25902822_1513148160.1833_funddescriptionOur son Nathaniel Bautista was severely burned on December 3rd 2017 on over 70% of his body while spending the night with family/ friends. My husband and I woke to the horrific phone call that our son was going to be life flighted. The fire caused him to  receive 3rd degree burn to his entire right side of his body, deep 2nd degree to his left. He is expected to be in the hospital for close to six months while he receives surgeries, graphs, rehabilitation and treatment. We have a long road ahead but he is strong and we ask for everyone to send positive vibes and prayers.

It's been a while since the last update and I am sorry. Nate has continued to progress positively. The alternate skin grafts seem to be doing what they are supposed to, which is get his legs ready for grafting from his own donor site. We are not sure when that particular operation will take place and are hoping to find out more this coming week. We are still in the PICU but he is in good spirits, some days harder than others. We ask that you continue to pray for him and keep sending your positive thoughts.

Once they got in the OR yesterday they decided to move in a different direction than originally planned. He will be in the OR tomorrow to receive other donor skin in order to tell if the infection is gone, if those grafts are uncompromised then that means the infection is weak enough to actually graft using his own skin hopefully being able to graft in both legs at one time. Please keep your prayers and positiveity coming.

Tomorrow will be Nate's 16th surgery we are hoping that the aggressive treatment on his legs has worked and that we can hopefully get one leg grafted tomorrow with take. So please take a moment and say a prayer or send a positive thought his way he is continuing to fight and it would be a great thing to have one leg grafted before his birthday on Monday.

This mornings dressing change did not go as planned unfortunately none of the artificial grafts took on Nate's legs and he has an infection on both legs. They will be placeing 6 cathiders in each calf and 10 in each thigh to administer antibiotics 3 times a day over the next five days to try and combat the infection as best possible so that they can hopefully start patching the legs together with grafts. We are looking at Nate's 15th surgery tomorrow and after yesterday and today we are at 32 units of blood so far. I am so proud of this kid and his resilience he continues to fight everyday. As he goes through his recovery he often asks about that night but more about how everyone else was doing today he asked how I felt when I got the phone call, and I told him all I wanted to do was get to him as fast as I could. He said he knew he was going to be ok once I got there he just wished he wouldn't of been so burnt so that he could of given me a hug because he hasn't been able to give me a hug since he left to spend the night that night. That is something I can't wait to do, I can't wait to hug him, hopefully in the next couple months we will get that chance. ❤️
