Day Surgery

The Gloved One

The Gloved One ready for Kenalog injections

Coloring out the frustrations of a long wait

At last, ready to go

After waking back up, not feeling so great

Home again, food at last!

The Other Gloved One

Wade has been wearing a Jobst glove to help counteract the scar tissue from his burn, which has thickened on the top of his palm and on his third finger. Today he also had steroid injections done which will help to start breaking up the scar tissue. He will likely have the injections done three times, six weeks apart. He was sedated for the procedure because the injections need to be placed very precisely and are painful.

"And a partridge in a bear tree," Christopher sang.

"No, Christopher," said Randall, the official Little Brother Corrector, "it's a partridge in a pantry."

(They must be closely related to the person who once asked my mom, "What in the world is a partridge junipear tree?")

Classic Chris

In the middle of a dark night: "I had a bad dream…but it didn't last long. It was only a meter-millen of a second."


On the way to church on a cold evening: "The only thing wrong with suits is that they don't have hoods."
