Deacon was wrapped with a foam pad that contains medicine and then wrapped in bandages that he will keep on for several days. He had to endure one more burn tank scrub down but it looks like the worst is over. We will change his outer bandages every other day and keep his face clean and lubed up with Bacotracin ointment. He will go back on the 25th to have the foam pad removed and hopefully will be mostly healed at that point. He also has to do stretches to keep his arm skin from healing too tight as well as neck stretches to keep the skin flexible. He is not expected to have much scarring, but only time will tell.
Here’s our little guy…
He is in high spirits, just a little emotional at times and sad to see me go to the hospital to be with Phoebe which is the worst part about it so far. Fortunately, Phoebe is doing GREAT and when I saw her today laughing and joking and having a good time at the hospital it set my heart at ease a bit and made me feel okay about letting her Grandmothers stay with her for the weekend so I can be with Deacon a little more.
Benjamin is doing well, he feels fine minus some residual itching and should clear up very soon. I’m not sure why God has allowed all of this into our lives, but I know He is good and those purposes will be revealed in time. My hope is that He gets all the glory, because as horrible as these things seem, the beauty far outweighs the ashes and His grace for each moment has been something to behold.
