I spent the day with Christie today giving her a pedicure and shaving her legs.....so fun!!! She keeps on marvelling everyone as she heals and improves everyday. She got to see her grafted hand and was very pleased with how it looked. She is a bit uncomfortable because now all the burns are starting to itch but as her sister keeps reminding her this is a good sign. This means that the skin is healing. If you notice in one of the pictures Winn is spraying her with a water bottle. There is a special goldish bandage that they have on her burns and if it is kept damp it helps to draw out the bad "stuff" helping there to be minimal scaring.
Tomorrow will be a painful day for Christie so send all your good thoughts and positive energy her way. She will have all the bandages taken off. She is especially anxious to see the grafting on her neck as she's been so careful not to move her head to much and to keep it straight to help the grafting take. If all the grafting takes and looks good she will not have to have anymore surgeries...so fingers crossed. Her face looks like its healing well she may have to have some work on her nose but I think we'll know more tomorrow. She is hoping that if she keeps improving as she is that soon she can be moved to Kamloops hospital that way Aaron can start working as he is spending everyday at her bedside.
She's been reading the blog and is overwhelmed at all of you who care so much for her. Even though she's doing so well right now she'll need our support and positive energy for a long time while she goes through this long healing process. Thanks everyone for your support and for caring!!!
