Just spoke with Nurse Christy - Jonah ate and slept his way through most of his bandage change. They started with his left arm, then left leg, then right leg, then right arm. When they did his right arm, he kinda went crazy again ("pretty ticked off" were Christy's words). What is the possibility of nerve damage with healing after severe skin loss? His right arm is starting to look much better, but he acts like it kills him. I just don't know what's wrong.
Please pray for Jonah's right arm and hand. (How's that for specific?)
Jonah had a good day today, but I left the hospital before his bandage change. I am extremely tired tonight, and had an emotional semi-breakdown, so the nurses told me to come home - they have it under control.
I just felt like I was no use to him tonight, and if I was already crying before it started, I knew that if it was a night like last night, I would completely lose it.
So anyway, I don't know how the dressing change is going, but we will call in about an hour and find out. Please keep praying for him.
I'm somewhere between relieved to be home before midnight and feeling completely guilty for having left him. I know in my head that it's okay that I left, but in my heart I feel like I have abandoned him.
Here are pictures from today.
