As most of my friends and family know on Tuesday Nov. 7th my life took a quick and tragic change for the worst due to a grease fire accident.  Upon smelling smoke coming from my kitchen i realized it wasnt food but old grease burning.  As i tried to get everything under control, I must sadly admit that I lost control and the flames jumped across the pots like dominoes.  With no fire extenguisher at hand and determinatin to not let anything happen to the most important person in the world to me, yes I did the dummy, and ran out the house witht the pots.  In doing so,  I gave myself 3rd degree burns to my left hand and arm, along with both of my legs, and feet.  I was life flighted to Shands Hospital on the UF Campus in Gainsville , FL where they are currently taking awsome care of me with skin graphs and rehab.  I WILL  be ok.

Unfortunatly, at the worst time of the year i will be out of work and unable to provide for my lil mama, as i do deligently with every breath i take.  Im not one to ask for handouts,   but 3 to 5 months out of work can be devistating, and thats what im afraid of.  

Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and every little bit helps.  Stay blessed and stay prayed up.
