The Pin is GONE!

The pin is gone out of Adam's finger!!! He is soooo thankful too! If you don't know about his Finger Surgery, click on that link and read about it :).... Anyway, this time it wasn't as eventful as the original surgery... we didn't have to check in or get a hospital room.... We went in to see his doctor and he took us into this room to take out the pin...
They numbed up his finger and put a tourniquet on it and got ready to pull!
He had to do a lot of twisting and wiggling to get the pin out of his bone, but after a bit of work, the pin is out!! Adam is glad to have it out! (you can see his smile in the pic below) :) His doctor, Dr. Mukherje is really funny :) He started to take the pin out with forceps, and then he went to the pliers... well, the pliers were HUGE! He was having trouble pulling the pin out with those big pliers... Adam joked with him and said: "If I had known, I would have brought my needle-nosed pliers"... the the doctor said: "that would have been good"... haha! In the pic below, you can see him with the pin out (and in the pliers).
Here's a close-up of the pin and pliers (below)... although you can't really see the size of the pliers in this pic, but you get the picture :)

Auugh! I didn't realize how big the pin in his finger was!!
I know there are tons of Mukherjee's here, but every time I meet one, I wanna ask if they're related to Rani. :) One of these days, I'm gonna find my Bollywood connection!
