Head - Side
We did not get a picture of the gash on the side of my head on the day of the accident, but this picture shows the healing that has taken place during the first three days. This wound was originally almost 2 inches long and was gaping open about 1/2 inch following the accident. We cleaned it thoroughly with hydrogen peroxide and then poured pine sap into it, after which we pulled it together and taped it with butterfly bandages.
December 1 - After 10 days the wound has healed considerably. There has been almost no pain due to using pine sap in the cut at the beginning. After that we have put Vitamin E oil on each day. This helps to minimize the tightness from scar tissue.
December 6 - A closeup view.
December 13 - I am so grateful for the healing properties that God has used in the body and in pine sap. I also am deeply grateful for the help and kindness of each one that has had a part in my recovery, and for the many prayers which have gone up for my rapid recovery. I feel deeply indebted to the Lord for His goodness in sparing my life.
