Burn Victims w/Medical Bills & Work Loss
Cody Fuss is also doing great. He's very motivated to get his strength and range of motion back. He said today that he wishes he could have therapy everyday. They tested his grip strength on his "bad" hand and it's still stronger than most men. They also tested his grip strength on his good hand, and it was double that. He is anxious to get back to driving, and when he is strong enough, back to work. He says he wouldn't be able to do it now, because he has to move around tires and other stuff that weigh more than him. If my hunch is correct, it won't take long. He did lose 15 lbs. of muscle while he was here. Those who know Cody knows he didn't have an ounce of fat on him to start with. The doctor explained that the body uses up muscle to heal, so I'm sure it will be frustrating for both Mike and Cody, to not be as strong. The good thing is, they can get it back.
That's all for now. Thanks all!
Cody Fuss is also doing very well. I'm fairly certain he will be discharged on Friday. He will still need therapy 3-5 times per week, so we'll be staying down here for a while yet.
I'm pretty sure they docs and nurses are calling me the crazy Plexus lady. But I don't give a darn. I have both my boys on the XFactor, Probio5, and Biocleanse, and they are both surpassing the everyones expectations. Coincidence? I think not! Maybe one day, the medical society will start to come around, and see how beneficial these products are, and not fight us so hard.
I'm thankful that they have started to sedate Cody for his dressing changes now. It was horrible to watch and listen to him suffer. If I knew from the beginning that all it would take is for him to start swinging during his wound care in order to get sedated, I would have told him to start swinging right away. Mike is a little jealous that Cody gets knocked out and he doesn't.
It is truly amazing what the human body can endure. My men are the bravest men you will ever have the privilege of knowing. They were both literally within a couple seconds of being gone from us.
One minute I was cleaning up the supper dishes, and the next, it was like we were caught in a terrifying movie........Explosion, fire, screaming, more explosion, more screaming, me and Klaudia feeling helpless. Ambulances, police cars, fire trucks, helicopter in my front yard. What the hell? Is this really happening? Yes, yes, it is.
But you know what? We are bigger, and we are stronger than all of this. We have all of you to hold us up when we need it. Thank you all for your support and kindness. We will never be able to pay this all forward, but we will try.
Mike and Kari I love you both. I need some information from you cause I am doing a benefit ride September 27, 2014 for our end of the year ride. I ride with the E.T. DRIFTRIDERS who are a nonprofit group. They came to me yesterday and asked if they could donate all proceeds from the ride to Mike and Cody. Please get back to me. I am praying for you cousin.
Thank you all for your kindness.
