|Jacob taking an oxygen break after his bath. This is about as far as Jacob could get his tongue out of his mouth prior to his procedure.|
Jacob also had a huge blood draw today (took two lab techs, three pokes, and 7cc of blood!) The doctors are testing for all sorts of allergies. Hopefully, we will have some answers by the end of next week. His skin is looking much clearer though. The steroid cream seems to really be doing its job! We did our first dilute bleach bath last night. Then lathered all up! I can't bear the thought of wet wraps, so unless Jacob has an unmanageable flare-up, I'm going to hold off on that. Jacob also took a little unauthorized oxygen break during his bath. He seems to do pretty well. We tried this earlier in the week just to give his weeping skin a break. We put him on his oximeter then, and he stays around 97-100% oxygen saturation. Hopefully the doctors will approve daytime breaks soon so we don't have to be tethered to one area of the house.
