Things have been quiet on this page. As I’ve mentioned before that when you don’t hear anything it means that things are progressing and there isn’t much to update on.

Well here we are a year and a month later. Korryn’s parents, family and friends have all been truly thankful and grateful for all the donations, love, prayers and thoughts pouring out on them and for them.

As time has gone on these last months since I have made a post Korryn continues to heal and live her life. She’s a remarkable beautiful young woman. The days haven’t all been hard nor have they all been easy, but Korryn and her family have continued living their lives and doing what has been needed to keep moving forward day by day.

Korryn has been doing well in school. She is happy her other survivor friends are all also back at school now. Not all going full time but all have been able to make it back to school and keep themselves going forward with their lives and their future. It’s a wonderful feeling that I get to type that word future. They all have a future and I know that God has a plan for their lives and He isn’t done with them here yet. As Korryn knows what she wants to do in her life she keeps on striving towards her goals. Some goals are small some are big. Some goals have been achieved and others she is still working on accomplishing. She’s gone on some college visits already and has dipped her toes into her future, but she is also present in her current daily life and living her teenage life. It hasn’t stopped one bit, it’s changed some but it hasn’t stopped. Korryn has continued in her cheerleading season, enjoyed seeing her favorite Spanish teachers (those of whom have inspired her future), as a newly licensed driver is still learning the ropes, hanging out with her friends, going to all her classes and getting her work done, picked her classes for her senior year, and even attended many family and friend celebrations.

As life is going on and much healing has been done there is still more healing to do. So even as time has gone on and the donations and comments have slowed down please don’t forget Korryn and her family or friends. Many of you continue to pray or think of Korryn, her family and the other survivors and those prayers and thoughts are felt. Please don’t stop the prayers and thoughts and please remember to be careful around fires and teach, tell and remind your children no matter how old they are what is and isn’t ok to do around fires and what to do in case of an emergency.

If you feel led to make an encouraging comment please leave one. It’s the love, prayers and support that continues to help with Korryn and her family’s healing.

Once again thanks isn’t enough to say for how grateful Bob, Ellen, Korryn and Ronin are for all you have done for them. You are all so very much appreciated from the bottoms of their hearts.

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything, so I wanted to give an update. We have passed 6 months since this accident has happened. Korryn continues to go about her day to day activities and is doing well in school and cheer. She is still healing and does continue to see drs but less frequently as when this first happened. Thanks again for all your support, love, thoughts and prayers.

Hi everyone,

I know it’s been a while since there has been an update. Just remember when there isn’t an update in a while all is going as it should be. Slowly progressing in the right direction. Thank you all so much for your prayers, thoughts, financial support as well as sharing this story! It is all very much appreciated! See the update below from Ellen, Korryn’s mom.

Hi everyone, I apologize for not posting an update in quite a while. As I've mentioned in the past, burn healing takes a long time so, there hasn't really been much to update. I would say that Korryns burns are about 90% healed. There are still some areas that are proving to be a bit stubborn. We have been visiting Loyola twice a week since the first week in June for speech therapy. Those appointments consist of massaging and stretching the new skin that has developed during the healing process. Simple things like smiling, raising her eyebrows, yawning, eating, (especially her favorite thing, hot dogs!) Are all difficult, even painful, as that new skin is so tight. Korryn has done really well learning the massage techniques and stretching exercises that she needs to do MANY times during the day, EVERYday. Last week Monday we saw the burn doctor and although he is pleased with the burn healing so far, he showed some concern regarding some scar bands that have started to appear, so he referred us to a plastic surgeon. We saw him Friday morning and it went ok. He too was a bit concerned with the scar bands, but also won't commit to any type of surgery until the burns are fully healed. He did say that a compression mask should help reduce the size of the existing scar bands and hopefully prevent any new ones from developing. However, as I'm sure you can figure, she can't be fitted for the mask until the burns are fully healed, so at this point we wait...❤️
Again, there's just not enough words to express our sincere gratitude to you all for the prayers, love & support! As always, please keep the prayers coming for ALL of the survivors as they progress through their journey's and continue to heal. ❤️ #RAMSTRONG #KORRYNSTRONG #AUTUMNSTRONG #ALYSSASTRONG #IVANSTRONG ❤️
