Much better now

WARNING These pictures are graphic....

They really aren't for you if you have a weak stomach....

Do you REALLY want to see these?

OK, fine.

Here is Day after the burn. The doctors have taken off all extra skin.
Here is Spencer on Day 2. You can tell he was burned on his face as well. If you look closely at the bandages, you will notice a lot of "weeping" through.
Spencer's face at it's worse. The skin has started peeling off. Maybe it looks better from the side?

It only took a few days to get his face back to normal again thanks to BACITRACIN--an anti-bacterial ointment similar to Neosporin.
We did all sorts of treatments to Spencer's hands. This is a natural clay, called Redmond Clay, that we applied a few times. It really did work wonders on those big hands.
Other products that we used are SILVADINE and bacitracin and a natural product from Figi made out of pig fat and herbs that hasn't been patented yet (thanks to Spencer's Great Aunt Ruth and Cousin Emily).

This is probably 3 or 4 days after the burn.

Three or four days after the burn.

This is about one and a half weeks after the burn.
I feel like Spencer has healed at an extremely rapid rate. It's been two and a half weeks now and he's ready to go back to work. He has full function of both hands and all is well. We are blessed.

I am so glad to hear he is getting better so quickly. I wanted to call and see how everything is going, but do not seem to have your number in my new phone. Send me a email with the number, because I would like to get caught up. Love you all!

WOW, his face looked so great, it was like night and day. I saw the first pic and then he looked like nothing had ever happened to his face, but his hands were still in bags. That was amazing. His hands are healing very quickly, that was so great to see. You definitely have the healing power of the Lord and of prayer and faith on your side. I am so glad for you guys.
