Dr. Z (the head burn doc) came in at 1:00 today and said Alex's grafts are taking nicely. A nurse said they looked beautiful. Dr Z said he hopes to have Alex out of here Monday. Wahooooooooo~~~~!!!!!!
He never did win the battle with the heat - he was told that 68 was the lowest they could turn it due to bacteria and the burns.
But he won the battle of skin grafts. He also got the bandages taken off his 3 fingers. The human body is amazing. He grew skin on 3 fingers, covering up knuckles that were showing, in less than 3 weeks. His bandages were removed from his lower legs. He's progressing!!
Looks like he will be transported to Dixie Regional Neurological Center Monday. I will meet with his case worker tomorrow to get all the details. Even though he will be in the hospital a little longer at least we will have him back in St. George. All those that are wanting to come visit, hold tight, looks like he will be back to Dixie next week.
P.S. Daniels mom - I told Alex I saw you Monday night - he said "I miss Daniel". We hope to see him during Thanksgiving break :)
