Update on Victoria (IX)

Five-year-old Victoria DeHaan suffered severe wounds after being attacked by dogs three weeks ago. I post this to keep faithful and loving prayer warriors updated on her condition.

Earlier this week Victoria had another sponge vacuum put in again and the doctors were amazed at how well things looked. They did not have to cut away any tissue this time and the infection is gone! For this, we praise God. The doctors are hoping that this procedure will not have to be done again. There is an area as big as a thumb print that has tendons exposed which still needs some tissue growth.  If this proceeds well, the doctors anticipate skin grafting to be done in the near future. Victoria was in good spirits; at times she is quiet and withdrawn. We pray that all may go well in the next days and that she may be given the grace needed as she comes to terms with her condition.
