Abby lost 214 yesterday. Dr. John changed her dressing today. He put some "seaweed stuff" on her wound that is antibacterial. It doesn't look like "seaweed." Jenn says it looks like angel hair pasta. It looks like really fine straw.
She got some more physical and occupational therapy. Lisa, her OT, does really great work. We believe the time Lisa spends with Abigail is crucial to her continued recovery. Lisa's entire approach is very healing and therapeutic.
Abby's chest looks better everyday. I hope I am not getting too optimistic, but Dr. John (and me) hopes by the end of this week - maybe - we can close her chest. I asked him how much longer after the closure can we hold her, he said probably the next day should be fine. I think she really needs to be held. I'm sure that she would love that. I know we would.
