Last Saturday the son of a friend of mine was in a burn accident. Sam is Marley's age which is 9. He was life flighted to Children's Hospital. He was severely burned on his right arm and his complete back. He thought to cover his face and it is more like a severe chemical peel and should be fine. Tuesday he went in for grafting. They only had to do two spots, one on his arm and just part of his back. The rest of the back they used biobrane, which is kind of like a saran wrap that helps regenerate new skin. Of course that is the preferred method. They went in to check it today and change the dressings. They did not get good news. None of the membrane took. The skin should have already started turning pink. It has not. They are going to give it until Monday and recheck. If it has not turned pink they will have to do more grafting on Wednesday. They will have to take skin from his stomach and calves. So of course our God is a God of miracles and that is just what we are asking for! Please be in prayer for Sam and for his family.
