**Scar Update**

We have been thrilled at the way Caleb's cut has been healing.  He got his stitches out two weeks ago today, and the scar is already looking really good. Everyone sings the praises of Mederma, so we have been putting that on twice a day since the stitches came out.

Mr. Sensitive wasn't really, well, "sensitive"...but he obviously knew what he was doing when he stitched Caleb up.  There isn't even the slightest bump where the scar is.  It is perfectly smooth.

So here is what Caleb's scar is looking like over the past week.

I can't believe it was only 2 1/2 weeks ago that it looked like this!

Sorry to put you through that again. I will leave you with a more pleasant image...

Oh, to be four again.

Glad his scar is healing nicely! Looks like Seth is at the dinner table. Otherwise it would be scary what could be on his face!

His scar looks great! Mr. Sensitive knows his stuff! That picture of Seth is SO funny. That's chocolate frosting, isn't it? Where were you? I want to know the story behind that!

1. These are such great pictures of Caleb, I almost forgot to look for the scar!
2. WHAT is Seth smearing all over his face? Please tell me that is not chocolate pie!

Hi - I work with Mederma and am glad you are using it on Caleb. Wanted to make sure you are aware of the correct application for the best results: you should gently massage Mederma into the scar 3 or 4 times per day for 8 weeks on new scars and 3 to 6 months on existing scars. Also, since it is on his face, we have a new product, Mederma Cream + SPF 30, which contains the SPF 30 because the sun can cause discoloration of scars.
