We are finally settled in our temporary home in Houston. We have an orthopedic visit next Tuesday and a appointment with the plastic surgeon next Friday, hopefully we will get the OK to travel to POC or Fort Worth for 2 weeks before our next doctor visits. We almost had an uneventful day yesterday. I (mom) changed Nicholas' dressing on his foot. I started taking off the layers of gauze (cleaning in stages) starting with the pin care, gently swabbing around each pin. Under the gauze is a strip of xeroform that I was about to remove when my poor mother FAINTED. As she laid across Nicholas I was trying to get her to wake up and Nicholas was telling me to call 911. I was on my way to the phone when she awoke claiming to be OK. Her explanation for passing out was, she was thinking about the shark and Nicholas' foot in its mouth. All is good now and we are laughing about it. My very best friend, Callie (who is a labor and delivery nurse), is here now and she will help me with dressing changes and Memaw will hide her face under the covers with Nicholas. He still has not looked at his foot, it is a lot for him to take in and it looks very scary. He has seen the picture of the reconstruction. We have been working on his physical therapy exercises to keep him from getting stiff since he is in the bed most of the time. He was up 6 times yesterday. We are happy that Memaw, Natalie, and Callie are here with us to keep us company. We are missing Dad and looking forward to him returning for our doctor visit next Friday and hopefully help us move to our next destination. Thank you for all of your prayers.
