Pig + Human + Gook

Lovely, isn't it? The yellowish, snotty stuff is the Oasis (pig intestine). When they clean out my wound with these snipper things, I do not feel a thing so I know that there is none of "me" inside that wound. It is all pig. HOWEVER, the red stuff is my own skin cells trying to grow under the Oasis. That will begin to become skin over time.

This picture is from a few days ago when Dr. Carbonell made little cuts all around my wound to deliberately make it bleed. He told me that there is good stuff in the blood that will stimulate cell growth. We put on another layer of Oasis and then pinched the wound together with a steri-strip. We'll see what happens next week.
