We had our appointment at the Burn Unit in SLC today. Geoff has been out of town for the week so my brother came with me. Good thing he did because I almost fainted. I have learned that I don't do well with seeing people I love being in pain. I've seen the wound lots obviously, but when they were touching it and he was hurting, I got lightheaded.

Their assessment was not quite as positive as I was hoping for, though they did say that much of it is healing well. Parts of it are deeper than they originally thought, so skin grafts are still a possibility unfortunately. They told us to keep our routine up for the next two weeks and then they'd decide at that point. Walter, the nice physical therapist, made Isaac a splint for us to put on the back of Isaac's leg at night to encourage his knee to straighten since it's in a slight bent position right currently.

I am certainly grateful to have Geoff back! Did I mention that I lost my wallet at Thanksgiving Point on Tuesday? Let's just say it's been a long week.
