Tiana has been baking cookies. Some of those cookies have been eaten by her recuperating older brother.
It's nearly been a week since the surgery. Jared has been happily sitting, watching videos, reading, and resting. At first the leg was well-bandaged, but the seeping blood turned the bandage rock-hard, so that it was cutting into his leg. I gingerly removed it.
Thirty-four staples, people! Ugh.
The leg seems to be getting better, but I don't like the swelling, nor do I like the blood pooling at the bottom of the ankle. I have applied arnica gel to help with the bruising, and have given Jared plenty of Vitamin C, cod liver oil, and curcumin. And I have prayed, much, for God, the Great Physician, to heal my son.
