Update on the burn victim...

Well, we started the twice a day bandage changes on Thursday morning. My grandma drove in to help me out. Let me just comment about my grandma.

She has such a skill with children and all things medical. She has some nurses' training. That has been such a blessing. She has nursed her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild back to health so many times. She is such a servant. I guess I am a "child" rising up and calling her "blessed." Just like Proverbs states. She is priceless.

Anyway, back to our update. The first bandage change went well. We put him into the bath with the whole bandage on. The water helps to soak off the bandage. He didn't even flinch. He loved the bath. The worst part was having to pull part of the bandage off of the foot wound. It had stuck to the wound. Chase didn't appreciate it much. We got the new bandage on pretty easily. He is such a trooper.

We have done it three other times since. It is getting easier and easier. His leg is also starting to look much better. The foot is still sore and needs some more healing time. It looks much better though as well.

God is answering our prayers. We are so grateful!
