One of the tricks of daily wound care is removing the scars and dead skin. Usually, we do this with warm washcloths. It’s a slow process, and it’s tricky to keep Max warm, comfortable, and not riddled with pain. Today, Max took a bath for the first time. We were amazed at how easily and effectively the scars and dead skin floated off. Swim pools are out, but the doctors say baths are in. Life is good.
Patience hasn’t been one of my virtues. I like to “make things happen”, be a part of breakthroughs and progress, and just get things done. This whole experience is teaching me to trust the process more and truly be patient. While I want the skin to be all closed up and look normal in a day, that’s not a reality. What I do see however is line upon line, little progress here and there. Thank Heaven for the progress, growth, and healing we are all having today. It truly is a miracle. Bottom line is if this experience brings me nearer to my God, it’s a success.
“Nearer my God to Thee” has been one of our favorite through this experience and this arrangement by our dear friend James Stevens is lighting up our world!
