Here we go again!

 Tuesday started out pretty good... we just had to run to Bountiful to get Zack's stitches out... or so we thought!  The stitches started to come out ok... but as she got further up his arm two separate spots on his stitches started to open up.  Then it started to bleed...oooze...seep through many layers of gauze.  She was also concerned about the lump further up where the stitches didn't come apart!  The P.A. came in and looked at it and they called his Dr. and they said that most likely Zack would need to have surgery in the morning to clean everything out.  
We didn't get too far from the Dr's office and she called us and asked if we could come back to the hospital tonight at 6 for Dr. to look at it.  Then another call telling Zack not to eat or drink anything... just in case the Dr. wanted to work on it then.  Then we got home and got another call asking if we could be back there asap.  So we headed back to Bountiful and checked him in.  Don't you love his cute knees?  Dr. came in and said it was a hematoma and that it wouldn't take long.  It didn't!  Surgery was only 15 mins.  Dr. doesn't think that there is any infection... but put him on a antibiotic because of the 2 surgeries in 2 weeks!  He is doing well this morning!  Excited that he found a cheap drum set on KSL!  Now if I can keep him off of them long enough for his arm to heal... we will be set!
