Warning: Explicit Material!!!!

Here's what you've all been asking for! This is a picture of Denver's arm uncovered! The nurse came by today & redressed his arm again. So I'll scroll down some so it's not the first thing people see when they get here!

This is actually good, according to the nurse. The redder it gets, the better. The white part is not his bone, but a tendon. The skin is a straight cut because the surgeons cleaned it up. You can see how the meat is swollen, which is what we are waiting for to go down. It's very painful for him to have it changed, he has to take drugs before the nurse gets here. The first layer is a petroleum based covering which helps it not stick but as you can imagine it's still painful.

I might take the picture off in a few days, I don't think it's a good idea to keep it on here forever. Who wants to look at that everytime they come here?

Again, thank you all so much for your calls & emails. We really appreciate it!

Did you already take the picture off? It's 8:15 am here and I don't see it yet.

It's not as bad as I had pictured in my head. I'm glad of that. Hopefully the swelling will reduce so they can get to stitching it up.
