Just finished dressing change, and the skin on the huge blister is still intact. Praise God! There is another smaller area on that same foot where the skin has sloughed off, thus the blood, but it didn't seem to bother him when the water hit it today.
We're still having to be very careful, because one wrong jerk of his leg or letting him hit his foot with his other one, and that skin will be off. I feel like I'm holding my breath from the time we unwrap that leg to the time when we get it successfully wrapped again. He's a champ and continues to amaze me every day!
He's not eating well at all. He only took two ounces before bed last night, wouldn't eat at all during the night (we tried twice), and only took three and a half ounces this morning. We're going to try again here in a few minutes, and I'm hoping it will go better. He had a tongue blister last night so I'm hoping that was some of the problem. It has drained now, but still didn't make him eat well this morning. I would LOVE a good feeding before we leave... It is a BEAUTIFUL fall day here today. I'm totally pumped for Jonah's first time at the fair. Praying for no irreparable damage (in the form of gushing vomits or anything else he might happen to come up with five minutes before we walk out the door).
1,000 pound pumpkin, HERE WE COME!
