Problems with graphs

Over the past several weeks Nicole has had more and more open spots and they are taking extra long to heal.

Today she went to wound care and had Dr. Saffel examine her. His conclusion is her body is rejecting some of the graphs. So what does that mean? It mean she will be in for more grafting. He gave her some medicine to try and help. They are going to watch it for the next month to see if it helps. If not they will have to take off the skin that keeps opening up and put new donors there.

I have wondered if that was the case because the same areas over and over open. I guess this is a new phase for us.

I am grateful for the technology we have in this day and age. I am grateful the doctors have come so much further even in just the last 10 years regarding burns and grafts.
