Support for Wayne & Kay Bryant

On January 3rd, Wayne was severly burned while working. He repairs tractors and things of that nature, while working on a tractor, he had a rag in his back pocket, somehow he backed into a heater and was set on fire. Thankfully a passerby stopped and helped put him out and called 911, unfortunately Wayne was already burned severly. He was airlifted to Augusgta Burn Center. In the last 5 days he has had 2 surgeries to have temporary grafts done on sections of his burns, and is looking at many more surgeries in the near future. We have found out that he has both 3rd degree and 4th degree burns, most of his body is 4th degree. He was burned on his back side from head to feet, with his head and back being the worst. Wayne has recently gone thru having a pacemaker put in and was suppose to have surgery this month for other medical issues. As you can imagine, they both were out of work when he had the heart surgery which was only about 8 months ago. They just recently both got back to work and were getting back on their feet when this happened. Waynes projected stay at Augusta Burn Center is anywhere from 7-10 months....we were told 4-6 months in ICU, (closer to the 6 months mark more likely), then in a regular room for 3-4 months. 
Kay has been by his side since the day of the accident and without hesitation will continue to be there as this will be a long haul with many ups and downs. There will be no working for a while for either one of them. Unfortunately, daily needs don't go away, neither do bills, nor the numerous medical bills there will be. We are asking for any help possible to aid Kay in being able to stay by his side and to have what she needs while she is away from home. She will have to travel home every so often for doctor's appts and things like that. The money will be used for meals, travel, lodging, future medical bills, and whatever else may come up between now and their return home. Any monetary help would be much appreciated, if you can't donate, we completely understand and ask that you pray for Wayne and for Kay as they endure this.
Thank you so much in advance, and we can't say thank you enough for all the thoughts and prayers sent already. There will never be words to describe how thankful we are for the man that saved him and for all the amazing friends and family!!
