A Sore

Brayden has a sore, I guess like a bed sore a.k.a. a pressure sore. Since he spends most of his life with his head up against something it is hard to take care of properly. As you can see he has a bald spot from where he lays/rubs his head. It is hard to keep his head up since he has little head control and really cannot tolerate being on his belly.

I thought bedsores where what old people got from laying around nursing homes that do not take care of their residents...I know that is not nice but if someone said bed sore to me that it my first thought, that is until now.

It has been checked out by his doctor. We are trying a few things it help it heal and then hopefully never returned.

Poor little man! That looks painful. Hope it is healing well. Emily always has her head against things too so she gets really bad knots in her hair (since she has so much of it). Neither one of us like the process of trying to comb out those knots!
