October 8th

The graft area has healed well except for the small pocket where it is draining from. Pray that the hole stops draining and fills in with good tissue.

Mr. Rodenbeck, I have been following your recovery for a couple of months now. I found your site while researching a burn that a had gotten on my stomach after having surgery. The doctors said that i had a reaction to the tape that they used and it gave me third degree burns. My surgery was July 30, 2007 and nothing was healing this burn. I had it debried and it just seemed to get larger and deeper as time went on. I tried everything that I could think of. Three weeks ago my grandfather came home from having heart surgery and the hospital sent him home with Adaptic wound care made by Johnson and Johnson. He had more than enough so my grandmother gave me a few to try. They were like miracle healers. I only wish I had taken pictures like you have to show the progress. In three weeks my wound went from 1.5" and probably 1/4" deep to closing and I would say it is 99% healed. God bless you on your journey to recovery and thank you for documenting it to help others.
