Check out what happened to me!
On Friday October 25th 2012 all was well in
the morning and I played with my ball in the back yard. By 5:00pm I was in pain with a swelling under my right arm.
All that night I was unable to sleep and was in pain. The next morning My Mom
and Dad and Ashley took me to see Dr. Becker and she said I had an infection in my breast
tissue. Below you can see how the infection progressed and how I am doing now.
Me and my ball Friday morning!
Me on my side before my hair was
cut on Saturday morning Oct. 27th, before Dr. Becker saw me.
This is Saturday Oct. 27th after my hair was cut, now you can see the
swelling and the purple part Dr. Becker was worried about. She started me
on two antibiotics and some pain medicine along with some special cream.
This is Sunday night and the damage to my skin was done by the infection
and swelling. Some of my skin was dead and more was dying.
morning and some of the top layer of skin is sloughing off
This is Tuesday Oct. 30th with the burn cream on before it is spread around and
a bandage is put on for the night.
This is Wednesday Oct. 31st and the dead skin is starting to fall off, but
healthy tissue is below. Now I get my sugar bandage and wait two days before I
get to see Dr. Becker.

This is me wiht my sugar bandage, my appetite is getting better!
This is Wednesday Nov. 2nd after the sugar bandage was
removed and the dead tissue came off with the bandage. This is what it
looks like while I am standing up.
This is me on my side while my wound is being washed.
Now I get another sugar bandage and go home for two more
days. My tissue looks good and Dr. Becker gave me more antibiotics to help
me get better.
This is what I look like today Monday Nov. 5th. Looking
better, healthy tissue good blood supply and some healing!!
