Our little brave boy decided to try and light a fire with gasoline in our fire pit yesterday afternoon. The container exploded and caught him on fire. We have a long road of recovery ahead of us, but God is on our side. Dr Arnoldo and the burn unit staff are the best around and we know he's in great hands. They will decide tomorrow whether or not to move forward with surgery of grafting his 3rd degree burns on his right arm and back. We are thankful for everyone's concern and prayers for our little man. Hunter said he never knew he was this tough and he wanted his friends at school to know he didn't even cry. Kristen and I will try to keep y'all updated the best we can. Right now it's day to day. Again, we feel everyone's love and are very thankful for your prayers.
The doctors came in this morning to remove Hunter's wraps to find out that the burn had revealed more of its ugly head. He has to have skin grafts on the whole right side of his back and from his right elbow to his right shoulder. His burns are worse than we thought, but he is tough and very strong minded boy.
Kathy: As a friend of the Finney family, I'm setting up a fund to help them deal with current and upcoming expenses for Hunter's treatment and recovery. There is a whole community of people who know and love this sweet family and many have asked how they can help. You can make a donation personally and also post this link to your social media accounts to let other people know about them. This is a strong, godly, hard-working, loving family and they are facing a long journey. Please pray for them and help as you can.
