On December 21st, 2012, Andy Holmburg came to this world along with his twin sister. Just recently he was in an accident burning at least 40% of his body. His mother, Sarah Holmburg, was also burned while saving her son. Andy was flight for life to Children's while his mother was taken by ambulance to another hospital more than 60 miles away.

The flash fire happened on January 13th. He had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his hands, chest, and face. He is recovering at Children's Hospital being treated by a fantastic group of doctors, nurses, and burn specialists. His swelling has started to decrease and his lungs and eyes are in good condition. He is currently being sedated. He had a full bandage change Monday morning and hospital staff like his progress so far. He has a skin graft procedure tentatively scheduled for Thursday. We will post updates as they become available on his condition.

Father and husband, Michael Holmburg, is one of the many important employees at Western Sugar. He has been with us now for almost 10 years. Mike, Sarah, and their 4 kids have always been very active with the employees, we all have become one big family, and more than just co-workers.

Andy continues to fight his injuries and shows great strength. As a Western Sugar family we are asking for any kind of donation to help with the recovery of this little guy.  It may go towards helping the family recover emotionally, financially, or even transportation and lodging while making all these trips to Children’s Hospital for the next few months.

Please help us to show how important the Western Sugar Family is by supporting the Holmburg Family at this time. Thank you for all your support!

Just got wheeled back into the OR. Today is going to be one of his biggest surgeries, his facial rebuild. One of two things can happen, if his skin is not quite ready, they will just do debridement and rebandage. If everything checks out ( which the doctors are hopeful of) they will do the auto grafts of his full face. They can take the donor skin from his scalp area, this helps to have the best color match. Andy has a very meticulous plastic surgeon, and said that he wants conditions to be perfect, so there is little to no lasting cosmetic affects. If he has the full surgery, he will also be intubated for several days, so he can heal completely and aesthetically. We will keep you all posted.

So what's a busy 4 year old do when he's cooped up in the hospital? He tries to do everything he normally does. Here he is with his friend Jared (one of the best RNs around) putting stickers on his sliding door and interacting with one of his favorite Child Life workers, who brought him the stickers. He put them on all by himself.

Just to update...
Andy was extubated yesterday morning (meaning his ventilator tube was removed) and is working on breathing for himself. This can be one of the difficult parts of recovery, he has to find his "rhythm" again. They also need for him to have productive coughs, to help keep his lungs and airways open and clear. It's normal to have this removed and replaced several times throughout recovery, after surgeries, or for anesthesia assistance. As of tonight, it is still out, and he is working hard to find his rhythm and maintain normal oxygen levels. Tough little fighter here.
