Once In A Blue Moon

Today will be a full moon.  Following the "calendar" method of computing, that makes tonight's full moon a "Blue Moon".    The last Blue Moon was New Year's Eve 2009.  Here is my post about the different ways of calculating Blue Moons.

Sarah's Stitches

In February, Sarah was wearing some of my Valentine hanging earrings.  She ended up with it pulling the hole in her ear bigger.  I tried to tape it together so that it would heal together, but it didn't.  Then the last week of school in June, the last little bit of flesh gave way, leaving her with a split ear. 

At the hospital to get her lacerated ear lobe fixed

Back from surgery

5 stitches

She got 3 tokens to "buy" something from the prize tower

Being pushed to the exit in a child sized wheelchair

Right before the stitches came out

The doctor didn't do as nice of a job as I would have expected and there is a flap that is longer on the one side, but at least it isn't split any more!
