Lydia is so glad to have her cast off. At first she had quite a bit of soreness and was afraid to use it, but I think the right arm has now returned to full activity and range of motion! Lydia's hair is so wild because she changed into dress-up clothes right before I took this picture.
Nicolas had silver nitrate put on the hypergranulation area in the doctor's office once last week, and then we had to do it two additional times at home. Now that it is finally turning black we hope the deadened area falls off soon so the skin can close over the sore and finally heal. At this point it is not very painful for him, but he still keeps it covered because it has a tendency to ooze (yuck!)
