I just received a phone call from my baby brother telling me that he spent the day in Cleveland at the Metropolitan Hospital Burn Center. Our nephew Shannon was badly burned yesterday and underwent more than six hours of surgery today. He was helping burn some brush or something and threw a pallet on the fire. When he did, something exploded causing some very serious burns to his lungs, face, eyes, etc. He said it smelled like WD40. My brother just left the hospital after talking to the doctor who said Shannon will probably never see again.

I am asking for prayers for Shannon. He could really use them. I was going to post a picture but knew that once you saw it you wouldn't be able to get it out of your mind. I am counting blessings that Shannon wasn't burned any worse. He may not feel the same way. Only God knows what is in store for Shannon.

Thankful for each new day that I am given!!!
Unexpected twists and turns in our lives
Shannon's life was spared although severely burned
Meg's positive outlook and her very strong "I can do it" attitude!!!
Meg's core strengthening!!
No nausea for Meg for several weeks!!!
Meg coming off the ventilator!!!
Meg being able to be an outpatient on July 26!!!

Great doctors for Ken and I!!!
Ken's continued improvement however small or slow
Too many positives and blessings to list them all here....Praise the Lord!!!

    Prayers bing sent for all. Burns of that nature are terrible
and very painful. DH was burned on his face, chest, hands
and arms 12 years ago and it was a long, slow recovery.
