stitches anyone? a bit tmi/graphic?
My 7 yr old son (asperger's, ocd, odd, spd, and a mood disorder) is high functioning. . . HOWEVER. .
He was bitten by a dog yesterday evening. .. A good sized dog.
He now has stitches in his thigh, and had to have a little reconstructive work on his penis (the dog got his penis ina manner that as the urologist said "peeled the skin off his penis like one would peel a banana). . . He lost over an inch of "damaged tissue" (skin on his penis) and they had to reattach it to the shaft and such. . .
So, theres stitches and everything. . Just not pleasant.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to get him to cooperate during bandaging time. He gets so worked up and stressed over it. All I need to do is rinse it well, put ointment on it (so it stays moist since its in a sensitive area), and put nonstick gauze on it like a little hat. . then were done. . .
