Within an hour of me seeing it, the blisters had both popped leaving a awful looking open sore behind. I immediately pulled out my box of bandage supplies
This picture was taken after about 1 week. The toe one is actually healed in this picture, it was smaller.
We've been pretty good with skin so far. So it was kinda a kick in the face to have to deal with this. It's amazing just how fast it happened. I had just assumed that because Nickolas could feel his feet that this wouldn't happen.
He can definitely feel his feet. Every time he is on the potty I'd take a look. So that Nickolas kept screaming at me "No mommy! Not my foot!"
I had cream on it, then a band aid, then so I could put his shoes and braces on (luckily the AFO's don't rub against this spot) I put some gauze on it for cushioning and taped it all up.
But it's on it's way to healing well.
Nick is a boy and boys get dirty. I taped a sock to his foot to keep the dirt off of it.
It hasn't impacted his walking at all. And we've put him in some crocs just in case things rub a bit.
I'm just amazed at how fast it all happened. And this is on area he can feel. Everything I have talks about skin breakdown and being vigilant (and I thought I was) but now I can really see how one little sore can get so big so fast.
I'll be so happy once it finally heals (we are heading into week 2)
