    Th ank you so much for your kindness. My husband remained in the Burn Trauma ICU until last FFriday the 12th. He has a infection in his blood stream and remains on a feeding tube. He will be undergoing a long recuperation with plastic surgery. He is now in South Health Rehab Center. Thank you and keep in touch. God Bless.
