so in case you were wondering....
The Johns Hopkins team said that Payton's skin grafts are 100% healed. According to my sister, the skin looks "raw" but the nurse assured her that the skin grafts took and he is healed. They have started physical therapy (just walking a little bit) and it's tough for him, but he's doing it. He still has the feeding tube in, but he is eating more because they have decreased his pain medication. Now he gets it when he needs it. Next week they will be transferring him to Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital, where Payton will have more physical therapy. It looks like he will stay a week (or so) there and be released to home. He will still have physical therapy but it will be on an outpatient basis.
A very huge "thank you" to the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Hospital and their staff. Without their skilled and compassionate care, Payton's story could have had a very different ending.
