November 19, 2012

Alexz' surgery went very well today. All of his grafts have taken to his burns, and they added more grafting to a few spots. Fortunately, modern medicine has taken us to the point where we didn't have to take any of Alexz' skin for the grafting. Using collagen from pigskin, a lab cultured product called EZderm has provided all of the grafts for Alexz. As far as burns go, Alexz is healing so g
ood. Because of the debriding, he has been spiking a temperature, keeping him on Tylenol 'round the clock on top of his other pain medicines. Today he woke up to tell me he loves me, just before falling back into a deep healing sleep. ♥
Hopefully, if he continues to heal at such a successful rate, he will only have a few more debridements left. If that is the case, he will be able to lose the respirator (they keep it in to prevent damage from removing and replacing etc.) and move on to the next stage of burn treatment. I pray that this will be the case :)
Thank you for following, LOVE.
