Even though she had a hard night yesterday, today Catherine was happy as always. Yesterday, I woke up screaming when I saw her legs bleeding as a result of intense scratching. I never had that problem before, she always scratches her face while sleeping, but not her legs. Every night, we wrap her arms and legs with bandages and we use tight-fitting clothing to prevent those situations; but yesterday, she found a way to roll up her pants and take the bandages off. I feel guilty because I forgot to put on her anti-scratch sleeves to avoid this bad experience.
