Simon got his stitches out already!
The orthopedic surgeon took them out on day seven. He said Simon was healing up great. He wrapped the little pinkie back up and said once it stops oozing (the holes from the stitches) we didn't really have to keep it covered or anything. He did give us a "cage" for Simon's pinkie in case we thought we needed it to protect his finger, which has been hard to wrap to keep it on. The doc seemed to think it would be more trouble than it's worth, and I'm starting to agree with him.
He looked at Simon's x-rays and said it was a clean break and lined up fine for healing, so that's great news!
We take him back in three weeks just to see how it's healing up, but the doctor had all the confidence in the world that it would be fine.
That little Simon, he's tough!
