I came home today from Lance’s follow-up appointment to find this beauty waiting for me!! It seems like I have been waiting for forever for the Hollyhock to bloom and now it has. It was well worth the wait.
Lance’s follow-up appointment went really great. No more surgeries. He is healing up nicely and the surgeon was most pleased with his work. Though he will never be able to pursue a career as a hand model, the scarring should heal up to not look so gruesome. I am including photos of his hand/thumb below. I must warn you though. The first ones are sort of…well, gross. Here they are:
It has been a long and twisted path through this but we are healing as well. Now, learning how to use what is there. I know Lance will have it all down in no time. For me, today’s appointment felt like it lifted about a million tons off of my shoulders.
