We met with the plastic surgeon today.
As of right now, she will be going to physical therapy everyday this week for 'whirlpool debridement' of the wound. This entails allowing the swirling movement of water to debride or remove the dead tissues from her fingers. There will also be some physical picking or scraping of the wound in areas that need special attention. Not fun. The good thing about this is that she will be re-bandaged everyday by someone who knows what they are doing. This will also reduce greatly the possibility of infection (which we don't want).
The whirlpool treatment will help the wound fully reveal itself. There is a possibility of needing skin grafts which is another story in and of itself. I will update on that if we have to cross that road. The wounds are in a hard place, i.e., knuckles, etc.
We meet with the doctor again, one week from today. He will further evaluate the wound then.
Evelyn did well at the doctor today. She was a little apprehensive of the doctor (she did say "cheese" when he took pictures of her hand :), but completely LOVED her nurse Rosie. Rosie was able to help Evelyn have the courage not to cry and pull back on her hand while they were working on it.
Please keep Evelyn in your prayers. It's going to be a long week.
