Athelie's Burn Update

This will be short as it has become a little redundant - Friday we went back to Augusta. We waited a long time in the waiting room. We got back to the clinic and Dr. Mullin's looked at Athelie's shoulder area and thought it was healing well. She no longer needs any bandages and we can put lotion on all her burned skin area - no more antibiotic ointment is necessary.

She got fitted for her compression shirt. I got to pick out colors for the fabric and seams. Fun for me. I chose something non-medical looking. She'll get 2 shirts to wear - a purple and a red one. In the meantime they sent her home with 2 temporary shirts. The shirt is quite tight, but it hasn't seemed to bother her. She has to wear the shirt 23 hours a days for 6 months to a year. We don't have to go back until her custom made shirts are ready to be picked up, or after the baby is born. Or we might just wait until her 6 week check up to go back and pick up the shirts as we are kind of tired of making that drive. It is a relief to know we won't be driving down there again for a while.

Well, that's it for now.  So thankful for her healing. So thankful life is getting back to normal.
