Trials two and three have failed on the diapers. I tried Simple Green and Country Save tonight, as well as boiling hot water, but it may take several treatments. I am not giving up hope. I'm excited to write down your suggestions from the comments, and try things until something works.
I have great photos from the party Saturday (not so much of Jonah as he slept through the entire thing), but some great ones of birthday girl, Maddie, and my ever-so-talented-cloth-diaper-making-friend Jen's little boy, Jude. But I'm way too tired to get them off the camera and post them tonight. Sorry. I know you peeps love you some cute photos... and I'm no photographer or anything, but let me just say, I'm patting myself on the back over these. Too cute.
Jonah's hands were in decent shape when we unwrapped them tonight. He had a few blisters that needed to be (re)drained, but the swelling had gone down. So tonight I've wrapped the body of his hands, but left his fingers out. We'll see how that goes. I know ideally it would be best to wrap his fingers individually (a necessity with RDEB, but not with JEB) to protect them best yet still give him full use, but I can barely get him to hold still when I'm wrapping just the body of his hand. I can watch videos til the cows come home, and that's still not going to help me wrap his hands. Homeboy is strong. And ill. And doesn't like to be messed with. You have a very small window of opportunity when doing anything to his hands.
And oh man, I forgot to say that JONAH IS COMPLETELY OFF OF BOTH ATIVAN AND MORPHINE. And has been for about a week. I can't believe I've forgotten to mention it before now, but this is such an answered prayer and blessing that he is off those mega-kick-butt drugs. Now we're controlling his pain with Tylenol only when needed. And besides being the fuss box he's always been (the pictures only make him appear to be a laid back baby), he's handling things just fine.
Ok, my eyes are closing as I type these last words, and I'm sufficiently
