Zane came through his third grafting surgery tonight. It took them less than 2 hours (sorry for the late post!)- which is less than they thought! They did all of the grafting on his left arm and actually didn't have to debride as much of the skin as they thought because there was some healing on it's own. They did the grafting on his abdomen as well. They only had to take skin from his left thigh, and didn't even touch the lower half of his leg- which is awesome! They took a look at his back and are thinking they won't have to do any grafting on the left side. They're a little on the fence about the right side though- the burn was quite a bit deeper. We are all praying that they won't have to do ANY grafting on his back, as it'll be the hardest area to heal since he'll be laying on his back.
He's been breathing so well & his lungs are doing so much better that they might not even have to do the tracheotomy on Friday!! This time next week he could be breathing without vent support at all. Praise. God. His fever is back down and his vitals are all strong. We bought an ipod dock w/ speakers this morning and brought it into his room tonight. Now, he can listen to praise songs while he rests. The nurses are even enjoying it!
I really don't know how someone could go through something like this and not believe in God and miracles. God has been doing SO much for us & is taking care of Zane in amazing ways. Not only did our Savior die for us, but he saved my husband. We are forever indebted to Him & will tell our story until the day we die.
