Here's a quick update on the Colonel...
They opened the bandages yesterday and it was pretty disgusting. The nurse kept pulling gauze out of the wound and it just kept coming and coming and coming.
It reminded me of a magician pulling the scarves out of his sleeve.
The hole is that deep.
They attached him to the wound vac which is a portable machine that will continue to drain "stuff" out of the hole in his leg and aid in his healing.
If the wound vac doesn't close the hole, he will need a skin graft.
I did offer some of the extra skin I have around my butt.
Today the PICC IV line goes in and hopefully we can leave the hospital this afternoon. We need to stop by Ft. Dix for the doctors there to examine him and sign him up on medical leave.
Once we are home, we will have nurses come to the house three times a week to administer the antibiotics to him through the PICC line
and change the the dressing on the wound vac and empty the machine.
Here are some pictures of the last few days...
Michael enjoying some McDonald's in the hotel room.
For some reason he's enjoying this "vacation."
Phil's "wound." Trust me you don't want to see what's under this bandage!
Phil and Michael enjoying Father's Day...
Thanks for your prayers.
I'll keep you updated!
Love my blogging friends!
