No Blisters, No Pictures, No Issues

Still in our pattern of smooth sailing.
Raquel is refusing to open her eyes this morning, but she's behaving so it can't be that big of a deal.
Last night had two loud cry fests, but no big deal.
I have noticed her breath isn't what Cordelia's was.  It's strange to smell her wounds a bit from inside her mouth or maybe it's the formula gasses making their way up her esophagus. 
Anyway it's an unpleasent sweet acid smell of rotten flesh. 
It's hard not to notice when she's laying on my chest and wakes from a deep sleep to belt out a cry and a few uncomfortable twitches.  Might have formed a new foot blister actually.  In her sleep her right leg would flinch every few minutes while I was attending to her.  I guess we'll have to take a peek this afternoon when I get home from work.  I just hope if there is something there it won't have grown too large.
But all and all she's been great.  Exceptional.  Dressing changes have been a breeze for a couple weeks now. The only issue is to get her to like the baths again.  She's developed some strange fear that didn't exist early on.  Yesterday I was able to play with her a bit while she was in and it seemed to calm her more then the last few weeks of screaming and coughing.
We'll see.  It's actually become one our biggest issues other then her feet and shoes.
