. OUCH. It didn't appear that she needed stitches, but we went to a clinic as a precaution.
Long story short, it was a horrible experience on every possible level.
Thankfully, the doctor confirmed that Katelyn probably didn't need stitches, unless we just wanted to go that route. We did not. She gave us an antibiotic prescription in case of infection, and we were outta there. Despite the antibiotic, Katelyn ended up getting impetigo anyway (infectious rash that spreads, often the result of a nearby injury) on her chin, which was also not fun. But we're over that now and I'm grateful.
This picture was taken two days later, but you can kind of see the cut underneath her lip.
Dalmation Katelyn and Cinderella Annabelle... and one of my favorite pictures ever! They are such sweet friends and cousins.
At the petting zoo... and likely contemplating eating the animal food herself.
Finally getting to pet a goat
giving the giant pumpkin a hug
Loved the bean bag toss
October was rough. Katelyn also had a stomach virus and major teething misery (but those two molars FINALLY came through, hooray!). Here's to hoping for a much smoother November!
