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 ❤️

Good morning everyone. I know I haven’t posted an update in a while and that’s because Korryn and her family keep doing what they need to do and are continuing to move forward with Korryn’s healing. Just a reminder these types of recoveries do take a long time to heal, so there maybe times where nothing is updated. See below a message from Ellen, Korryn’s mom.

Good morning, we have been receiving some calls and texts so decided it was time for an update on our burn survivor. Korryn is doing well. She is in speech therapy which is not about her speech, but about her skin. The skin that has, and continues to heal is tight. The therapy is all about massaging and stretching that skin. This is something Korryn needs to multiple times a day. We also visited the burn clinic this week and saw Dr. Baldea. His stance hasn't changed. He says her body is doing what it's intended to do and is healing at her own pace. And everyone heals differently. He won't commit to any future treatment until the burns are visibly healed or until he feels they've healed as much as they are going to. Thank you for the continued thoughts and prayers...as well as meals and all the help in general we really appreciate it and will never be able to thank you all enough! Lastly, as always, please continue to keep Autumn, Ivan & the nurses, doctors & surgeons at Loyola in your prayers as well. #ramstrong

Good morning everyone,

Korryn had her first follow up visit with one of her doctors since being able to leave the hospital. The visit went well and the doctor is pleased with how she is healing. Please continue the prayers and positive thoughts for Korryn and her family, as well as the others who were injured during the accident. Please also continue sharing their stories.

Thanks for all the prayers, well wishes, positive thoughts, and donations. They are helping!
