His biggest hurdle right now is going to be infection...
Not only will he be at risk for infection from the burns, he'll run the risk of infection at the graft sites.
If he can get past this without any infection he's golden. Sounds like he's in good hands.
Poor guy... There is NONE of this that is even remotely comfortable.
If they keep him comfortable with pain meds and IV antibiotics all should come out ok.
Good luck... I truly wish him the best!

When I got a skin graft on my arm they forgot to tell me that part, when I woke up from the surgery and my ass hurt, I got scared they'd operated on the wrong part and freaked out to the point they had to restrain me.

I wonder if theres some kinda "online get well soon card" we could all put a note on and print out and give to him.
Must be, surely someones thought of that already

Just prayed, and will keep your brother, you and your family in my prayers.
When my daughter broke her back in an auto accident she didn't have insurance either. We went through a considerable process, but were able to get her covered by Medicaid becuse of her independent status and low income. She ended up owing $0 of over a hundred thousand in bills.
She was also in St. Johns. That hospital was near Toledo though.

Your brother, you and your family are in my prayers. I hope he has a quick recovery.
As for not having insurance, most hospitals have a financial aid program to help with this sort of thing. Also, if it happened on the job, his employer should pay for it. Or he could file an L/I claim. Best of luck to your brother, you and your family getting through this.

Here's a Google link to the hospital in Springfield, if that's where they took him. Should help with directions and phone numbers and such.
Obviously we too will keep you, your family, and your brother in prayer..

Not a problem at this house either, but I would be getting a lawyer involved and making sure his job pays for the medical bills....
Never heard of St. Johns, but John Hopkins is in baltimore
