Post Burn Recovery
Organized by: Jennifer Gardiner
Jamie (James) was burned Saturday the 19th at his shop at our home. He had to be flew out to Medstar Washington Hospital. His body is 10% burned, his chest and right hand are 1st & 2nd degree while his left arm and hand are 3rd degree burned. He had a successful surgery Monday, July 21, for grafting on his chest, right and left hand which the doctors are confident they took. Thursday, July 24th, surgery was to start the grafting on his left arm, while successful, they were not able to do any grafting because of swelling on his arm, he will still have to have a 3rd surgery, which is scheduled for Monday, July 28. We are grateful it wasn't as bad as it could have been and even though Jamie doesn't want to be there we are thankful for the nurses and doctors who are helping get him home as soon as possible. Thank you all for messages of concern and love you have sent to us all. I will do my best to update as the days pass but it may be hard while traveling to and from and keeping up with McKinze and James. We are all hanging in there and can't wait to have daddy home.
