This is part 2 of a series of posts I will make with wound photos that Facebook does not allow me to post. Post #1 is here.
I took some photos of Nicky’s wounds to be shared at the Hydrotherapy yesterday, June 18, 2012. I just updated Nicky’s journal about how he is currently doing, it can be viewed here –>
I picked 8 photos of his limbs, the knees/wrists are infected with Pseudomonas which we are dealing with. Overall we are pleased, he’s doing good with the combination products I use on his wounds and the heavy usage of Webril to prevent him from hurting himself by scratching, and create a padding that helps him do things he would not otherwise not being able to do… you know, like walking.
Nicky's Left Elbow. This elbow has significantly improved since last year thanks to the Polymem, it was even biopsied at Stanford.
Left Wrist has also significantly improved with the Polymem.
Right Knee and top
Right Hand and wrist
... and he STILL smiles at me despite it all. <3 <3 <3
Mom to 3 boys, 1 in heaven, 2 on earth. My first son Alex (whose demise is most likely EB related) was stillborn at full term. After a miscarriage, I had my second son Nicky, who has the Recessive Dystrophic form of Epidermolysis Bullosa. My youngest son, Connor, is 100% healthy, and I never, ever take it for granted. I am an author, photographer, graphic artist, webmaster, blogger and more.
