So, they've taken the bandages off the skin / muscle grafts.
Let me preface this by saying I've never seen anything like what I saw when they took the bandages and wound vacs off the grafts. I pray that none of you ever have to see anything like that, either. However, if you are ever presented with the need for a skin graft, I pray yours are as successful as Mom's. :-)
The doctor was very happy with the results, both on the skin grafts and the muscle. Mom will have a very big scab at the skin graft donor site, but no more bandages! She'll have the bandages on the actual grafts changed daily from here on out. The doc said it should take about 2-3 weeks for the flesh to re-form over the wounds. Yippee!!! She still needs to be careful about the movement in her legs for the time being, but all-in-all, we're doing great!!
Additionally, it really didn't hurt her much at all when they did all the unwrapping, which is a blessing in itself.
Thanks so much for your prayers. We continue to have reason to praise the Lord! We're moving forward and will hopefully be in rehab sometime next week!!!
