The phone rang and we hear a sobbing girl.

She is in the emergency room late Saturday night. She had waited, bleeding and in pain for nearly 2 hours (with her enebriated friend who also needed attention) and she had lost her ever present cool.
They had decided to walk the last few blocks home (to help sober up her roommate.) Then they tripped and fell on the pavement.
We called long distance to the ER and asked them to see to her quickly, she is so far away from home, and they did - 4 stitches for her and 10 for him.

All in all it took 6 hours which is about average based on my rather extensive recent experience.

There is something called Scarguard or DermaGuard that she can use once the sutures are removed that lessens the scarring. Also, keep it covered with medical tape for 6 months to a year, or it will tan darker than the rest of her skin.
