It’s been over a month since I was able to post pictures of Capt Snuggles. During that time, we almost lost him. From head to toe, the GVHD ravaged his body.
His skin, his gut, his eyes.
They told me he might not make it.
They told me to be prepared.
But what they didn’t tell me was to hang on to my tiny shreds of hope. They did not tell me to get my hopes up every time some little bit of good news was delivered. They thought he would give up and we would have to accept that.
David hasn’t given up.
In fact, I’m bursting to be able to utter these 3 little words.
He’s getting better.
Yesterday, we completed his dressing change in about an hour, 2 Chaperones and NO proprofol. That’s right, NO additional sedation was needed to change his dressings.
I am AMAZED at his progress.
Of course, what better time than Christmas to show off this amazing progress.
I can’t ever show you the “before” pictures. Yes, I have a couple. They are too heartbreaking for me to share. Just trust me when I say……
These piggies are absolutely Amazing.
Thank you to everyone who faithfully reads our story. I am honored to have made so many friends through the simple sharing of our journey.
A journey that, really, is just beginning.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
