 EB Awareness week


Where to start Evan has been doing okay for now. He is in school and loves it still.
In October Evan was admitted in the hospital. He had bad UTI and skin infection. He was on two IV antibiotics and on he had to take by mouth. He also had abrasion he had his eyes closed for 13 days. He missed 3 weeks of school while he was sick.
Then we had to go to Cincinnati to see his doctors. I was worried because he was getting so many skin infection. They really couldn't tell me why. Then we saw the skin graft doctor she said we cant do no more skin grafts because he hasn't heal for m the last one. they are going to try and use pig skin. We will go back to Cincinnati to try that after Christmas.
Evan had good Halloween he wore his costume and got a lot of candy.
Now we are getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. He has made his list for Santa. He keeps on telling me when is Santa coming.

Evan has started school and he loves it. He is doing really good. He does miss some of his friends from last year. But he is making new friends.

Evan just turn 5 on September 11. I still cant believe he is 5. He has had hard 5 years, but he is strong and a fighter. We are going to keep on fighting for cure. So he can be EB free and so can the other kids and adults. Evan wants to be like his friends he don't want the trach or his catheter. But I just keep on telling him one day he will not have it. Evan had great birthday. I got to take him to N.C. where he wouldn't to go. He got to see his two favorite drivers, Dennis, Ryan Anderson, they drive the monster trucks.. Then the next weekend we had him party with his friends. He loved it. He told me this was the best birthday ever.

We have to go back to Cincinnati next month. to see the ENT doctor and see the doctor that did the grafts. I think we are going to do some more grafts. I want to do some on his toes. His toes are so bad.

Evan has had a hard time lately. He has been fight skin infection, His trach keeps getting clogged up. He has been really sore. We are having good summer, we went to Tennessee for the weekend the kids had great time.
We just got back from Cincinnati for EB Clinic. We got to meet some new friends, and saw some old friends. Its so nice to meet other EB family. Evan had to go to the OR to get his SP Catheter changed out and they was going to see if they could open his penis. They couldn't open his penis it was closed all the way. They said maybe later on they might try to open and put some skin around the penis. But he couldn't do it right now. He was have some other problems with his trach., that came first. The ENT had to look in his airway. Evan had granulation tissue beside of his trach, he had to cute it out. His upper airway has gotten worse. No improvement of his upper airway. He said if Evan didn't get his trach, he wouldn't be hear.
 So after surgery we went to clinic. They want Evan to drink PediaSure the one that has more calories. He needs to gain some weight. he hasn't lost any but he isn't gaining. We are going to try some new ointment and new dressing to see if it will help his neck.
Evan starts school in September he will go 5 days week for 3 hours a day.
