Post-Fire: Update VI

He is back in New York, working for the past several weeks and doing well. He wears very tight sleeves on his fingers nearly all the time – the pressure keeps scar tissue from developing and settling – but otherwise is unbandaged. It’s become clear that paths to full recovery vary widely and take considerable time. Carlo is tenacious about his physical therapy, so they’re definitely improving and he is not at all restricted during normal activity which is excellent news.

When I saw him recently, the burns on his face and head were entirely healed and the scars from the glass cuts were quite faded, although still visible. His eyes are healing, one cornea lagging behind the other, but a decision on how to proceed will wait until sometime this summer. As I understand it, they usually wait about six months minimum to see how the eyes heal before looking at other corrective options.
