The original "biopsy discussion" appointment turned into a quick stop to remove the stitches. Everything had healed up fine and hockey was back on the agenda.
Funny that since a minor surgery at 7, these were the Monkee's first stitches. Granted there was a time or tow when maybe there should have been stitches (...ahem) but still... all that hockey, mountain biking, skiing, pack-rafting, climbing, hiking, and this is the first time? Hard to believe.
