Another Wednesday, another wound dressing change. Today was a teensy bit easier than the last one. Maybe at some point I won't cry every time? I got some numbers today too!

When I first started with the wound vac, the wound was 5.2cm x 1.2cm, and 6cm deep.

Today it measured 5.2cm x 1 cm, and 3.4cm deep.

The nurses were pleased. It's healing from the inside out, which is exactly what they like to see. I was just happy that things are happening, it makes all the pain worth it. It's very hard work, trust me on that one.


  1. Wow, that is awesome progress!

  2. Wow, that is significant improvement for just one week!!! Believe me, I know. I have seen many wounds heal, and that is some good healing!! Keep up the good work!


  3. What good news!! I have a lot of respect for those nurses - sounds like you have a great group taking care of you!! Hope the healing continues at this good rate!!
