Ok, it’s official. Jay heals faster than humanly possible. He must be Wolverine or something.
In other words, Jay is doing great. At his visit to the Phoenix Burn unit yesterday, they said that he was looking great, could switch to a different type of dressing, and after one more week of follow up would probably be considered done with treatment. He has healthy new skin coming in where the burn used to be. He has shown absolutely zero signs of infection. He is already off most of the pain meds. He can sit on the burn for periods of 15 minutes or more. If it were not for the pictures I have of the burn during the first week, I would have thought that I dreamed the whole thing.
He’s still being driven nuts by the itching (similar to when you get a bad sunburn or get a tattoo). He will not be riding his bike right away (unless he tries it trials style and doesn’t sit on the saddle…). Otherwise, he’s back to normal.
Hopefully he can update the blog next week so that you can get his perspective. We hope to be back on the road in April after his brother’s wedding. Thank you all so much for your support.
