I know when I read a blog and then there's nothing for a while I do wonder. When I started this thing I wanted it to be all about yarn and knitting needles! It still will be but I won't be around for a few weeks. My husband was badly burned last Saturday 07-19 involving a huge smoker (the $3000 size smoker/grill). He was airlifted 2 hours away from our home to the University of Virginia Medical Center. Thankfully he does not have 3rd degree burns that require grafting. He is actually home now which is a far cry from the 10 days to 2 week stay they first proposed. His burns were on his face and neck, both arms from his biceps to his finger tips, his belly and thighs to ankles. He's obviously covered in bandages. Mobility is difficult and his legs are presenting with some swelling now that we hope to get under control. His face is looking really good now and we are thankful for each day that another area is healing.
That said we know of another mom in the knitter community that has a 10 year old son with extensive burns needing skin grafting all over his body! He was taken from our area in Virginia to the Shriner's Children's Hospital Burn Center in Ohio recently as well. When my husband is hurting he calls out "Austin's" name and prays for him. Please remember him in your prayers too. GOD is GOOD!!
