Update on our burn victim

I want to thank all of you for the texts, messages and calls to Susan.  She will eventually get around to responding to them, but she is currently in a lot of pain and I have her on strict bed rest.  When she wrote the post Saturday night the pain meds had kicked in and I think  she minimized just how serious her injuries are.  According to the doctor she has first degree burns over 6% of her body which includes both her arms from the elbows down and her face.  She also has several second degree burns on her arms, nose and forehead. We are keeping the wounds clean and keeping silver sulfadiazine cream on them, which is all we can do. She will not be making any public appearances any time soon and will have to learn to direct us all with what to do rather than doing it herself, which will be a learning experience for us all!

Again, thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!
