June was a trooper. She cooperated with the exam, and just seemed curious when the nurse taped the numbing swap on her head. She LOVED watching Elmo and eating chocolate cookies.
The worst part was when they cleaned out the cut. The doctor brought in 3 other people to hold her down and told us it wouldn't hurt June, but she would be scared by all the strangers holding her down and putting water on her face. While they cleaned out the cut June turned bright red and hollered, "NOOOOOOO" and "MOMMMMMMMYYYY" over and over again. Teriann and I were both holding her hands and crying all over the place ourselves while telling her it was going to be okay. They didn't have to give her stitches, because the edges of the cut were so smooth, so they used super glue and tape to put it back together again.
She has been fine since and doesn't seem to notice the glue or tape at all. As soon as we were home from the hospital she was running around like her usual self. She is so full of energy and has no fear. We are crossing our fingers that we won't have to visit the ER again any time soon.
