First, an update on Sandy's stitches. They are still in and look good. The best thing we've found to keep them covered is the coban wrap Rosie suggested. It's the wrap that sticks to itself--like you get wrapped around your arm after you donate blood -- and we just found it in the pharmacy aisle at Smiths. We have to wrap it all the way around Sandy's hand to get her to keep it on, as you can see in the picture above. We still end up changing it 3 or 4 times a day because she gets it wet, dirty, takes it off, etc. but it is a hundred times better than any other solutions we've found.
One of Sandy's favorite things is dancing. She has a cd player in her room -- that she can (mostly) work herself and she loves to turn on music and dance.
