Burns.....

 This is my grandson Skylar, at Lynzie's wedding. Matt and his daughter Emma in the back ground. Skylar has these bandages on because of burns. He was helping their neighbor man burn a pile of trash from his out building. There was an aerosol can in the fire and it exploded. Burning Skylar's arms and three fingers on his right hand.  He had to go to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment. I am thankful, he did not have to have skin grafts, that he was not blinded or burn in the face. He could not finish out his baseball sports because of this.  I just wanted to warn others of what can happen when burning trash.  This could easily have been a tragedy . He may have some scarring but nothing compared to what could have been. 
  Hope all of you have a great weekend.   XO

  1. Oh my goodness, I am so sorry this happened. We hear of accidents like this almost every year. It must be very tough for him to go through, but as you said, it could have been so much worse. May God grant him a quick recovery.

    1. Skylar cried a little when it happened...but he has been really tough about getting the bandages changed and the burns cleaned. He goes for another follow up in 2 weeks. He will heal, there may be scars but nothing like if he had a skin graft. Thank you for the good wishes. xoxo,Susie

  2. That is so scary. I'll pray that he heals up completely and has a speedy recovery. Boys....they have to do things that put them in harms way. And we pray a lot, don't we? Hugs, Diane

    Thanks for the sweet words about my garden room. I guess IKEA likes to go with generic colors, but the black was definitely not me.

  22. Oh, Susie, I am so sorry Skylar was hurt! The same thing happened to my cousin when we were kids...just buring trash. Its what we did the country. He had similar bandages and injuries. Its so scary! He healed and could use his hands ok after. Hope this young man has a good outcome and sorry he missed the last of the baseball season.
    Prayers for complete and speedy healing.
