I have now helped with dressing changes for the last three days and I am learning more and more each time I help. I remember the first time Patrice unwrapped Jonah I was just amazed how beautiful his skin was. There was something about it that I just loved. I watched Patrice and her Mother in Law do the dressing changes for the first two days and I spent time taking notes.
Wednesday was my first day to help and I was so excited. I thought I would be nervous the whole time but I only got nervous after I took the dressing off his legs. I was so afraid of rubbing his skin off but Patrice reassured me that if I was gentle it would be okay.
This is me wrapping an arm.
This was by far the worst part because I knew it hurt him.
It is necessary though so it had to be done.
Putting transfer on his leg.
I know I still have a lot to learn so I am thankful to be here for a few more days. I miss my family though and can't wait to see them on Monday!
