Trip to B'ham

Sorry I have not updated since our trip to Birmingham. We have been rather busy. Austin Kieff has been sick and not sleeping which means I have not been sleeping :).

David is doing well. The doctor in Birmingham questioned why he was not sent there to start with. We thought this was interesting since the nurse said the same thing. All in all Dr. Cross said that David's arm is healing well. Dr. Cross changed the medicine we had been using. He also told David that the nerve damage will probably go away on its own. He will reevaluate it in a couple of months. David goes back to see him on June 5. He will find out at this appointment when he can go back to work. The only negative comment involved David's range of motion. As he has burns across two joints (wrist and elbow) the skin has to be worked and stretched so that it does not heal too tightly. David has exercises to do to help prevent any further damage.

We owe a special thank you to David's parents for coming to the appointment with us. They watched Austin Kieff which was a tremendous help.

We are praying that David's arm continues to heal and that he does not get an infection.

We are so thankful for all of you and for your prayers.
