Today we went in to Marius's room and got to hang out with him for two and a half hours and that was really fun. I think that he's getting comfortable with us because he's trying to communicate a lot more. I'm not sure whether this is completely accurate or not, but he told me today that he is getting more skin grafts on his legs monday and that he's excited about it. Later we watched a movie and then played with a balloon. We hit it back and forth a lot and he had a great time. He learned today that he can use his head to hit it as well as his hands and he got a kick out of that.
Today Jess and I had a really successful day with Marius, which was very encouraging. We hung out in his room for over two hours and just did random things. He's in a bigger room now and there is a new burn victim who is 12 who he seems to be making friends with. Also, we helped the nurse change his blanket and his chest doesn't have burns on it, but it looks like his back probably does. His legs and feet are completely burned also. We saw his hands without the bandages today for the first time and they look like they're healing well but are still pretty red and scabbed.
