A FEW SCARES

The whole 6 weeks post-surgery Adam and I inspected his suture line constantly.
* What's that black dot? suture?
* Why is the lip so puffy?
* Is that a pimple coming up? (not a good thing)
* Do I need to clean it?
* Why is it so red?
* I think it's splitting!!! (ridiculous thought, but I thought it quite a few times)
* THAT'S IT!! CALL DR. MULLIKEN!!

Dr. Mulliken was always more than happy to look over our panic-filled photos and give us his opinion. Either he would say we should clean it, just keep watching, try to pull a stitch out if you can, or it looks just fine. Here are few photos we sent in case you have days when yours may look like this. If you get worried about it never hesitate to call someone. Sometimes issues come up and it needs to be addressed quickly, i.e. infection, pimples, or certain pesky sutures.
