I gave her stitches myself....

DD18 decided she was going to try to help rescue a raptor in our back yard (even tho the DOW was on it's way). She got bit and it was bad enough for stitches. 

She refused to go to the hospital. She told me she just had her tetanus shot so it wasnt needed. She was going to stitch herself up but i did it instead. 

My ex is freaking out. I told him it was none of his business what goes on in my house. He only knew because she posted a picture saying thanks mom better than I would have done. I would rather have done it myself than have her do it. I know how to give stitches and it was minor. 

To be clear everything was sterile. It was two stitches and not even a big deal

Yes. 

He still thinks of her as a child and is always so irrational about everything involving her

I don't see the big deal as long as everything was sterile...

Why though? She is a grown adult.

It was. I have several suture packs that come with everything included. The funny thing is my ex bought them when he went through a survivalist phase years back

I want to see the picture. And he needs to take problems with his adult daughters choices to his adult daughter.

Raptors is a common name used for birds of prey. Hawks, eagles, falcons, etc

This was some type of hawk. It was really messed up so I couldnt even identify what kind
