Because life should never be boring

Zachary didn't need stitches after all. The cut on his foot had closed by the time a nurse practitioner was able to see him, and no amount of prying would open the wound. However, because the cut is on the ball of Zach's foot, extreme care must be taken to avoid exacerbating the situation.

So instead of stitches....
...Zach soaked his foot in iodine solution.... super glue and steri-strips...

...a gauze wrapping...

...a protective boot...

...and CRUTCHES! Can you believe it? Crutches.
For the next 24-48 hours he is supposed to elevate his foot.
For the next 7-10 days, he can't put pressure on his foot.
No walking, running, bike riding, P.E., recess, zoo trips,
park trips, play structure time, etc.

All I can do is laugh. Maniacally.
It should be an interesting week, to say the least!
