First Time in the Bathtub

Because of Walker's broviac, he isn't allowed to be submerged in water. Well, this Momma got tired of is horrible diaper rash that wasn't going away, so I put him in the bathtub.

And he LOVED it! The only thing we have to do is not get the dressing wet. You see that circle thing? That's his antibiotic sponge-y thing and under it is the incision site. It still has sutures but this Friday will be 6 weeks and then we'll be able to give him a bath and get it wet.

This is what it looks like without the dressing.

The redness is from peeling off the dressing. It doesn't bother him.
He was kicking his feet and moving his arms and smiling!

So we've been putting him in his bathtub for the week and the other day he was really upset that he had to get out. He had a meltdown the size of Texas when I took him out. I was really afraid that he would not like water because he hasn't been in it before.
