Nanny came in to Jack saying that he had a booboo.
A “BIG PINTER” is what he told me! I looked at it and called his mom; who had already left for work, and asked if I she knew about it. She said yes and that she forgot to mention it to me. I told her I was going to call the doctor and see if we could get in to have it removed since it was SO BIG and already pretty DEEP!! Jack told Nanny that he got the splinter while on the deck with his daddy and not wearing any shoes!
Nanny called the doctor and explained the situation. They said to come on in and they would see us immediately. SO we packed up in the car and went, Jack still being in his jammies!
Dr. Martin was the LUCKY doctor to remove the splinter. We were put in the treatment room where they set up the equipment. Nanny got up on the table with Jack and held his arms while a nurse held his legs.
Jack was not a happy camper but very understandably so! After just a little while Dr. Martin was all finished and wrapped up Jack’s foot and sent us on our way!
Jack was a MUCH happier camper when we got to the car! Every time we go to the doctor Jack says he doesn’t want to go into Dr. Martin’s room (aka the treatment room!)
