My son Shawn was in a horrific situation, he was burned over 61% of his body and they are all 3rd degree burns. He is going to need several surgeries and painful skin grafts. Shawn was living paycheck to paycheck and we do not have much money either. I know my family would be grateful for any help we can get. At this time he is in critical but stable condition so I as his mother need to do this for him.

I haven't wrote an update in a while so i thought i would write one now. Shawn is getting there slowly but surely he still has a very long road ahead but he is awake now. He is totally breathing on his own. They still have the trake in his neck cause he needs more surgiers and they won't take that out till they are sure he doesn't need anymore surgeries. He is able to say one word at a time in a raspy whisper. He can amswer my questions. He says he only remembers a very little about the incident so idk if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I know he has to be scared not knowing why or how this happened to him. But before we tell him anything i want to check with the physicatrist to make sure what he is capable of handling. We want to thank everyone for the continued prayers i am a ferm believer in the power of prayer. All your kind words have really kept me going on this extremely trying time. Shawn still has a lot of recovering to do and he is going to have to learn how to do everything all over again but i have faith he will get there. He has his family right beside him and we will do all we can for him. Thank you all again.

As of a few days ago Shawn has been breathing for a few hours a day totally on his own, no support from the ventilator for about 6 hrs a day. This is really great news. They say getting off the vent is really hard and takes a long time so it is very good that Shawn can even come off the vent at all it is absolutely great that he can do it for 6 hrs a day. They also say the skin grafts look good they are pleased with where they are in the recovering process. Shawn is definitely heading in the right direction. We are still asking for prayers and any donations you guys can spare, no amount too small. Like I said before if everyone that viewed those horrible videos would donate $5 or even $1 we would be a lot better off then we are now. 9 thousand and then some people viewed those videos imagine a $5 donation from each of those people. Anyway prayers are just as appreciated. Thank you so much. Keep fighting baby boy, we are so proud of how hard you've been fighting all this time. Shawn I am super impressed with the strength you have shown and how hard you've been fighting. You have truly shown an amazing amount of courage. We all love you so much.

Jan 20th 2016! I have an update on Shawn, I called the hospital about an hr ago and they told me he is off the vent and has been completely breathing on his own for a few hours and he is doing great. They want him to be able to do 4hrs off but if he can tolerate it they are gonna shoot for 6hrs. They also said all his lab work looks really good and the skin grafts look great. They still won't be able to tell how well the grafts took for about 10 days, but they said it is looking exactly how it is supposed to. I am very happy with the progress he has made. Shawn we love you and are praying for your speedy recovery. We are also trying to take care of everything so all you have to do is worry about getting better. We love you baby boy stay strong and keep doing great.

Jan 11th Got a call from the dr today they need to put Shawn on dialysis, they said his kidneys weren't functioning correctly. The medicine they were giving him didn't help as well as they would have liked so instead of waiting till things got worse they decided it would be best to start him on it now. I am very upset and having a hard time absorbing all of this. The dr's tell me that everything else is moving in the right direction. I hurt so badly for my son his poor body has gone through so much in this past month. Please continue to pray for my son and my family. God I need you to keep giving Shawn the strength to fight. He has to fight and fight hard. Shawn we all love you me Mark Katie and Amanda love you so much and we are all right here by yourside fighting right along with you pls baby pls keep fighting.
