A Delicate Stitch Job

This girl came in a few days ago with a wound on her eye lid.  The story was that she fell out of bed and hit a rock.  (We were suspicious that the story wasn't true.)  


Cleaning and preparing to stitch.


There was this glob of tissue that needed removed before I could stitch.


All stitched up!


A few days later when we took stitches out--see the stitches on the gauze?


Almost healed

A life of drastic differences

It’s the beautiful...and the ugly.  The first newborn cry...and holding the hand of the dying elderly.  The miracles...and the will...
